So I have a McIntoch 2102 that has the stock tubes .
They are getting tired.
(4) 12AX7: inputs and phase inverters
(4) 12AT7: voltage amp and drivers
(8) KT88 or 6550: outputs

I am looking for some suggestions on replacing all of the above.
Recommendations welcome. PSVane, Gold Lion???

My set up is pure Analog
SP10MkII with EPA100 arm and Cadenza Black.
Zesto Andros 1.2 Phono
Mac C220 pre and MA2102 amp.
15 inch Tannoy Monitor Golds.

This will take care of your 12ax7, and give two spares, http://www.canuckaudiomart.com/details/ ... ax7-tubes/
of course you can go crazy with the NOS tubes too

Dan001 is selling some 12at7(test as new and black plates) from Sylvania that sound beautiful in my VTL 5.5 and I would buy brand new gold lion kt88 from the tube store in Hamilton

Hope that helps

peace

I really like the Gold Lions I've tried of the new offerings I've used, just my preference
