Can someone tell me if the Mesh Tube Covers for the L2iSE are tall enough and would work with the DHT Lio? Thanks

Well, not having both units on hand, I can tell you that they are certainly tall enough, but might be too wide to get down into the LIO.  I'll measure the mesh tube covers in the AM and post.  Then you can see if it would work.

I bet you can find a "Faraday Cage" at Home Depot that would work without wasting too much time.

Elrog ER50 *not* the same as Elrog 300B

Far from it. The ER50 is actually a 7V tube but runs perfectly off Vinnie's 5V setting. As I said elsewhere, its sound is more like a 'super' 45 so faster, more lit up and energetic than all the 300B I have or have heard. The Takatsuki 300B was the quickest most airy and resolved 300B I tried but I no longer had it when the ER50 arrived so I could never compare the two directly. The closest thing to the Elrog ER50 I have is a WE VT52.

This would be a question for Vinnie, because in the L2 series, the metal plate that the the tube covers rest on is ‘active’ somehow; it’s connected to the ground or something like that, which is what provides the covers their active usefulness. So I’m unsure if the tube covers, just sitting on the top cover of LIO, would do what they do in an L2.

Hi bg1968,

A couple of years ago, I did asked Vinnie on the Mesh Tube Covers and he replied:

"Those mesh covers will not work with DHT PRE.  They are designed so the bottom edge is conductive, and touches a metal disc that is mounted
around the tube socket.  That disc is connected to AC GND, so the noise does not go to the tube.

LIO does not have this type of AC GND connection (as the input to LIO is DC), so it will not be as effective.  And the LIO top cover is anodized aluminum, so
it is not electrically conductive because the thin layer of anodize is an insulator."

I hope these help.

Terence

Hello, I'm Rick & new to the Circle. I have a LIO integrated amp. At Vinnie's recommendation, I've tried the Mullard CV2492 & the MiniWatt Dario E188CC. I find the Mullards too warm & the MiniWatt much better on the top end, more detail, more contrast & more punch. My favorite tube so far. Has anyone else had experience with tubes they would recommend for the LIO?

I have used the Genalex Gold Lion 6922's in mine but my favorite now is the green label Amperex 7308's.The Gold Lions with gold pins are an easy find and sold in lots of places. It is a great all around tube and I still have 4 of them in my Manley Chinook phono stage.The Amperex 7308's green labels with gold pins are around as well. A bit warmer than the Genalex but just as detailed.

I'm all about trying these tubes now!  Variety is the spice of life.  Thanks for the recommendation.  :guitar: :guitar: :guitar:

Should the 6922 tube talk be moved to the LIO thread? This is the DHT tube talk thread. 6922 type is not a 4 pin DHT..
