zvovchik, Is the 6H6p-i and the 6n6p-i the same? So 6n6p without the i is also the same thing?

6H6P-i ad 6n6p-i is the exact same thing. the "H" is the letter "n" in cyrillic(russian), since these are USSR tubes.
now as far as 6n6p being the same as 6n6p-i i dont think that is the case. in my inexperienced opinion i think that 6n6p-i is very similar in characteristics but some specs are different, look here

looking at the operation time, the 6n6p looks to be the one to have

i am now using Russian driver tubes with markings 6H6N and next line was 0884 ... these exhibit same behaviour as OEM tubes as per my ears and other gears.. i wonder if my observation is correct

I have nos russian 6H6N (6N6P) tubes as well, they work fine in the MKII, visually identical to the stock ones...

Thanks again for the tubes doc!

you are most welcome sir Don... LD mk ll and these smallish tubes are truly amazing as we enjoy extended hours of listen to HiFi music

zvovchik-
Thanks for the info. That's interesting that you can use both at the same time. Since the MK II primary function is headphones I wasn't sure how good the preamp section would be. What other preamps have you compared it to? It seems from reviews and from what you're saying to be way better than an afterthought.

Hi, guys!

Listen, I want some tube dampers for my LD. Currently I am using Voshod 6ZH1P-EV and 6N6P.

Thinking about HAL O MidFi and 7 Damping Instrument.

Does anyone have a tip or did used dampers and like to share some thoughts?

Thanks in advance

Been lurking for a while (i.e years) and registered some days ago.
I've decided to feed my HD580 with proper juice and just ordered a Little Dot MKII

.. already looking for the good tube combo (listening to jazz, classical, vocal music mostly)

Evening lads ! (Evening for me in France )

I was wondering ... I can see many lots of 6H6N tubes on ebay but power tubes do need to be matched isn't it ? How do you handle it on your amp ? Do you assume your are buying a lot from the same batch and their are all "pairs" ?

ps : sorry for my english

Just purchased one and am looking forward to hearing it when it arrives, especially as a preamp

Just want to say that the mullard ef92 is the best tube I have ever put on my little dot mk2. Slightly rich sounding bass, neutral mids and highs that lack the grain of most the other tubes I have or have had. My hd580s are very happy with this amp using the mullards and the 6n6p russian power tubes both given to me by bass_nut.

Just received mine. Source is a Sony SACD XE670. Sounds OK. Not better than the headphone jack from the source though ...

I'm not waiting for the tubes to burn ok, I'm gonna get some good Mullard tubes, I can't wait to have some good sound between my ears
