The cat's eye tube (1629) used in Cary amps do not influences the sound of the amps, they are merely an output level display. I am not sure I fully understand your question, is your amp not producing any sound/output?

Thanks for the replies. There is no sound from the speakers.I tried XLR as well as RCA..still nothing. I switched out the speaker wire..still nothing. I re-read the manual..still nothing. My Preamp(ARC LS17) was working perfectly with my other tube amp. I don't now, it should work. All the right toggles were switched,i.e speaker nominance,etc. No sound except when the volume is almost maxed out which is not right. Speakers are very easy to drive.
