Finally, the new pair of Black Diamonds are on their way. These will serve as a back-up pair should I need them.

And, I have decided to put all my speaker cables on the 4-ohm tap of my 501s; a custom-terminated pair of Kimber 12TC was ordered to facilitate that. Until now, the bass was on the 2-ohm tap, mids/highs on the 4-ohm tap. I will write something if the new sound leads me to re-evaluate any of the tubes I tried before; even though I've pretty much settled on the Black Diamonds, I won't rule out revisiting any of the other tubes completely.
