    I can relate to that story as well Gavin both in video and recently in audio when I replaced my aging Telefunken ECC 803S with a similar pair of virtually new tubes. It was like I had new amplifiers.

With Ken's calibration eqpt and his magic touch the results are striking!
    thanks! will try to keep track...what is industry recommendation? 2000 hours? 3000 hours?

    I'd change the bulb every one thousand BR (1080p/2D) movies. ...2,000 hours max.
    And for best; every 800 4K UHD/HDR BR movies (including 2K/3D).

    Here's a good thread from AVS to learn more about High Speed HDMI cables (18Gbps);
    which ones might work or not depending of the audio/video gear you use in combination:
    HDMI | A-B-C | HDMI Cables that Support 4K@60Hz, 4:4:4 Chroma, and Deep Color?

    Thank you! I am starting to think this $200 cable works perfectly...paint it. I have asked our contractor about painting it.
