For my phono pre I tried three different tubes, purchased on this same site. The Siemens, RT 085 and RT005, I prefer the last two. RT 005 is very musical, warm, neutral, detailed with excellent instrumental separation in a bit of low in less, as soon as I tried my reaction was ooohhh.L 'rt 085 is a little bit more complete than the rt005, with a little more bass, but less musical. their advice and for timely shipments.

This is my first experience with TAD tubes, i was a bit reluctant, but i decided to take a leap of faith. The sound coming from this tube is very clean, precise, it's somewhere between warm and neutral (leaning more towards neutral), but very musical nontheless at least to my ears, at the same time very dynamic and snappy. It will reward you with a very big sound field, lots of air (be aware this is not a fat sounding tube, instead it has a very laid back presentation), very tight bass, not punchy, just fine sounding. The decay of each note is marvelous. Voices sound quite natural. The background is very quiet, chords from instruments such as guitars don't sound ideal, i think they sound a bit synthetic (but this is only if pay very very close attention). Overall this tube sounds very sophisticated, it draws in. It may sound bright in the beginning, but give it some time, i noticed the bass developed in terms of impact after the first 8 hours of listening.

Purchase with confidence!

My tiny Bravo Audio V2 headphone amp used to be wuuut with the bundled no-name valve. Now it's WUUUUT!

This valve brings out so much clarity and detail in music!
