Sounds great I read the link you posted. How much is that tube without the process? Any good site you can recommend?
Generally Telefunken ECC802s is natural, detail and bright compared with Telefunken ECC82. It has better extended high and a more solid bass. When I use a pair on my CAT preamp, they usually sound exceptionally open and analyzed. It's good for classical but I like Amperex, mullard or Gold lion for vocal, solo instruments or new age. Most of people prefer ECC802s to ECC82and normally price is very high.
I think a reasonable current price for a single ECC802s is between 200-300$. Sometimes it may be more expensive.
You may ask Ray if he has any Telefunken ECC802s for sale. I bet he does have some for his own. It looks like he likes to use ECC82 tube on his designs. However Telefunken ECC82 should be the best buy for many people.
