Power Tube Upgrade options:
The Elekit TU-8200R SX kit is an enhancement on the standard kit. It includes audiophile grade metallised polypropylene film (coupling capacitors). When ordering your kit choose from the following tube set options. Each pair is electronically matched and balanced for superior performance.
- Preferred Series 6L6GC tube is versatile and will sound great in many amplifiers, for many styles of music. It is well balanced from top to bottom. The highs are clear and clean. The low end well detailed and articulate even when pushed hard. The high end is articulate but not sharp or brittle. Bass response is bigger than most but not boomy.
- Preferred Series EL34 for a solid bottom end and midrange; high end is good but not bright. The EL34 is often used in guitar amps and performs well in the TU-8200R.
- The Preferred Series KT88 tube is a versatile high quality tube. It is very musical and with a frequency range balanced from top to bottom. It has strong detailed bass and smooth highs, with the mids slightly warm yet still detailed. The soundstage is wide and deep. The Preferred Series KT88 construction features a solid plate design and triple getters.
