For 6AS7G tube rollers here ..... - Page 100

post #1486 of 1494

Just got a 5998 from a stash, it has "45/53 mA" written over it..Could someone enlighten me on what it could mean? The tube looks and sounds good btw

Hey, L...you want blood ?!...;)...the quest is to come up with an amp that has a really good spec; better quality construction than your average Chinese unit, and at a reasonable price...it'll be a miracle if the feliks-audio guys can manage what has already been requested lol! More bells and whistles = more $$$, of course...catch 22 :o...

Ah yes, ilm2...but how much is the assembled S.E.X.?!

Cheaper than these "Little Dot MK VIII SE 12AT7 6H30PI Balanced Headphone Amplifier black".

Yes...it's the test result of a tester measured in plate current. I don't know what the standard in mA of a 5998 is but one thing those number mean is that the two sections are not that well matched.

Hi again, L.

 

Actually, I will ask them if they can run to at least a balanced output as well as SE, without incurring too much extra cost - another interested guy asked for a protection circuit in the pre-amp section for use of a DC coupled amp, and they will incorporate it in the prototype...so they are obviously interested in suggestions that are going to be feasible.

Hopefully, the cost should be WAY below this LD! And the 6H30Pi just can't compare with a good 6AS7G or 6080 IMHO...

I'am interested as long as the cost is reasonable and can be used in both SE and BALANCED Mode(user switchable).

Thank you Skylab..Thats a backup tube for my Crack.My main 5998 is a little microphonic, but I could live with that

The prices nowdays for such tubes are wack
