Default Anyone ever try 6C33C SE with Aikido drive?

Any one ever try using Aikido drive 6C33C SE?
I'm wondering if this is suitably matched and whether if they will sound 'thin' due to the 12AX7.

Any advice? Thanks.

I have built several aikidos as preamp, headphone amp and as driver in hybrid amps. All I can say is, that aikido preamp sounds very clean, dynamic, definately not thin. You can use whatever tube you want in aikido to suit your personal sound preference. Also you can play with cathode resistors to tailor the sound.

Donīt know what you mean by "suitably matched", but aikido should drive single-ended 6C33C without problem.

have you tried the mosfet version?
had a shootout today between my moskido a solid state with irfp fets and a kt88pp and kt88pp*2 biamped on quadral aurum speakers with a dynaco pre.

the moskido demolished them on everything.
tight bass, great separation dynamic detailed and zero listening fatigue, in fact very pleasing to listen to even at very loud volume.

Ofcourse! I have build two moskidos, One older which is cap-coupled and newer one DC coupled, both amazing amps, but they make lot of heat .
