With the right tube, this amplifier is great! Its quiet and most importantly, lets the music flow without distracting high frequency artifacts but also preserves the details of real people playing real instruments. It's a bargain, pure and simple.
Note: Good E88CC tubes are expensive these days.
Am I wrong or are you recommending a different tube for this to sound better?
For me, I needed a different tube than the stock one but your tastes may differ. The amp seems to take on a different character depending on the tube and I found a good match for my tastes with a NOS Telefunken.
I think it is better to stick to the 6DJ8/6922/E88CC family of tubes. The amp was designed for those (stock = EH 6922). The 12AT7 is from a different family.
Thanks for the advice a little too quick with the eBay search I guess will do.
