I'll try to throw them back in some time soon, now that the system is settled,  and let ya know what I hear.

Has anyone used Herbie's tube dampers or other tube dampers on the DHT tubes? If so, can you report your findings? Thanks!

Yes, I use them.

They work as well as they did for me previously with signal tubes (6922, 6SN7, 12AU7) or power tubes (6AS7, EL34, or 845):

-  They cleaned up the sound up and down the spectrum
-  Improved detail, imaging, and soundstage
-  Provided a more focused, yet musical presence

No, they won't fundamentally change what the LIO DHT tubes are, but they will help them be all they can be.

Highly recommended.

Hey George,

Do you have one set that has been fitting all the tubes you've tried?

Two sets.

One set fits stock 2A3.

Other fits SV-811 and the EML 2A3 mesh plate.

Anyone have a suggestion on a good "meaty" tube for Rock and Roll?

I just installed a pair of Svetlana SV-811's. They sure make a great night light running at 5v!

I'm pretty new to tube rolling.  Is the SV811 the same as the SV811-10  like this one http://www.nosvacuumtubes.net/product/svetlana-sv811-10/
Thanks!

 Yes, it is.  You could check parts express. I recently bought a matched pair of  sv811-10's for $149.38 shipped.  The only draw back is the wait.
They have to order it from somewhere else.  It could be about 3 weeks.

Correct, and I no longer have them for sale. 

Thanks, coldfogey, for your post.

I bought mine from Parts Express too. It was about a 2 week wait for me.

Hi,

I saw that Vinnie was using KR Audio PX4 tubes at AXPONA with great results.
Also saw some talk about Psvane WE 101D for the LIO.
Does anyone have experience with these tubes in the LIO DHT?

I settled on the EML 2A3 mesh (more refined highs than the stock tubes) and wonder how the KR PX4 or Psavane WE101D tubes compare.
Also tried the SV811-10 but they were just too dense in my system, not enough air and sparkle...

Thank you!

I heard the  KR Audio PX4 at Axpona and was impressed. So when I came home from Chicago I bought some. Will get here in a few days. Will report back on how they sound in my system.

I couldn't resist ordering a set of the KR PX-4 tubes after reading all of the positive comments.  Driving Harbeth Super HL5+ with the LIO Integrated Amp, I've been using Gold Lion PX300B, which I've enjoyed very much up to this point.  However they're somewhat overly smooth and the last bit of extension on the high end was missing.  Received the PX-4's today and wow - what a difference, even right out of the box.  The top end has opened up considerably, as has the sound stage.  The dynamics seems to have increased considerably as well.  There's more life in the music.  All with no harshness. I can't wait to hear what happens once these tubes have time to burn in.  Despite the cost I'm very pleased.
