Rogue Atlas Magnum Simaudio P5LE pre Harbeth P3ESR
Purchased this 12ax7 tube for my audio system. I was looking to put a bit of zing in it as it had become a bit too dull with the new components. At first, this tube sounded terrible. So I let it run for a bit, say a couple of days of listening to music, and the sound was just horrible. There was not redeeming quality at all. I guess it was not a good match for my system. It was quickly removed and I put the old JJ tube back in and all was better. I guess not all tubes are created equal. I much prefer the JJ and EH offerings. I will also be trying the Tung-Sol and Gold Lion tubes going forward. * I am going to give the tubes 2.5 stars as a friend of mine is now using the tubes and he said he likes them. So I will split the difference.
