Tubes / Valve operating points for best sound
« Last post by vitavoxdude on February 11, 2018, 08:12:17 PM »
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 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? ;)

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.

Cables / New Tweak --- Its Fantastic

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.

Just thought that I should let you know of my experience with the https://kleinnovations.com/kle-innovations-klei-products/klei-harmony-banana/klei-classic-harmony-banana/.  I have been using these as adapters, attach to the existing bananas, and they sound great. Just better sound, timbre, PRaF, etc across the audio range.

Others have indicated exceptional results with them also, on these threads https://forum.audiogon.com/discussions/how-much-difference-could-a-simple-banana-plug-make and https://forum.audiogon.com/discussions/binding-post-jumpers-new-product. From posts I have read they seem to go very well with dueland wire and helix wire.

Would love to know your thoughts?
