HK,

Good to see you around. Yeah I gave up on the stock power tubes after two weeks. Running this set-up for the next month easily. It gives me a chance to paly around with preamp. Thank you

Nigel,

Once this amp settles I plan on exploring the 6SL7s more. Interested to try out the balanced and matched Quad 6SL7s in the Torri. Had a lot of good luck with qaud new production 6SN7s from Vivatubes. My preamp benefits from matched quads. Thinking the vintage Russian 6SL7s +5C3S rectifiers might make some crazy wild sounds. I'll return your offer when I find a good combo.

Have a Great Day!

Joseph

HK,

Read your Gold Lion KT77 tubes only lasted 7 months. Do you remember were you bought them? If you don't mind me asking.

Bought the quad from Vacuum Tube Values. Never had a problem with other tubes I purchased from them.

I've gone through 2 quads of GL KT77s. both lasted around 6 months. Guessing around 2,000 hours. No catastrophic failure. Sound gets softer.

2K hours sounds better than 6 months. Thanks for  the info, going to write that down in the note book.

When I had ordered my Torri, it was still an MKIV and tube choice was present on the order page. I had selected KT66.

When the switch to MKV happened, the tube choice disappeared.  I assume the amp will ship with EL34s??

I would also imagine that if you do want a different option, you'd just call Sarah?

The Ukraine war and other global concerns have impacted current production tube choices and availability; I think the list of tubes being removed may be due to a question of what is and will be available and when. An inquiry to Sarah would probably produce the best answer or information.

Thanks Lon, that is often the best course of action.  "In Sarah we trust".
