    Re: Suggestions for 6SN7 Tubes

    Now that I am sticking with the Audio Mirror amps I decided to do some rolling again.

    The 1952 Sylvania Chrome Dome are very detailed, maybe even a tad too much. They produce a very forward image...

    Re: Suggestions for 6SN7 Tubes

    I do have the Phillips Rectifier in the Dennis Had Dragon Inspire and the 6sl7's input tubes for the Audio Mirror are also a NOS Phillips.

    Re: Suggestions for 6SN7 Tubes

    The Black Treasures are the driver tubes in the Audio Mirror amps. Very nice indeed and Vlad suggested them to me. He told me he felt they were the best driver tube match for his amplifiers.

    Re: Suggestions for 6SN7 Tubes

    The 1956 CBS/Hytron Brown Base 5692 tubes arrived. Much quieter then the RCA Gray Glass. So far quite impressed with the sound quality. Very musical... hard to describe, but very inviting sounding...

    I had a nice discussion with Vladimir last evening. I had an issue with the new pre-amp that he built for me which he is taking care of. He did tell me the tube he likes the best to roll in...

    Re: Suggestions for 6SN7 Tubes

    Since both my Audio Mirror mono blocks and the Dennis Had headphone amp use 6SN7's I decided to get a few sets to roll. I already have the tubes that came with the AM... I believe they are NOS...
