User Feedback for Sophia Electric 300B 2.5V Mesh Plate Tubes By Mr. Stew Glick, New York
After the retreat I listened some more and then made a quick comparison with the AVVT tubes I had been using and I was pretty quick to realize that I preferred the Sophia Electric tubes. If listened to alone, the 2A3s I was using sounded just fine. In comparison to the Sophia Electric tubes, instruments and voices bled into each other, the soundstage itself was more of a blur, and the sound seemed somehow rougher. The Sophia Electric tubes were airier, each instrument and voice was clearly dilineated in the soundfield, and there was a greater naturalness to the sound of instruments and voices (a guitar string with its overtones, etc., intact).
