jriggy,

glad you got a hold of this, let us know what your thoughts are once you've had a change to listen to the stock tube and then to this tube.

I almost bought this yesterday but decided since I just bought 4 different types to play with I could wait for another day.

Wisnon, keep up the good finds. I had a small G2G on Sunday and we did do a very quick swap, not really a serious listen so all I can say is we did hear a difference between the tubes we tried.

I'm listening to one of these right now. Great tube. I've come full circle with it as I've loved it in my Melody integrated when I had a stock Atlantic. After getting superclocks and tube rectification for my Atlantic I thought it was too much of a good thing so to speak. I've got my system in a different room now and have made some adjustments in other areas and this tube just rocks now. I usually get it from Taiwan for about $50 so this is good to see one from the U.K.

Fuuuuuuuuudge (only I didn’t say fudge)... Just saw this post... mine from VivaTubes just arrived today. Crap. And to top it off, I was wiping dust off the tube and the base shifted/turned. So the base turns back and forth on the glass (or vice versa) 1/8 of an inch or so. Maybe they’ll take a return... I can’t test it yet, Atlantic has not shipped yet.
