Bought a 5751 on German E-bay, 15 euro's. Could see on the photo that it had black anode plates, it's an RCA and when I compared it to an RCA Command it looks like a twin brother, most of the orange paint is gone. It tested good on the tube tester, so nice purchase. That is one thing European tube m...

The adventure so far: Bought the Triple C from a local FM pirate station that stopped because the fines were getting to high for him. He told me that the unit so...

Hi JJ, If you have some tube driven equipment in the rack and the tubes are a bit "microphonic" than yes the rumble of the fan could interfere with your audio. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=13n1VCR6UXw&feature=youtu.be Another noise related problem could be that the microphone self is picking up th...

Most Bellari equipment have two channels. When applying the mods is it sufficient (if you use only one channel) to change just the one tube in the channel that you use?

Run into your question, better late than never, ha, ha. I use an Aphex 230 it replaced my Symetrix 528E (528E is now in use on my 2/70 Icom 910 via Ibox into the rig, works fine) The 230 works nice, Big Bottom gives a lot of bottom indeed. Use a tube preamp (RP520) and compressor/limiter (RP583) as ...

Nice raplacement tubes Dave.
Was able to buy a second hand RP-520 yesterday, shipment is underway, will swap the 5751 Command tubes to that preamp and order some more opamps.

Unbelievable, didn't know that they counterfeit those as well. Luckily bought them at DigiKey. Thanks for bringing the counterfeit issue on the board, warning for us all.

Hi Dave,

I use the Electro Harmonix 12AY7 as well.
Upgraded both tubes to RCA's Command 5751 blackplates.
Works just fine. What tubes did you put in?

Hi KiloD9, Glad the tube swap works for you too. After my tube swap the sound is clearer. The pop filter is a nice addition and works well, haven't tried to turn the filter around, 180 degrees (they say that this changes the sound as well) The logo is on one side and it certainly looks best to use t...

Had some difficulty ordering the microphone. Ordered it new at a web shop. When it arrived it was clear that it was "repacked" and than sent to me. I returned it to the shop, when I pay new prices I expect new/unused products. Got a refund and didn't have to pay shipping costs for the return goods. ...

OK, so better not use the Service Menu, that's what I thought.
The 870 has the C131 mod and receives audio from the rear already.
Tnx for the help. Best way to improve the audio further is external "gadgets".

Cheers,
