So were you unable to enjoy the music for the first week or ten days when you first got your amp? Then you had to burn in not just all new tubes, but also all new caps, transformers, wires, resisters, knobs, jacks....the lot.

I have to stress that the Brimars will sound awful until they settle in. Be patient. The Russian 6V6's have a few hours on them and they may not be fully settled in but they should be when the Brimars start to make music.

Hi Will & Les!

Will, the thing is, we are probably spoiled by now and having to accept less SQ is going to take patience.  I'm just predicting my rig won't sound as nice during this new break-in horizon, as it had been after the initial one (lately, that is), although I guess I can still enjoy the music.  

I know you've warned me about those Brimars before, Les.  So I'm figuring they really must be terrible initially.  I'll use the russian 6V6's first and take advantage of their semi-settled status.  Once the whole set is broken-in, I'm going on with the Tung Sols break-in phase.

I'm also curious to see what differences come about from the EZ80's rectifiers instead of the stock EZ81's.  Same with OA2's and OD3's voltage regulators instead of the stock OA3's.

Thanks for your interest, guys.
