    Default Psvane 12AX7

    Does anyone have any experience with these tubes? I am thinking about these for my Jolida tube DAC. They seem to get good reviews.

    Also I am looking for a suggestion for a relatively (compared to the associated equipment) inexpensive digital Coax cable to replace the Monster cable I have been using between my Squeezebox Touch and Jolida DAC>

    Thanks,

    I was in the same boat as far as a digital cable and this fits the criteria of low cost and very good performance. Blue Jeans Cable - Belden 1694A

    No experience with the PSVANE's but I can recommend RCA 12AX7 Black Plates, very nice smooth tube with a huge soundstage that shouldn't break the bank.

    The Belden is excellent, I've used it with cables 4 times it's price, and I always end up going back to the Belden for absolute neutrality.

    I use both the Psvane 12AX7 and the Blue Jeans (Belden) digital in my system with great results.

    Scott, I have an inexpensive Signal Cable Dig. Coax that I have compared to the Blue Jeans cable. I prefer the Signal http://signalcable.com/digitalcoax.html

    Both are very good cables for the money. Also have the PSVANE 12AX7s in my Jolida, great tube, getting ready to pick up a pair of 12AU7s.
