Little Dot MKIII Tube Rolling - Page 192

post #2866 of 2868
I almost don't dare posting this, but I just got my order in from www.tubes-store.com in Russia. Order process was smooth and delivery took 10 days. I got a bunch of their ultra cheap 6J1P (6Ж1П) tubes and four of their 6N6P-IR power tubes. I just installed them. Oh my... I have been listening for months to the what-I-considered-perfect combi of Electro Harmonix 6H30PI-EV power tubes combined with my Mullard EF95's and now, I am just stunned by this el-cheapo alternative. The detail is a huge leap forward, I feel I can pinpoint by the micrometer where all sounds come from, it's just incredible. The highs are as crisp as it gets. The only downside is that on the bass, it is less good than the EH/Mullard combination. Still good enough, but the warmer, deeper bass of the EH/Mullard combination just isn't there. But who knows what will happen after hours of burn-in; now I am listening to them fresh from the box.

Anyways, above all, those 6J1P (6Ж1П) tubes are an absolute bargain, I am considering to order 10 more even though I don't need them, just because they are such a bargain... and thumbs up for the guys at www.tubes-store.com, especially Sergey who contacted me within hours of the order regarding the payment, helping me make the order process smoothly. Excellent service, guys!
