Looking for a new Amp or Preamp? If you're after tubes, post over here.

Thanks - interesting points! Maybe others will weigh in?

So, as I understand what you are saying, since the microphonics are caused by an undesired motion of the filament, then a tube damper couldn't help for two reasons: (1) airborne vibration would not reach the filament through a vacuum and (2) mechanical vibration would be jiggling the filament because of the tubes coupling to the preamp socket and it's coupling to the PCB, etc., and a tube damper surely couldn't impact that.

Makes sense to me! Hmmm.
"If you are the owner of a new stereophonic system, this record will play with even more brilliant true-to-life fidelity. In short, you can purchase this record with no fear of its becoming obsolete in the future."
