Jays CD2- Mk3 CDT vrs CEC-TL5 CDT
Great thread! Always good to know the features in comparison. So, which CD transport has the most realistic sound?  Most organic bass, extended highs etc. I had heard (anecdotally, of course) that the CEC TL5 is fuller sounding, but not as dyna... 
Any expereince with Coincident Frankenstein II Amp
Thanks to all! 
Re Tubing Audio Research VT200
Hi...your better off with the new old stock tubes - at least for your drivers - 6922 tubes.I had a 200 and I liked the 6550 arc stuff - given the prices of the vintage stuff - but the 6922 tubes really made the amp sing! Changed its character a bi... 
Supratek Cortese Phono Tubes Help
You can do alot better than Phillips in the phono stage. The Sylvania VT231 are reasonably priced at $100 a pair, the Sylvania WGTA are dynamite at $119 a pair, and the Russian 1578 may be the best tube for 6SN7 ever made at $249 a matched pair.Th... 
12AT7 tube
Try the Sylvania gold brand 6201 tubes...smooth, with great bandwidth. Best inner detail that I have heard in a 6201. The valvo is also one of the best...amsks a bit of detail, but among the top three IMHO. 
Help with SET amplifier?
Don Allen has a cult following and does build some very nice tube gear. 
Best preamp for atma sphere m60 under $3000 used?
Best preamp is usually no preamp:>Irrespective of the budget, try the Placette passive. The closest to an attenuator without coloring the signal.No relationship to the vendor! 
Lack in harmonic richness
All good feedback! As a contrarian, and tube guy, I will take a different path. What 12ax7 tubes do you use in your DAC? Perhaps tube rolling to a very harmonically rich tube like the RCA 5751 would provide you with the ambiance that you seek?Good... 
Pinched Waist 7062/E180CC
The rarity can dictate the price...but these are not in the demand that the pinched waist 7308 tubes command. $50 for NOS is in line...but one could charge as high as $100. Get NOS if you can...the testing out as good usually means a tube that is ... 
Silverline Audio La Folia Loudspeakers, any good?
Huge speakers...but very musical and efficent. Works best with an amp with good current, not necessarily watts.Here are some reviews:http://www.silverlineaudio.com/modules.php?op=modload&name=News&file=article&sid=38Disclaimer: I sell ... 
Pinched Waist 7062/E180CC
Your right.These tubes were never produced in mass, and finding them is quite tough...perhaps impossible.I did find one guy that has them :http://www.elexs.com/4AudioA1.htmMy compliments,PaulDisclaimer: I sell tubes on Audiogon 
Cary Audio SLP 05 PreampWhat tubes are you using?
Congratulations on owning a great preamp. The Sylvania short bottle 6SN7W are great tubes. I would also try the 1578 Russian 6SN7 tubes to add more air and space between instruments...an amazing sounding tube.Disclaimer: I do sell tubes on Audiogon. 
6SN7 Tung Sol Reissue Mullard 12AX7 any comments?
In a neutral system, the Tung Sol re-issue is a honky sounding tube...nothing smooth or natural about it. For a bit more, you can get into NOS Sylvania VT231 tubes...smooth and extended. Good stuff!
