copied from the review of a buyer two years ago at the bottom of that linkpage :

 

 

  1. I have been using the Russian tubes from Parts Express almost exclusively in my excellent Crack headphone amp. Always assumed the JAN military-grades weren't musical enough. Boy, was I wrong. The GE 6AS7GA after about a 20 hour burn-in is very tight and musical. I may just be lucky on this one tube but I can't argue the value for the money. Less than half the price of my Russian tube and it sounds better to me. Parts Express is a no-brainer for this type of product and service.

They look very similar in structure to the Stock Woo WA22 power tubes.

Same internal and font lettering printed on the tube. Different bass and glass.

 

The stock tubes sounded good/great. I hardly noticed a difference changing from the stock tube to something more expensive like the Tung-Sol 7236. I have kept the stock tubes as spares as they were good.

Has anyone had the opportunity to compare the Telefunken 6080 to the Mullard? And/or the GEC?

 

I have seen GE tubes relabeled as Telefunken, but I have also seen tubes bearing the Telefunken brand with the standard Telefunken tube code, for example, U6101805. These have a different construction than the rebranded GE's and I would assume they really were manufactured by Telefunken.

 

Thanks!

I have the Telefunken. They don't really sound like anything. It has least character of all the tubes I have. The gec 6080 are great and are the most engaging ive heard. Haven't heard the Mullard 6080 yet.

Thanks for your observations. So unless I come across a cheap pair, I think I will pass on the Telefunkens....

 

Cheers
