    Picked up another rectifier tube, as lessons learned, always good to have a spare! :)

    While slightly off topic, here is a shot I took of a 5Y3GT rectifier at work. It was in a DIY Hagerman Coronet 2 phono pre I built for a friend. It was upside down as I was checking voltages. Never looked at one like that before...

    Yes I did. I made an offer in line with what I paid on ebay and he accepted it. I really like the sound of the pope tubes, really like.

    I am now just one short.

    Congratulations on your latest acquisition!

    AFAIK, you don’t need to run a full complement of Popes in all 8 or even 6 of the positions

    If you’re using XLR out of the Cary, just put the premium tubes in position #3 & 6

    If you’re using RCA, premium tubes go in position #1, 2, 4 and 5


    I don’t have cans yet, so I relegate EH tubes to #7 & 8

    Right now I am using xlr and have the tubes as you suggested. I also have other gear so I will fill all 6 sockets. I don't use the headphone section. Thank you

    I have a total of 6 popes
    Now I need to hoard more for the future
