Have just spent 40 hours or so listening to a Tung Sol 12AU7 "black glass" tube in my Raptor amp's gain stage ...

Very very fine.

The best sound stage/imaging 12AU7 I've heard yet with this amp:

...



...

Easily worth the 50 dollar asking price.

Black glass tubes are hot, I loved my old black glass Brimar CV1988 that I ran in my MPX3.

Check the Shuguang "treasure" tubes for some nice looking glass .

I've got a "clear top" RCA 12AU7 too ... but it doesn't match the imaging of the Tung Sol "black glass" variant. The RCA, technically, might be just a bit more detailed/resolving ... but it doesn't have the imaging of the Tung Sol. The 3D staging of the black glass Tung Sol is just scary.

Yes it would, but that seemed a little too long for a name. Or at least it did too me. I'm a huge fan of Dire Straits and Mark Knopfler.
I've got pretty much all albums, including Mark's latest Get Lucky.

You know, I think we should consider an amp thread, or at least establish a headphone amp corner here in the thread (sorry Fallen, I'd help you keep tabs on the list if it got real crazy).

The idea just came to me because I purchased my next headphone amp like an hour ago.





Old school Gilmore Lite V1. Yay .

Edit - 2x yay for 1900 posts.
