They sound different but better that's subjective I prefer the Mullard 6080 and sold my ones I think the attraction is mostly because its a unusual and somewhat harder to find tubes.  The GEC 6as7g and TS 5998s can often be found for less and are preferable imo.

 

I had been watching these Bendix 6080's today on ebay

If you see a genuine GEC 6AS7G for $75 a tube or less then let me know and I can promise you it won't be around for very long.  Same for the 5998 although there you might get lucky around that price point.  Those Bendix 6080WB are crazily priced, a fellow member pointed them out to me, I already own a slotted plate and column version of the tubes, luckily purchased at a lot more palatable price.  Still my preferred 6080 I think.  

 

Might write to my fund manager and tell him to forget about rare earth metals but stock up on tubes.

Personally I love their sound, but I paid only $15/tube :rolleyes:

post #1357 of 1644

The Bendix Graphite Plates are definitely great tubes..but not worth +$100 imo. Some years back, they were like $50. Look for good tube sellers and ask them if they have it or can get them for you. I got a great sounding Bendix from a UK seller (not from ebay) some while back..

Those plates look similar to a 6336

The plates look the same, the construction in yours is a bit different. check the spacers

The last pair before that (original boxes) went for $285.

It's hard to put a price on something that is both rare and coaxes beauty from electrons.

Thanks for completing the list Ultra.

 

I have not counted for the various retainer types and other details, otherwise the list would be huge.

Just pulled the trigger on a pair of GEC 6080Wa.
Hopefully I get them for the weekend smily_headphones1.gif
