      NOS Tungsram EF184 arrived today. Getting ahead of myself a bit, but this is shaping up the be my fav tube in the SW51+.

        Elex & HD6XX. The stock tube is really nice.. and I hate to be hyperbolic.. but the Tungsram smokes it handily. Dynamics are just.. wow. Resolution and timbre, especially midrange timbre are on another level compared to the stock tube. The Tungsram combines a lot of things I like about my other tubes into one.

        Gives a serious jolt when a sleepy dac like the Modi 3 is in the chain. Thing is, the Tungsram is not an aggressive/forward tube.. but it's not laid back (of course).. just bold, very holographic, resolving, balanced, and dynamic. Pairs exceedingly well with the Elex & HD6XX.

        Good looking out. I'll have to try a coupla those whenever a SW51+ finally migrates to my door to go with my trusty HD6xx's. Sounds uncannily up my alley. Everything you're describing is exactly what I like about what a Phillips PCC88 does to a Vali 2.

        Looks like they go for cheep too! Good stuff!

        I prefer the stiffer blades of a single edge razor, I can get a closer shave in a single pass.

      I might've wrote off the Amperex 6EJ7 in the SW51+ prematurely. So clean, so smooth. Layering & soundstage is sneaky good. Elex likes!

        One of the less praised aspects of the SW51+ pairing is that it minimizes, if not eliminates, the the 'metallic' quality of the Elex drivers. Back to the Amperex.. man, it needs a while to open up.. sounded dynamically compressed for a decent amount of time. Not anymore!

        Yeah I was a big fan of the pairing, but unfortunately had to let my Clear go since I didn't use it that often.

      Been enjoying the Elex a lot (shortcomings and all). Insanely immersive on the SW51+.

        @RobS Just to give you my reference points for IEMs: UERM (custom), EE Spartan (custom), PP8, Andromeda, IER-M9.. and FDX1. I've heard and owned a shit ton more.. but those are my favs. I clearly favor tonal transparency, neutrality, resolution, and clarity, imaging and coherence.

        Holy crap, that's horrible. So young, so sudden...our brain often has a hard time comprehending this. Please take what people are saying seriously, if you're feeling out of sorts, talk to people. Take care of yourself.

        Sudden cardiac death, brain aneurysm, etc. are especially hard to process when the person was so young. As others have mentioned this is a time worthy of counselling, therapy, group grieving, whatever works to help process a difficult situation. My condolences to you and everyone affected by the death.
