Sony C-800G repair... ouch!

All,

I just picked up my Sony C-800g from Korby Audio. I had ONE tube replaced and it cost $175.00 plus tax! Last time I had my mic serviced there it cost 80 dollars TOTAL.

Needless to say I was shocked...

I would like to buy original Sony tubes or something "better". Anyone have a hookup on the actual tubes? I'm pretty sure I can replace them myself when they go bad... gotta watch out for the foil thing in there..

Thanks in advance!

Welcome to the wonderful world of owning a C800G...

You have to get them from Sony due to the foil packaging...

Wow, I hope that priced included changing the tube in the power supply as well! You know Sony recommends changing both at the same time.
