    Hey, for anyone that really loves their RSA 23 but wishes it had more headroom, I recently found a possible solution! I bought a nos Tesla ecc82 (12au7) and it gave me a lot more headroom and didnt affect the overall volume like I thought it would since the tube has a lot less gain than a 12ax7. If anyone has the chance to try it, I recomend it highly!

    Thanks for sharing that info - I'll definitely give it a shot. Did you put it in v1?

    yea, i put it into v1 davros!

    PaulE, the tube I switched was the one farthest to the left in the line of 3 tubes.... I believe that is the pre amp section for the TMB channel.
