I am streaming , how can I play music when provider goes down.
That’s why I purchased a streamer that also allowed me to rip my cd’s. I can stream Tidal and also source my cd collection. I sold my cd transport since it was no longer needed.

Reliable source for 6550WE tube - Audio Research Ref 6
Another lesser known source is Amplified Parts. They cater mostly to the musicians crowd but have lots of tubes.
