i don't have a tube tester laying around. im thinking that's how the stock tubes are supposed to be. i put in some other tubes and the glass doesn't turn dark grey.
hey guys. my dark voice 336se finally came in and i turned it on. is it normal for 6as7 and 6sn7 tube glasses to turn dark grey from the bottom? i immediately turned it off after i noticed parts of the bottom glass was turning dark grey while listening to my music. i want to know if this is normal behavior for new tubes. these are the stock tubes that came with it.   i also smelled what seemed to be like a faint burn smell when i put my nose close to the tubes. once...
your PM earlier helped me clear it up. thanks for the response.   and i won a bidding what seems to be a NOS sylvania vt-231 for $20.15 shipped if his test scores are accurate. can't wait to hear the sylvania WTG, TS WTG, and sylvania vt-231. i slipped an auction on a almost NOS rca vt-231 grey glass. that was pretty stupid of me... i could have gotten it for $25 shipped. i was watching breaking bad and got caught up in it. grr
is that a good smile or a bad smile? lol. it seems there is not many of them on ebay. if any at all ;/
anyone have an idea which family this chatham 6AS7G tube belongs to?   http://www.ebay.com/itm/321176335700?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1497.l2649
just recently bought a brown base tung-sol jan 6SN7WGT in excellect / strong condition. seems the WGT version is rare to come by on ebay as dictated by this post. there are some WGTA there and here. anyone have knowledge of the sound differences between them?
is this from your own experience? i see you own an hd650 and the la figaro 336c which is almost the same as the DV 336SE. i'm guessing it's because the HD650 is a laid back headphone and a pair of RCA tubes on this OTL amp will give the aggressiveness it needs?
i'm looking into a 6SN7 tube to match with a JAN 6AS7 G Tube RCA NOS 1967 6AS7G (red text) i bought earlier. i'm going to pair it with the hd650. these are the choices i came across after reading this thread and the previous back and forth. can someone give a second input?   JAN CHS Sylvania 6Sn7 WGTA JAN CHS Sylvania 6SN7 WGT Sylvania 6SN7GTB Tube-TALL Bottle-Chrome Top-Matched Plates (green text) NOS RCA USA 6SN7GT Flat Black Plate Vacuum Tube NOS NIB RCA...
yeah i saw a few posts about that amp while searching through head-fi. not sure if it's worth the extra $63 to $70 though when i add in getting tubes.
