    Good deal Tracy, congrats! Sorry I didn't vote the last few days. I had to come home for medical reasons and I have trouble logging on to Facebook with my home computer for some reason. I can't wait to here what you think of the new tubes and how they compare to the Treasures. Btw, what's the verdict on the Psvane 6CA7s?

    In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

    The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to good analogue reproduction.

    Way cool.
    BTW, that Prima Luna FB page is kind of neat. Interesting bunch on there, too.

    And Treitz, is that fat lady singing or .... that is a lady, right ?

    That was one of the things PrimaLuna requested as well. Not a lot out there on EAT KT88s, I hope this is one of those cases where the sound quality equals the cost.

    What sort of life expectancy can one expect out of a set of tubes like these ? A lot depends on how they're used, but what would be a reasonable expectation ?

    I have no idea, hopefully several 1000 hours.

    Looks like they have shipped.
