    Tung-Sol KT 120, first impressions.

    First a little background. I own a pair of Quicksilver Audio Silver 88 mono blocks. I have owned t he amps for about year and a half. Used Four different KT 88's. Here is the order in preferance:
    1. Shuguang Treasures Series
    2. Golden Lion reissue
    3. Electro-Harmonix
    4. JJ Electric
    I have been using the KT 120's four about three weeks now. I would say about thirty hours on them. I really like these tubes. Sound is smoother, more linear frequency response. Bass is tauter with a little more emphasis. Highs are crisp and vibrant without sounding bright or harsh. Soundstage has a little more width, better depth, and more foward, i.e. room filling. Overall a very good tube.

    One thing to keep in mind, these are large tubes. About a half inch taller than a KT 88, and about a quarter inch larger in diameter.

    Remember, different isn't always better, but it is different.
    Keep things as simple as possible, but not too simple.

    The standard Shuguang 2a3c in my amps sound better IMO than the high dollar RCA's. I'd love to have a pair of Shuguang 2a3c Treasures but they cost around $400 a pair.

    I'd like to try some JJ 2a3's but I just had a brand new JJ EL-84 blow so I don't want to risk that much money going up in smoke.
