Thanks Lon,

Sorry to hear your taking a break. HockessinKid took a break a while ago and hasn't been back. His room was set up similarly to mine. Always liked his input on subjects.

Thanks for your impressions of the Cryotone 6SN7. Given the price it would need to preform miracles. Not lacking on 6SN7 tubes, maybe down the road I may give them a try.

Good luck Lon and thanks!

CA James responded:

Not a preamp, the SE84UFO amp.

I wonder if you think there might be 6CG7 benefits, along the lines you mentioned in your amp, placement in CSP preamp.  I am pleased with my 6SN7s in my CSP 2+ but had not heard of the 6CG7 tube until your post.

Thanks.

I'm never* going to discourage anyone from trying tubes.

* My lawyers insist on disclaimers: so long as they are electrically compatible, and they are NOT Philips ECG branded. Run, don't walk away from any of these. FWIW, JMO, YMMV &C.

Got it. Cool

Being a relative newcomer at tube swapping, I think the exploration is   "electrically compatible."   Results to be determined.

One more FYI Re: the 6CG7. There is also the 8 volt version, the 8CG7. I bought a grab bag of them for less than a buck a tube and they work great and sound great as well. They aren't as common as the 6 volt variety, but they typically don't cost very much.
