Hey, headphone lovers in Southern California, are you going to Can Jam Socal 2019? It's coming up! I went to one up north and it was a lot of fun! Your thoughts? It's at the Irvine Marriott next weekend. My homies the The Los Angeles and Orange County Audio Society are sponsoring this event, so the gang will be there.
"Featuring over 100 leading brands in over 25,000 sq ft. of exhibition space, CanJamSoCal 2019 will showcase the latest products and innovations in headphones and personal audio electronics in all price ranges – from $50 earbuds to the world’s finest headphone audio systems at $50,000.

I'll be there on Saturday. Hope to see some of you headphone nuts!

STeVe is do special he gets extras because, well ... he’s sTeVE.
I actually went and found my spare set of tubes (mine came was an extra set, in case of problems, was going to be a review unit..)
So, my EL84's are........
A matched quartet of Sovtek, just like yours. Probably the best bet..
my 6DJ8 is a Phillips Joint Army Navy.
My four input tubes are all Yugo Ei's, three ECC83's and the VI position is an Ei ECC82 (12AU7).
Now, in the past, knowing that the VI (V ONE) position is the most crucial of all of them, and it's a 12AU7, that's the tube that you should roll first. But only after you get a handle on the sound the way it is. A Mullard will give more mids, less top, Bugle Boy type, the opposite. You know the drill, I'm sure, since you have a bunch.
I have no handle on the Tungsram ECC82 sound, sorry..
My guess is that when you get the Chinese tubes out of there, the sound will shift toward a more relaxed, balanced presentation, which might be good or bad for you..
