So Dan got you too?!?!
My only previous rolling was one Telefunken (which went well w/the Tele power tubes, German amp, & German 'phones & sometimes even German CD's).
Were you paying 200 bucks a tube back-in-the-day?
Have you done a metal vs. blk/br shootout?
Holland vs. UK shootout?

I'm going for the "best" European rectifier tube + the "best" pair of US pre-amp tubes.
If you have any suggestions, much appreciated.
I'm thinking (not always a good idea
) the tubes will outlive me.
As there only powering a DVD player (can you believe it! :-0 ).
Not a twenty watt amp.
What's your take on tube life for similar devices.
* as you can see, I'll become a tube seller, soon!!
It's worst than I remembered.
