Questions about tubes and gear that glows. FAQ

RE: We were talking about old manufacture tubes versus new ones

Yes chips

this is the point .

Just to make an example :i have several el34 sed =c= quuartets

that i could use ;now they are expensive and seem to be the

latest big thing among "new" production el34's.

They are now considered Nos and very sought after.

I prefer to use Genalex kt77 or Mullard el34 reissue :i found them

more "overall" satisfyng and complete than the now"nos"old svetlaana

from St.Petersburgh;i am not saying that they are bad ,no,i 'm just

saying that sometimes they lack in punch and somewhat "slubby"on

bass;winged c are marvellous on acoustic jazz and guitar ,voices

but sometimes soft on other kind of music .

If you only listen acoustic or baroque music ,you''l may find them

perfect .

I am a 360° music guy and i don 't want to listen to tubes ,i want to

listen to music .

So i find nos mullard xf2 lacking in some departs so they do old

Sylvania 6ca7;don't take me wrong:they are marvellous tubes ,but

they don't hold on with all the music aound in 2017.

I think "now"tubes are more complete in this respect.

This is my experience (my last listening :the complete Beethoven

sonata dy Andreas Schiff,but now i am listening to the last album

by Sam Amidon)
