What rectifiers are you running?  Those make a difference, too.

I'm using a pair of phillips E88cc SQ with large halo getter with the GEC 6as7g. I'm pretty pleased with the sound, though I do not have the other 2 for comparison.

im using the RFT EZ80.

Those do have very good high end extension. If your amp is going to the bright side, you can also try some rectifiers in that don't have the same high end, such as a GE, Ei, or Philips.

how r the mullard, brimar, telefunken like?

post #771 of 1026
I haven't tried them in my amp, but this read might give you some good info. I'll say, though, that of all the rectifiers I've used in my Trafo, the RFTs have the most high end extension. I like that with my HD600.

oh yeah, like the only EZ80/EZ81 comparison on head-fi lol. and it doesn't have the RFT. i also liked the RFT cause they seem to be more clean sounding than the international ez80 and the NOS tesla ez81 i have. also i did notice they had the most high end extension as well

 

i've been curious about the brimars, though also on the genalex U709/EZ81/6CA4

I'm running the Brimar (Sel Lorenze and GE lable) EZ80 in wa2 with hd800 and hd650.  Very good top to bottom end with defined timbre and sound stage.  I really liked them and agree that they are one of the top rectifier tubes for the wa2.  I also tried valvo ez80 and it had no low bottom end and the jj tesla ez80/81? stock from woo wasn't bad but didn't compare either to the Brimar.  Sorry, don't have a pair of the RFT to compare, I stopped looking after the Brimars.  I'm running Amperex Holland 6922 and 5998, 2399, and Bendix 6080wb graphite tubes with all being NOS matched and balanced.  All sound very good with 5998's having a cleaner better defined low bass region although decreased in volume level.

i still haven't tried any 6080WB on my amp. been curious on them, also the tung sol 7236 which i plan to buy soon.

 

yeah amperex 6922 and 5998 is one of my favorite here with T1.

How do you like your new ts 7236 tubes and how do they compare with the others?

post #776 of 1026

I might get a pair myself. I'm going to get dark tubes next for the WA2 - dark and bassy 

post #778 of 1026

i find tung sol 7236 are kinda like that, darker than 5998 for sure. theres also umm RCA 6AS7G but they aren't as good as tung sol, much less transparent.

Where did you get yours from? ebay. 

post #780 of 1026

tung sol 7236 are near impossible to find.

 

check vacuumtubes.net i think they sell them and at decent price.

 

the best source right now is woo audio. i kinda wanna grab another pair, they're really hard to come by.
