HD2 Headphone amp: NOS Tube Recommendation anyone?
« on: 23 May 2007, 03:33 pm »
Hi,

I just ordered HD2 Mapletree Headphone amp from Dr. Peppard. He has been very helpful and has recommended the following:
NOS (e.g. GE 5-star) 5751 and a NOS 12BH7A (e.g. RCA)

I was wondering if anyone else has any other recommendations for NOS tubes for HD2 . I could possibly order more to try different sounds.
I'll be using AKG701 headphones and iMod (lossless) as source.

Incidentally I listened to the Earmax Anniversary edition head amp with my AKG701 and they brought them to life.

Thanks
Sunil.

Well I ended up ordering  GE 5-star 5751 and an RCA 12BH7A from Andy http://vintagetubeservices.com/ as recommended by topround and others. Super service
