    what kind of preamp tubes should i use in my eden wt-500? i think the old ones are getting old and noisy. will different brands of tubes alter my sound?
  2. I originally had a 7025 in my Eden, and switched it to a 12AX7 (pretty much the same thing). Either one would work.

    I can't tell you much about sound vs brand, but I have read about people in the hifi market who say Chinese tubes are microphonic. That means they add noise when the amp is bumped, or vibrates, or that kind of thing.

    Others can chime in and correct me - I'm not the final authority.
