Headphones and the KEL84 Integrated

Re: KT88 conversion to integrated

Not wishing to infiltrate into this good thread but I'm going to convert my KEL84 PowerAmp to the Integrated version. At present I have a Schiit Saga V1 pre-amp serving it so I wish to try to 'park'...

Re: KEL84 Conundrum/advice

Thanks everyone for the advice. I've just plugged in the new power valves and, yes, I think the bass is better controlled. Yet to do some serious listening though.

Re: KEL84 Conundrum/advice

I've just ordered: Reflector 6P14P-EV.

Re: KEL84 Conundrum/advice

Apologies...just got back home.

I'm very ignorant of the apparent (and no doubt subjective) hierarchy of suitable valves/tubes.

Re: KEL84 Conundrum/advice

Hi Bob, yes, it's a possibility.

Certainly my 'top end' is far worse!

However, the Quad 306 seemed a little better. More research later this evening - (if my wife goes out !)

Best wishes,
