New tubes:new life, shoulda done this sooner

So, my primary/only amp for a few years was my Jolida 502, and when the tubes gave out on me i let it sit by the wayside for years. Didn't help that my budget was tight. I'd since picked up a really nice Cary integrated and it certainly does have that "triode cream" as Dr Rosenberg liked to call it, but it's far more sensitive to what comes in and doesn't have a heck of a lot of drive. Today, i bought a matched quad of output tubes for the poor neglected Jolida and I'm enjoying the heck out of this thing.
Certainly not as good at low volumes as my 300b SET that i had since acquired, but that doesn't rock the less efficient of the speakers i have, nor does it go down as far.
Technically, it's up for sale, but this may have changed my mind.

Even if i find a buyer I might have to put off sending it until i get a chance to plug it into my JBL 4331As which have been kept at my dad's due to the larger room sizes.
