    He was actually trying to be helpful and point you in the right direction. I am treitz3 and I am on the fence right now about selling mine or using it for another rig.

    Seeing as how you are a new member and apparently lack the to ability communicate in a cordial manner? No matter what, I won't be selling my mint condition Jolida JD-100 with some unobtainable tubes, spare tubes and both black and silver faceplates to you sir.

    So, the OP actually emailed me 3 times. 3 TIMES!!! Here is his first email to me....his email addy and name have been omitted but I think what we have here is a failure to communicate in a normal fashion.

    Tom -

    Your way of posting and offering this item I find somewhat strange and different to say the lest.

    As far as your so-called-rare tubes. Yes, good quality 1950, 1960 & 1970 vintage era tube supply is getting harder to acquire and locate.

    I was able to finally get your last reply off of Polk.

    Keep your CD player for all I care.

    Sell it to whom every you wish.

    As for the tubes.

    I've been collecting audio vacuum tubes since I was ten (10) years old.

    I have approximately 10,000!

    I am also very well respected within the Audiophile community.

    Those commenting on Polk seem to be very fragile individuals' to say the least including yourself.

    All I gotta say is that for a "Very Well Respected" member of the audiophile community? He sure does have a weird way of introducing himself to this community. Respect is earned, not "given". My respect for him was lost when he basically attacked one of my very good friends (personally, professionally and online) after he tried to help the OP with this comeback...

    This response is supposed to relay confidence in us that you are a "very well respected" member of the audiophile community? I don't think so, Scooter.

    Well respected yet unfamiliar with how to post in the correct thread, yet can create a NEW thread alluding to a player for sale....

    He did get one thing correct ONE, there's some thin skinned people.... everywhere today. Those in that thread were not.

    10,000 tubes okay okay you win! You're the most powerful elf

    What a waste really. What can one person even do with 10k tubes? And you can't take them with you so he better figure it out soon.

    Apparently, having 10,000 doesn't help.

    What does one do when you need a 6HR6 vacuum tube for the tuner section of a Fisher 500C Receiver and one can not be found and there seems to be no interchange? If anyone has an answer, please advise. .......

    6AU6 cheap and plentiful is a sub. 6HR6 is expensive even here at around $18.00 each.

    Tom Bavis mentioned 6BA6 will work with lower gain.

    So there is "some" latitude, might not be perfect but when it's "usable" might give it a try.
