Default 12AU7

...get rid of those 12AU7 in the output stage , replace with 7AF7 , 7N7 , 6BX7 , 6BL7 or 6SN7 and it would look alright (only joking) . 12AU7 to me sound cack , I while ago I tried a Mullard M8136 and then a Brimar 12AU7 on a socket adapter in the 6SN7 slot of my amp . Well I sat back had a few beers and it sounded ok but a bit fuzzy but the next day , stone cold sober it sounded completely awful . The sound had a nasty synthetic 'sheen' about it . 6SN7 went back in and I haven't gone back since . Saying that I can't really knock the 12AU7 , I've sold about 400 since last summer , best selling product !

Default GOING OVERBOARD???

Hey,

Common...there's a lot worse than that...

He,he let's attack the ECC83 for a change...now,that's a linear little bugger,isn't it??

You see curves and you wouldn't have a clue what to do with them anyway...

Oink,

Damn, I LOL at that.

I noticed 7N7's comment later about the Last Chance Saloon thread on A2. The responses were really funny, and I enjoyed reading the posts, but then I've been quite vocal about my <i>personal</i> dislike of the 12__7 family. Tube DIY at A2: much better than Tubes, which has unfortunately gone the way of the Vinyl forum, ie, down the toilet.
For a really good chuckle, read njjohn on SET.
Dave Slagle: has a really good understanding on transformers, very opinionated, and as he changes his amps around a lot (apart from safety concerns) I see little wrong with the stacked MDF construction techniques. No use building a fancy box only to have the amp not fit in it next revision.
The verbal stoushes between him and Mike LeFevre (MQRacing) are entertaining and informative.

HK Audio club: waaaaaaay out there.
