    New VTA ST-70

    Actually no they are never 100% out of the circuit they always add a resistive path to ground...

    This Triode/Pentode crap with Bob Latino and others just drives me crazy.... the amp does not operate in Pentode mode. It operates Ultra Linear which is more similar to Triode than Pentode. I have no clue why Bob calls it Triode/Pentode switch.

    Thoughts on Jolida 302A

    Kevin deal is right just about everything in the Jolida is entry level quality.... so is the price.... thing is Primaluna is only marginal step up. What I love is he basically calls the Jolida a POS and but he'll sell you it LOL!
  7. Stop messing around and get something that will really sound good!

    I hope you mean 7308. A Primo 6DJ8 will sound a little better than a 6H30 I don't believe Mark (juicy Music) or I ever said it wouldn't. The thing is the headache and expense in finding a quiet primo choice 6DJ8 is not a pleasant undertaking for everyone. I have about 16 nice choice vintage 6DJ8 that I used to use in my BBX's and they are all noisy a pair really nice PQ Phillips 7308 gold pins that became noisy on me after multiple years of heavy use... its a damn shame. I'm a cheap bastard at heart and often run my gear 16 hours a day I refuse to plop down hundreds of dollars on a tube I'm going to use like that. So I use the 6H30..sound almost as good and is always quiet for $30. Nope don''t believe in those 70's and 80's super tubes either... I own 2 of them and they don't sound any different then the modern $30 sovtek or $32 EH gold pin.
