So I have been modding my SP-9 octal. First I modded it to run 6SN7's with CCS's, much better! Then I discovered how good NOS Sylvania tall chrome domes sound, wow! Pretty happy with that but the highs were still just a bit gritty compared to the SP-14. Yesterday, I pulled the 680pf Wima's out of the tone control
and put in Diel polyestyrene/foil caps, sweet! I can never leave well enough alone though, so this morning, I put in LED bias on the gain stages along with the CCS, ahhh, even better! Bypassed the input caps also, just have to make sure there is no DC in any of my sources, shouldn't be a problem. Listening to Nora Jones vinyl pressed by Quality Record Pressings right now, she is right in the room!! Maybe I can have my cake and eat it too as they say?
