RE: Siemens e288cc in a Cary sli-80

Plenty of room on the Cary.

I'm currently using the Amperex 7308 and it's great. Every other tube in the amp is Sophia Electric blue glass. They're also great.

The system in general is slightly on the warm/sweet side of neutral. The E288cc was suggested to me as a more transparent alternative to the Amperex. I thought I'd try a "roll" in that sonic direction.

My main concern is that a search of AA found someone claiming that the extra current draw could fry a transformer. I was hoping that someone who tried this tube in the SLI-80 could tell me of their experience.
