RE: Question about matching tubes between phono pre-amp & headphone amp

Thanks, Mechans, for those very helpful suggestions. I'm prepared to spend more on a tube if / when I can be fairly certain that the upgrade is sonically evident to my own ears, but I'm certainly not willing (or able) to spend hundreds of dollars on a single tube if the improvement is less than staggering. From what I can see on ebay and various online vendors (via Google searching), tube prices are all over the map, and the variety of types & brands & years & other production details are simply overwhelming. But at some point I definitely would like to try out one of the British makes you mentioned (Mullard or Brimar), so thanks again for those suggestions. And I will also search the site for the FAQ thread on 12AX7s you cited.
