Sophia Electric EL34 tubes

Received date: January 25, 2017

This is a brief review of the Sophia EL34 tube. First I would like to thank Richard and Sue for being kind, helpful and professional. I have Cary Audio Six pack mono tube amps. The amps originally came with Ruby EL34 tubes. Over many years I have used Electro Harmonix, Svetlana, Mullard reissues and Tung-sol reissues. My system is very revealing. I have spent many years tweaking and dialing it in. The system has very good power, a dedicated power line, power conditioner, grounding cables, power cables, interconnects, speaker cables and audio grade fuses. The system also has an excellent rack, isolation platforms and isolation devices. There is also extensive room treatments. Many of the previously mentioned tubes have a tipped up tone which can be apparent on some recordings. The Sophia tubes have the most natural and seductive tone of any tubes I have tried. The bass mid range and treble are all excellent. There is a wide and very deep holographic sound stage with impressive weight. The Sophia EL34 tubes are truly above and beyond any tube I have ever used. This review was after 120 hours of break in. My highest recommendation. J.A.H. Maryland
