I agree with you! $100.00 is way too much for this comp. I saw a set of mullards for just a few dollars more than the Tung Sols. Should I go for those or are those "knock offs"?

In reference to the VCS what tier of compressors would you put it in? I was under the impression it could compete with Avalons and what not from what I read from the reviews. Would something from Chameleon Labs (7720) beat up on it?

thanks

UPDATE: If the VCS1 is worth keeping, you're suggestion for the Tung Sols seems to be the way to go. I went to some Tube forum and like you all, they raved about the Tung Sols. I also heard that Mullards (re-issue) are darker than the Tung Sols but I want something a little more "crisp" which is the vibe I'm looking for.
