  1. Mine have apparently left Athens airport but no update for a few days yet. Keen to give the a go.
  2. Thanks for the insights everyone! Seems like matched might be the way to go for the PDX. I've got some Tungsram PCC88 7DJ8 tubes on the way and am on the look out for some used Genalex Gold Lion 6922s (these were in the PDX when new I believe). I'm hoping to get a bit more lively midrange, I'd suspect they're bright in the highs and my boomy room isn't helping the vocals when I listen to rock. I listen to a broad range of things (classical, rock, jazz, alternative) but the vocals are a bit lacklustre when there's a lot going on. Swapping to a cheaper DAC I have around helped a lot but it's otherwise not in the same league as the PDX. Realistically, I need a better room or some treatments but tube rolling seems a fun thing to play around with in lockdown.
  3. I'm running a Lenehan PDX L2 DAC and I'm going to tube roll for a bit of fun and to see if I can make everything a bit more lively (including my life in lockdown!). My current tubes are 6922s (Voskhod 1977) if anyone is interested. The key question is: do I have to use matched tubes or would non-matched NOS tubes be ok? How important is tube matching in this scenario? I'm aware that I can go and buy a matched pair but at the moment there are two available that would suit. I'm also just a bit intrigued. Any info would be appreciated
  4. Item: Genalex Gold Lion E88CC 6922 x2 (matched) Price Range: Negotiable Item Condition: Used (would also be happy with NOS) Extra Info: Shipping to 3052 or pickup within 5km. Looking to try them out in my Lenehan PDX and compare with some other tubes I have ordered from o/s. Currently have some '77 Voskhods in the PDX.
  5. Funnily enough I've just ordered some on Benjet's recommendation (I'll reply you your last PM when they arrive!). I had to go with a different seller as there is no shipping to Australia from Serbia at the moment. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/PCC88-7DJ8-made-by-Tungsram-Hungary-NOS-matched-pair/193613811265?hash=item2d14484e41:g:ETUAAOSwQSlfK4A5 I think I may have asked that German seller if they were matched and if they could ship but they said they couldn't to Australia at the moment. You could definitely check though
