Onyx & URI tubes

Not sure I understand what you mean by layering effect. Would you please explain, is this a benefit or deficit?

I was not aware that Vitalite had a 60" tube. Can you tell me where you have seen them, or where I can get more info on them. The kit I plan on purchasing does not offer option of any other tubes, beside the URI. So I guess I will have to take the good with the bad. 10,000K , that is high, yes. I have heard that Tritons are good tubes and they have a rating of 10,000K?

Always learning, for the APD people. Thank you all for your help, now and in the past.

Your Friend,
