Well, I haven't gotten anything new in a couple of months (last thing was a Melos preamp for the SDA CRS+), so today I took the plunge and in my search to add tubes to another rig that I have I ordered one:
Mu-Vista tubes with an estimated life of 100,000 hrs (save the calculator.. that's eleven years always on folks.) Should be interesting. Will give it a run with my Rotel CDP vs. the modified Jolida JD100 CDP that I've had for about 10 months now.
If this thing works then I can't think of an easier way to get into tubes.
Tubes... just gotta have them.
