Tubes / Re: Valve operating points for best sound
« Last post by stevenvalve on February 12, 2018, 12:26:46 AM »
Open question regarding 6J5's.  Does anyone have a set of recommended operating points for these valves?  I have the data sheet, but nothing beats actual setups.  They are being used as part of a phono amp with ecc88's upfront and 300B's downstream.

I have some tasty 6J5s here rare brown base. Half of a 6SN7. I find with most tubes there is no real set parameter, usually is just trial and error, and you are right there is a sweet spot. That is why a variable resistor is handy.

I had a 4 Jupiter Copper foil caps laying around so i put them to good use, This leak just did not quite cut it against the other leak, so i installed 4 of these caps and the improvement is substantial. Now it is close, but as i said before its no longer a cheap rebuild.
Whats cheap in audio? ;)
i have no duelunds  :P

Hmmm, well they should not sound amazing at all - they should be transparent to the signal passing though them  ;D :D ;) :)
If the signal passing through them is amazing then it must be amazing  ;)

KL makes some great kit, especially like his RCA connectors.

I bet those banana plugs sound great.

I am using bare Auditorium 23 wire connected directly to the driver, though I am about to move to 16ga Duelund tinned copper. I like that stuff a lot.

I have tried similar products before and they do work, but i got tired of the cleaning everything i find just the process of removing and then reconnecting leads as we try bits, tends to work in reconnecting the contacts.

Just thought that I should let you know, although I haven't tried this, but it looks fully quantum, https://forum.audiogon.com/discussions/new-tweak-its-fantastic. From what I have read, so far, I would describe the effects as quite amazing and fully quantum or fully sick.
