We have been told that you need 12awg to couple a 12AX7 plate to the next stage. Major improvements were cited. Dennis also claims there are "hundreds of amperes in musical peaks" at this stage in the amp.
We have been coached relentlessly on the need for double and triple runs of 19awg wire for signal path.
Now we hear this is all wrong. Too thick a wire kill the high end? What about all the claimed improvements over the years? You mean none of these people ever noticed that until now?
When is this BS going ot stop being condoned on this forum? Fortunately it's not tolerated over in DIY AUdio.
Did any of the followers consider the loss of highs may be the weak 12AX7 or equivalent driving into the output grid capacitance?
"Did any of the followers consider the loss of highs may be the weak 12AX7..."
More likely the acoustic bias of the listener. My amps always sound better after a cup of coffee. :)
Buy Chinese. Bury freedom.
Just for the record : No one I know of, or myself, has ever used 12 AWG wire to connect a RCA jack's "hot" terminal, to the grid of a driver tube, ever. I think some posting have gotten it incorrectly. or are flustered.
Have fun, I do !!
