RE: New production 12AX7 for Paragon System E phono preamp

Clean, quiet, and highly affordable is the Sovtek 12AX7LPS, which will be OK even with AC heating, given its spiral wound, hum bucking, heater.

I suggest you use another variant in the line section. The "reissue" TungSol will give you a bit of the famous NJ "chime", which seems to be needed.

In any event, discuss your needs with AA sponsor Jim McShane. He deals in honest advice and properly culled merchandise.
