    You ever hear the V-5xe. A guy wants to sell me one. I like tubes.. KT77 is a good sound to me. I enjoy accentuating true sound of horns, piano, violin. Not looking for a stereo sound. I want an accurate sound.
    Thank

    Hey Kuoppis, did you buy some silver wire from Rio Grande and connect them to Eico plugs, then bond all together. I have cosidered this. Did you make your own box of dialectic minerals ?
    Please share if you would
