    I guess if you select the tubes (which take 45 seconds to warm up) you'd also need to reduce the volume? Not certain. Not sure what 12dB gain means (electronic vs. SPL is different) but I don't think it'll be more than 'twice as loud' ...
    Yes - you need to reduce volume.
    It's quite louder than passive...I'm still guilty of occasionally neglecting to reduce volume even after a year. Can be startling...

    I tube rolled with the following, but only the 2 tubes on the right:

    - RCA Redbase 5692 (good clarity, good mids and bass)
    - Sylvania 6SN7GTA (even more of the 5692 including more air)
    - Pope Holland (totally awesome but lose a smidge on the bass)
