Or tube confusion....
I wish there was a forum were I could find people that have Cary V12`s
I have been wanting to retube the `ol V12 for sometime now, but I`m not sure what to do...
I remember awhile back , TroyD was telling me that Tung-sol 6550`s were the way to go....and I have been looking into it, but Tung-sol does not make EL84`s or 6922`s.
So waht do I do?
The V12 uses 12ea KT-88/6550, 2ea EL84`s and 2ea 6922`s
The Cary Pre Amp uses 4ea 6sn7`s
The Jolida CDP use 2ea 12ax7`s
That`s alot of different tubes !!
I would think that if I was to match all the tubes from the same maker, that it would sound better/more uniform....right?
With all the different tubes in the mix, the combinations are staggaring if you mix brands and/or types.
I would like to use Tung-Sol 6550`s , but what brand/type of 6922`s and EL84`s would be the ones to match them ?
I guy could go broke trying to find the "right combo"....and still not find it !!
I am using SED Winged EL34`s and JJ EL84/6922`s and while it sounds really good, I get much more power from the KT88/6550 tubes..
