Are those capacitor bottoms with wires exiting from black blobs belonging to Obbligato film in oil cans?

Tubes can be very synergistic between them sometimes. Just keep what you like best.

I had listened to very good #26 config with trafo pot and 2 SSHV2, Rod on cathodes, trafo out, the works, at VG's through his nice big horn speakers. It gives that golden tone. Although I could easily say it was a form of DHT coloration when he sent me files directly from vinyl riaa pre or through 26 also that I checked on headphones, in the listening room's acoustic space it was very engaging.

Just curious, do you have a slight preference for your 6V6 preamp over the 26?

I did not have the opportunity to listen to them A/B in the same system. If I am grasping it right the 6V6 one has more fleshed out and neutral tone, the #26 has that illusive DHT touch of golden halo open mid-highs.

Someone has to use same TVC, regs, etc. to be fair and listen in the same system of course. The 6V6 can get you to very good level cheaper with less problems to solve and less subsystems is one sure thing. A TKD, or Cosmo 50-100K, 100 Ohm good grid stopper, 7.5K Mills load, 300V clean B+, good capacitor output, and you are there.

I will do a look because all people said #26 are very microphonics.

6V6 can also be enough. Both need anti vibration mounting.
