We'll if I'm going to be all OCD about this thing, I may as well do it right Smiley

Any experts on why the 2P can be noisy noisy in the SE34i.3?

A friend told me this"The 6N1 have a Mu of 28-33, where as the 6N2P are at 85-95. I don't think the tubes (6N2P) per se are noisy, they are just noisy (mismatched) for the Decware amp. "

But Steve Decard prefers them as do I so I'm struggling with them the word "mismatched."  

Steve did you design the amp for the 6N2P or discover later that you liked them, and finding ones that fit are just a consequence of luck?

Would you explain.  Or would someone. pls explain.

I never found them noisy.  Just clipped a lot sooner (more gain).

Anyway, I think the owners manual says to be sure to get the military grade, not the run of the mill.  I would imagine the run of the mill are the noisy ones.

+1 for the  cryoed 6N2P-EV... huge  difference from 6N1P-EV- bigger stage, more volume- incredible... still dead quiet through HE-500's via headphone jack. AEG-Telefunken EL34's, Rogers 5AR4- thanks JEF!!

I would also suggest running the DAC wide open, avoid it's volume control, and add a Tortuga Audio LDR. The new update is out and I know folks have used every other type (Lightspeed, Bent TAP) and this is a game-changer device.

I run mine before my Rachel and have an Auralic Vega at volume 100. Sublime.

i do agree on the 5U4. I use the big EML and love it.
