RCA 12AU7 are usually the cheapest and among the best tubes for Crack. Unlike power tubes, here price does not normally correlate with quality. With power tubes 5889 and GEC are normally much better than stock
Roon -> Raspberry 4 -> Khadas Tone in Bottlehead Crack+Speedball -> detachable cable modded DT880

I’ve got a few RCA 12AU7 variants including a clear top, a grey plate, and a black plate 5963. They all sound great with my TS/Chatham 2399. The clear top is a little bright with my GE 6080, but good with the 2399 and 6AS7G. I think what I’m looking for changes from time to time. Sometimes a dark recording needs that little top end boost. The other day I plugged my Sennheiser HD600 directly into my NAD C740, which I can’t remember doing since building the Crack almost ten years ago because why would I, and was pleasantly surprised.
