    6sn7 GTB

    To my ears the Ken Rads are far too mellow. I really like the Sylvania 6SN7W or these https://www.ebay.com/itm/Tube-6N8S-6SN7-ECC32-1578-NOS-2/292914260944?hash=item44330cebd0:g:44AAAOSwmWVavyeX:rk:4:pf:0 which are the best I've heard but are quite expensive.

    Best Integrated Amp Under $2000

    The H90 is a great amplifier. The streaming and DAC are first rate. Just got a H190 myself. I'm a tube guy but the Hegel stuff get you very close to tubes with a very liquid sound and excellent dynamics.

    Identifying an EL34 tube maker

    It looks like a Japanese tube made by Matsishita .

    E-V Patrician 800 speakers - goody!

    Great post and a great find. I hope you'll enjoy these.
  18. Wow, These are soooo beutiful. Can't wait to hear your impressions.
  19. Croc, Sell your La Scala to me []. or you can try Altec 290 with 803b horns with your 2404 tweeters. It should work fine with the stock networks.

    Tube pre with phono suggestion

    Leaks have very high (125 mV) input sensitivity and most users prefer a passive preamp with these. They might work well with a Transformer based passive ( TVC).

    I need a turntable.

    You can start with this one http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=150444664286&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT
  23. If you shop wise and have patience you'd be able to find a PAS 3 and a ST-35 whithin your budget. The ST-35 is a great amplifier and sounds more lively than a stock ST-70.
  24. Mark is mostly right but there are exceptions of course. Radford and Leak amps from the 50's-60's are not overly romantic. The Marantz 8B and Mac 240 are not either. Most late 70's and early 80's amps from ARC and C-J don't sound too different than the ones from the 50's which they are based upon. ARC started the business by modifying Dynacos and copying and trying to improve the design of most vintage 12ax7 based preamps (Marantz, Dyna etc). To my ears, they sound worse than the originals. Many of the modern tube gear sound like solid state to me and cost too much so why bother anyway. For first tube setup, I'd recommend something not too expensive with upgrade potential like the Dyna pre/power or Scott integrated amps and leave the expensive stuff for collectors or to someone with more experience.
