TUBES TUBES TUBES / Re: 12at7a recommendations
« on: March 10, 2018, 05:03:53 PM »
Whether rolling the 12AT7s will make a discernible difference in how the amp sounds is dependent on the circuit.  Nice thing about this tube is vintage ones won't set you back a ton of money.   My favorite pair are Sylvania black plates like these:

Probably a capacitor failed.

Ron's listening room is what made me realize the room is 80-90% of the sonic equation.  It inspired me to build a golden rule listening room when we moved to MS.  After acoustically treating it from GIK and setting up the speakers using some guys recommendations (forget his name, bought the book and DVD), I'm amazed at what a $1500 pair of speakers can sound like when paired with a sychronistic amp, preamp and decent DA + digital source.  I've probably got $5500 total invested in this audio system, bought a piece at a time over many years.   Add another $1500 for stereo subs and $200 for miniDSP HD as icing on the bass cake.  Total invested $7200.

Give me a great room acoustics-wise and mid-fi speakers over expensive speakers and a room with poor acoustics any day.

So is the room they are in, at least the room Ron had them in when I heard them.

You can monitor and adjust the time/temp from your phone.  I've never found it very useful though.

They certainly are not audio friendly most times.
