That's a fantastic film. It's got the same look as the old b&w films I used to see in elementary school (except that having grown up in Georgia, every school film started with a scratchy sounding couple of bars of "Dixie" with a confederate flag waving in the background,.. honestly!).

Really educational in both the way tubes are constructed and what it may have been like to work in a war time factory.

Hi, Myles,
I watched the entire video in one sitting and felt mesmerized...REALLY!  It was kind of trippy focusing on all of that magnificent machinery and wondering about the creative minds which conceived it.  I thought I spied Elin...and she was wielding more than tubes!

Better yet, they're some pretty good tubes. I've been listening to a pair of Mullard 10M Master series 12ax7s in my cj phono stage and they're outstanding. Incredibly dynamic, musical and solid imaging. Better than the "new" Tele small logo 12ax7s tried-plus much quieter. (So far the best of lot has been some '60s vintage, double post, Siemens 12ax7s that combine the best of the two aforementioned tubes. Quieter than Teles, with far more sense of space than the Mullards. Solid bass and good extension.)

Am also trying some Mullard 10M Master series EF86s in the BH Repro. So far like them better than either the Tele EF86s or 806s. More midrange, bass and dynamics. The teles have perhaps a bit more air and detail.

Currently,

I have BAT amplification and an AN DAC.  I'm given to understand the BATs aren't gear for tube rolling.  The DAC has limited possibilites.
