    There are only two Philips PCC88's in my CJ GAT2, but the UK importer/distributor recommends listening without the supplied damping rings in situ.

    It's subtle, but I agree with his advice!

    I used some Herbie's on my KT-88 tubes, couldn't tell much difference. I probably ought to try some on the 6922's.

    I also use the Herbie’s on all tubes of my Quicksilver full function preamp. Even the rectifier 6x4’s. My first impression was that they quieted down the preamp slightly. But to be honest, I could not say they provided any real improvement. Hey, they don’t degrade either. Like many tweaks, I gave them a try. They were cheap enough. I keep them in the preamp nonetheless. My Bedini CD demagnetizer is collecting dust in some nebulous draw though.
