Note: Where you place a tubed preamp and what you place it on have profound effects on its sound. Walker Valid Points produced a more liquid, bloomy midrange and a bigger soundstage; the DJ Kasser Black Diamond Racing cones (#4) gave a somewhat drier, tighter, more focused but less liquid sound. These interactions have more to do with "tuning" and taste than with accuracy or absolute efficacy.—Michael Fremer
