NO B.S. HERE! FIRST OF ALL, YOU GOT TO CHANGE OUT THE STOCKED 12AY7 / 6072A RUSSIAN MADE TUBE. THEN INSTALL A JAN PHILIPS 5751 (got mine at tubedepot.com). THE DIFFERENCE IN SOUND QUALITY IS 200%! TOTALLY AWSOME WARMTH, VERY TIGHT LOWS, FREQUENCIES FROM MID TO HIGH ARE BEAUTIFULLY CRISP, THICK, AND SMOOTH! TOTALLY NO BRITTLENESS HERE! I HAD A CHANCE TO HEAR AN AKG C12 FEW YEARS AGO, THIS AVANTONE CV12 IS AN AKG C12 REBORN!
