Smile recommended pre and power tubes for 8200

curious if you have other suggestions worth trying for my elekit 8200

right now i have sylvania 5814s with the KT66; so far i must say that the

goldlion 12au7 and kt66 is my favorite combo, good base and nice warm sound

drivers
gold lion 12AU7
philips holland ecc82
ge holland ecc82
tungsol 6189
baldwin clear top 12AU7
Sylvania JAN 5963
1951 RCA 12AU7 black plate

powertubes
gold lion KT66 KT77 and KT88
tungsol EL84s
tungsol 7581
tungsol 6L6GCSTRs
electro harmonix 6L6GC



primary music (80% of time ) is electronic - acid jazz, house, deep house, trance, along with classical music (piano concertos mostly), vocal jazz, phish, the dead and along with many other types of music (20% of time )depending on my mood!

for headphones i have grado 80SR80e which are ok, but since i think there may be better out there just picked up some sennheiser 6xx and akg7xx to try out

is there anything im missing?

Thanks for the post & very good information to know what your favourite combo is among those you've tried. Unfortunately I don't have anything to add as i don't experiment much with rolling (a bit fearful of the potential spending habit it might lead to haha), however I've been perfectly happy just using the stock 6L6EH with RCA clear top side getter 12AU7 drivers. I might branch out and try your recommended combo - thx for the tip.

For the preamp tubes I'm a huge fan of the JJ ECC802S (on my second pair after one of the first pair developed a slight hiss audible only during headphone use), although the regular JJ ECC82 is no slouch either.

For power tubes I've tried both the JJ 6L6GC and the JJ KT88 and while both are great tubes, the 6L6GC pairs better with the ECC802S.

I found the most difference with changing the pre-amp tubes

I'm currently using 12AU7 from Syvania/Baldwin and Tung-Sol 7581A

Dude, you have it covered, plug it in, crank it up, and enjoy the great music, LOL.
