Interesting choices Ed...
Thanks for the links...the RCA tubes eb seller doesn`t appear
when I type in RCA 5u4, so I guess their are many such sellers.
I nearly went for a pair of the slightly used ones but have a couple
months to make a purchase. I`ve saved his page anyway.
Must be fun when you have multiple decware amps to switch the
recs around.
Ps. I did a check and the 5AR4 will sub the 5u4
so......thats - 5u4..5Y3GT...5R4GY...274B...5AR4...
This is all relatively new to me...it`s like learning a new language.  8-)

Marky: new language for me also Wink ..but oly in positive way.
I allways try to find best components to my amp combinations, and after that if few of tubes(or any parts) are near to eachother I pick the best loking. For me I think also the appearance affects how you "hear" the sound.
Now I change Psvane KT88 tubes to Fuller EL34G and try to burn them in. So I can give feedback later...

Kind of agree on the asthetic visuals = enhancing.
The ps vane you ordered is a looker.
I`d love to have similar base decor
on a quad of el34`s....and they`re out
there as well as the more staid ones.

Looking round the back of a tube to see
the decals....oh the pain... Smiley

EdGuy, I watched your video and noticed a huge problem with your system. The aluminum chair from Restoration Hardware will compleatly ruin the sound of your stereo. Trust me, the best thing you can do is pack the chair up and send it to me for distruction. I will make sure that it won't cause you any more harm.

Don't worry, stereo sound is perfect Wink and I moved my speakers on my table, for better 3D sound. I think I'm gettin warmest sound anyone ever heard, thanks to torii, advent and Fuller EL34G.

Kind of a paradox.
The begining of the record track reminded me of
Joy Division..and the last thing they wanted was to
make you feel warm. Beauty in suffering.
Long time ago now, but I still spin the old `Atmosphere`
and `closer` as well as the double live album...
Even now, to appreciate the music you feel a little cold.
We lost a good`n there.
