I have been lucky to have the Cary SLP-05 for several years now. I tried all the famous 6SN7 tubes and found I like the 6F8G's better. I also installed 1 pair of the Marconi BL-63 tubes and the performance kicked up another notch.The umbilical is a cryogenically treated replacement and performance fuses were installed. I recently replaced the rectifier tube with a metal based GZ34 NOS Phillips Miniwatt which was well worth the expense. The stock preamp is excellent but with a little tube rolling , it can be a knockout.
