    What vacuum tubes do you have in your life?

    a pair of 6021W in my CD player, and a Sylvania 6SN7w and a pair of black plate RCA 6AS7G in my headphone amp (everything else is solid state, between speakers and headphones).

    My Philco turntable/radio cabinet circa 1955 has tubes of some sort. Not inclined to dig around back there right now. But check this out:Attachment 17242Attachment 17243

    yeah, Philco sounds rad! pics!

    here is a pic of the headphone amp.

    the cd player (which is on the speaker rig) has internal tubes, so no real pics of the tubes...

    i used to like both tube and ss gear, but now i'm all about pro kit, as they are very clean sounding and efficient and hell of a lot cheaper than 'hi-fi' brands.

    6550 in my audio research integrated, el34 in my Conrad Johnson amp, el84s in my fender guitar amp. Those are the power tubes.
