In fact that is the PRIMARY thing that gives it away as a GE tube. When you see that typeset and those dots, it's GE.

Has anyone heard the GEC 6080WA ? How do they compare vs. GEC 6AS7G ?

post #1023 of 1480

bought a pair of 6080 GE/AMPEREX and was wondering if one is driver and the other one power (can I use them both at the same time ? )

Thanks

Better not say that outloud on any car-nut forum as STI, silvia, 240sx, evo , GTI or even older cosworth (and more) affectionees will kick u in the balls for that statement..hehehehehe
And same thing goes for tubes..u have lots of sizes of the glass for powertubes..even different forms of glass..straight glass or bulb formed etc. ... Or for drivers u even have the odd looking 5693 red hots..those have a metal enclosure instead of glass..lolz
But we forgive u for saying that as we are not like those fanatic car-nuts....oops i am one..but even i forgive u.. biggrin.gif

For me the bendix 6080wb with graphite plates was the master of soundstage..not even the 5998 came close..and i had both.. wink.gif
But u cant use both at the same time as both are powertubes...
A good driver tube and one of the best i ever heard is the tungsol sj7gt mesh plates..those are hard to get and probably expensive now...but one of the best..and i also loved how the RCA 5693 red hots portraited the soundstage..and they are affordable..
