From whence does Sound Stage come?
But when it’s your own stuff, it is easy for anxiety or frustration to overcome one’s senses.                                           YEP!                   Been there, done that, got the T-shirt!

           Psych was my Minor for a few years.                    You're FAR from alone! ie:  https://study.com/learn/lesson/information-overload-overview-examples.html                          Happy listening!

@oldrooney -       Remember this?   Be certain all the drivers in your left channel's speaker system are functional.      Of course: functional and functioning are two different aspects, but...                            Glad you got everyth... 
Driver Tubes 6922
     btw:  I've had 6SN7GT, Tung-Sol round plates, that got noisy in the same way you've mentioned, do to material flaking and getting in their grids.      GENTLY tapping their pins (vertically) on a table cleared them up nicely.      Never need...

@tonydennison-                    Should you not get an immediate response:      If I'm not mistaken, Brent Jessee's on vacation/closed until Sept 5.             Rest assured: he'll treat you very fairly, whatever the issue.   
Lush and Romantic Tube Amps
What I learned along the way is that NOS rectifier and driver tubes are vastly superior to current production versions.                                                   Fact!  
Lush and Romantic Tube Amps
@papafrgog ​​​& @vthokie83-       While I totally agree with your assessments, regarding rolling amp valves; I'll bet the OP could save a passel of $$ (not to mention: possible sensitivity/efficiency matching headaches), were he to roll some ... 
3-Dimensional Soundstage
btw:       The tests that I referenced are scientifically designed to eliminate all variables, as far as the source/recording.       If your system reproduces the effects, as recorded and announced/described prior to play; your system will repro... 
3-Dimensional Soundstage
     What edcyn, williewonka and erik_squires said, +1 each.      Symmetry of your overall system (channel balance, both electronic and room acoustic), quality of components, purity of signal transfer (there are those cables, again) and time alig... 
Why Do Cables Matter?
     No one can tell you whether/how your system, room and/or ears will respond to some new addition.   There are simply TOO MANY VARIABLES.      LIKEWISE: no one can possibly know whether a new addition (ie: some kind of disc, cr... 
Why Do Cables Matter?
Is there some magical difference that occurs to the electricity after it comes out of the wall?    Maybe that's the "special" electricity.  All the miles of electricity before the wall outlet doesn't matter.  We'll fix it at that last six feet b...

      The use of NOS British* tubes for input and driver/splitter positions, warmed things up considerably, for every customer that asked, back in the day.        Amp's manufacturer didn't matter.        Nor: whether octal or nine pin miniature ... 
I used to think pricey interconnects were snake oil...
       The adherents of the Naysayer Church will never accept that there exists a multitude of variables, when an accurate simulacrum of performers and their performance in a particular venue, is the desire/goal.         If their result differs f...

                WELL: the Cargo Cult's building another runway.                                          Time for a rewind: Cargo cult science is a pseudoscientific method of research that favors evidence that confirms an assumed hypothesis. I...

Anyone needing a rationale for experimenting with new cables in their system and/or feeling dissuaded by the Church of Denyin'tology's antiquated electrical doctrines: take heart!         Many new electrical facts have been established in the pas...
