Sounds like you may have sleep apnea.

There are other threads here with contributors such as Will who have gone into this topic at length. There are discussions about inputs, voltage regulators, outputs, rectifiers, all of which combine to create a sound that you want.

Yes, I've read them all many times. A given tube sounds differently in different amps, relatively speaking.  All the other amp sections have their own threads on this subject. So I wanted to create one for this particular amp.

Actually I don't cough when sleeping, but I do tend to snore when lying on my back, and have even farted Grin

I tried a pair of tungsram el84 from upscale audio for 75 each. The sound was dead muffled and dull. I went back to the stock tubes and haven't bothered since to roll. My opinion, upgrade interconnects and or speaker cables first.
