I’m intrigued by the KT 150 and 170 tubes and have yet to hear them. Curious if anyone has heard them paired with Spatial X Series and if so please share.

I had an Audio Research 75 SE running a pair of X5's and it was a magical combination.

Did you swap out the Audio Research 75 SE for a different amp or integrated?  If so, just curious what caused you to swap if you liked the ARC?

I use KT150s in my PL Dialogue Premium HP Integrated. Based on multiple reviews this PL sounds very similar to the ARC. I think for me the KT150s have the best sound compared to 6CA7 or EL34 tubes but have not tried KT120 or KT77s.

Cool. How does the Dialogue compare to the Evo Series?

I have not compared the two. However, when my PL Dialogue went in to my dealer for a check, the dealer also handles ARC , they just said keep the PL Dialogue as it sounds terrific.
