  13. I don't run PrimaLunas but in terms of musicality, this is my finding EL34 KT88 KT120 KT150 For the same tube configuration the KT150 will provide the most power if your speakers need it. Myself, I run multiple KT88 (Genalec gold lion) because it's a good balance between power and musicality. Also my ESLs don't really need the high power that KT150s can provide but EL34 will be lacking in the bass.
  14. Just want to add to the discussion that power cords will also change the sound characteristic, maybe not to same extent as changing tubes and speaker cables but you will definitely hear a difference. Suggest trying a Nordost blue to get your perfect SQ.
