I’d just be worried about the lack of ventilation over that gaggle of 12AX7 tubes Power tubes cost much more than signal tubes and they need to be changed more often so a tube pre is the way to get some tube sound into the system. I use a couple different tube preamps with the usual SS power amps, using the Luxman tube amps at times, too. Your name or email address: Share This Page Tweet. I googled CL32 and see it is tube.
Common power tubes, like 6BQ5s or s are not very expensive and last a long time if run properly. If there are none, then this preamp has proper control of the heat from those many 12AX7 tubes.
