Re: 6AU6 to 12AX7 replacment
The 6au6 is a pentode so replacing it with a dual triode isn't that easy (in addition to socket changes). Of course, you've determined that the 6au6 has filament hum by replacing it with a known good 6au6 - right? How else could you tell? And, AES has new, NOS 6au6s for $4.55 - cheaper than the current production stuff. Now, tell me, why would an intelligent young man like yourself want to change tube types?
