RE: Another ear 834p troubleshooting question

Interesting that you mentioned gain hiss. I have a EAR 834P as well and thought that there was an issue with mine, but yours seem to have gain hiss at higher volume as well. However, when music plays I can't hear it.

I would be careful with swapping tubes in the EAR 834P. I find that the PCB bends a lot when you push the tubes into the socket. I would be afraid that one day all that pushing could create a hairline crack in the PCB, cutting one or some of the traces.

Just wondering if there is some dirt or oxidation on some of your tube pins or sockets that may cause some connection issues and therefore the sounds you are hearing.

I always stuck to 12AX7 or 5751 tubes in my EAR 834P
