I am serious thinking of pushing my amp to a more dynamic level and considering a Quad Matched KT90EH tubes upgrade. Appreciate feedback from those who have experience in such setup &/or upgrade to share....

I believe your amp uses 6550, forget about the rest, just get yourself the C wing Svetlana. This is by far the best 6550 on earth!

What I believe is every type of tube they have thier own character. It is depend on you like or you don't like.
If you like bright sound JJ, Setlana is a good choice.
If you like vocal type of music you can get a try on Tung-Sol.

If you want to know more about the character of defferent type of tube.

Sorry didn't get you much advise.

A friend of mine is deep into NOS tubes. He bought a few, yes a few, tube testers from ebay to match his own tubes.

His finding so far : "Tubes with good measurement do not guarantee good sound; but tubes with poor measurement will guarantee bad sound" Smile

i think we are talking about ARC here is it ? well i wanna ask, what kind of best matching speakers has anyone had for their ARC ?

i m looking at a CA 50 2nd hand and dont know is there any idea that what kind of speakers it goes well with the ARC, at the moment sonus faber is really warm but doesnt give that punch for drums.

well + and -

so any comments?

wow it has been so long since i was looking for ARC;s

guess the law of attraction really do work, but you got to put in the effort and some how you will get what you want.

along the journey of searching for the very best sound and amplifiers, i have 2 sets of ARC's along the way.

bought the LS7 and D200 solid state ARC's and used it with the trusty old Jamo.

surprise surprise the sound on the Jamo Concert V. amazing. of course limitation of the tweeters. Frequency is i never know the specs actually.

but when the Jamo's were paired with the D200, the sound began to change. initially it was like no difference between the soundstage against the ARC's,it was pretty much much louder, but after much listening the details were slowly revealed.

then the bass was much much tighter. My favorite CD's sounded sweeter, more energy and much more enjoyable. only at some times the sound pressure is a little overwhelm and causes some fatigue.

Since then used and own the ARC's for a couple of years. I think about 3 years or so. That didnt stop there.

My dad and Me went to our regular hifi places and listened to ARC's classic 60, again, wow, this must be something.

so went on in the search for classic 60' one thing about ARC's i buy used. To own a new one is ridiculous. infact not efficient use of money.

To be continued........
