post #1306 of 3825

I have the RCA 6AS7G and the GE 6080.

After burn-in , I prefer the GE....have a animal BASS !!!

Any information about Raytheon 6080 ?

What is the best , Raytheon or CSF Thomson ?

Early 1950's Tung-sol 5998 Clear top!

 

I am actually quiet chuffed with this find, it was in with a bunch of various different untested tubes so took a bit of a gamble with it. First try it didn't work no sound no glow on the heaters :(.

 

I pulled it out and had a look to see if I could see any internal damage then retried it ah ha heaters are now glowing and sound sometimes muffled and occasionally dropping out and in on one channel. :confused:

 

Pulled it out to check the pins and they were totally black with a hard carbon type of oxidation. Ten minutes of pin scraping with a xacto knife and a little buff with scotch brite pad later gleaming pins reinsert deep breath relief  and release its now working perfectly and is a beautiful sounding tube what a result! :atsmile:

I have some Tungsol, but the gain is high for my amplifier and the sound distorce. My amplifier do not use a cathode follower configuration, have output transformers and speakers !

That's...strange.  What amp is this?  I assume you use 6as7 or 6080 power tubes?  How do you run them and what are the specs on your opt?

My amplifier is home made and I do not use headphone, I have loudspeakers.
The 6080 is the output tube.
My GE play very detailed in this configuration.
The RCA 6AS7G do not sound good as the GE 6080.

OK so i just received my G.T.C. 6AS7G and i dropped one of them on the floor accidentally.This tube have no number markings at all just G.T.C. made in USA it marked on the base and on the box what you see on the pictures that is the markings it have.

I have one of these 6AS7G with clear tops and side getter.

Mine is RCA branded... not Tungsol...

post #1315 of 3825

I too have a clear top made/marked as RCA

post #1316 of 3825
I have both RCAs and Tung-Sols that are top getter, and some that are bottom getter. Both RCA and TS seem to have made 6AS7Gs with both configurations. RCA of course also made grey and black plate versions.
