RE: Buyig Tubes

I get about 5 years of life out of my 6AS7 tubes in my AtmaSphere M60 amps. There are 8 per amp so a total of 16.

I go through periodic acquisition fits when I get nervous about supply or an itch to try something new. I just learned my most recent binge purchasing NOS 6AS7GA tubes was not a good move as these don't have long life in the AtmaSphere amps.

I probably have 60 new and still-good used tubes "in stock".

My incoming MA1s will have 14 6AS7s per side for a total of 28. I'm not crazy about the heat, energy use, or retubing cost, but the reliability and sound quality make up for the downsides.
