    This now has me thinking about swapping out the new issue Mullard 12AX7s in the onboard phono stage. Those of you running VAC phono stages, what tubes do you like here?

    Regarding tonal/imaging qualities. I do feel I could use just a little more image precision from my phono rig.
    Iíve stuck to the stock tubes for now. But I have plenty I could try. I love how it sounds now, so I havenít felt the urge.

    A question I was hoping the group could help answer for me. Regarding the tubes in the onboard phono. Are those always "on" even when listening to other inputs? I think the answer is yes just wanted to confirm.
