I got the Dodd I picked up off Audiogon (with ND13's help, thanx again!!)
and some 6922 tubes (JAN I think) from unc2701 (Thanx to you too)
It is a significant improvement over the Radii I was using, not that I didnt like that unit, it served me well.
The Dodd is definitly more detailed across the board. The bass responce seems very slightly diminished, and a skosh more warmth would be nice, but I'm assuming these little issues will be rectified with some tube rolling. It can also be my basement, as I said before, I definitly have listening environment issues I will have to address to get to the next level.
Oddly enough, this thing seems to make my amp work harder. more gain perhaps? the power meters on my Carver dance around like hell when I push them, where the Radii seemed to struggle to get higher volumes. Basically, with the Dodd, I have good sound at any volume level I choose, up to, and well beyond, my volume comfort level. its just clean and effortless.
so now, just as I asked with my Jolida, I'm hoping to get tube suggestions from the more learned amongst us, especially Dodd owners.
