Thanks, we appreciate that! :happy_face1:

 

A good match pair of 5998's testing close to NOS levels (+95%) should go for around $169 on Ebay.  A set went for that the other day with a buy-it-now.  At least tube prices seem to be coming back around to their normal high prices as opposed to the ludicrous pricing they were escalating to a year ago.

I'll keep looking but I think that would be a good deal from the prices i'm seeing..

I think the best thing to do is none of us buy them unless they are at that price.

 

If they don't sell as they are too expensive the price will come down.

Have you bought from this site before? Are the tubes NOS? Or new at least?

Just for reference to support what I stated above:

 

http://www.ebay.com/itm/PAIR-TUNG-SOL-5998-AUDIO-TUBES-6080-6AS7-7236-WESTERN-ELECTRIC-421A-2-/121680789642?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item1c54bd808a

 

BTW, 6as7g tubes (the ones you're after; ST glass) are notorious for noise from low level hum(s).  However, they can sound sublime with the right music (e.g. female jazz etc.) and setup.  I have several NOS pairs and really love them except for some with slight hum issues (drives me nuts :blink:).  The 5998s (relative to 6as7gs) are far more robust in all tube aspects: noise levels, and sound extension/ & musicality.  I don't know your setup and preferences but generally the 5998s are more than worth their investment.

I have bought from them. They are a very reputable and honest vendor. However, the last time I checked, they didn't have anymore 5998s, so you might want to contact them to be sure.

Wow!  Those WE 300b's are rare, but for the price I would buy a couple pairs of the Takatsuki 300b's and have plenty of coin to indulge in other areas (around $6k.)

To adeadcrab


I purchased 5998s from them before.

 

"NOS" doesn't mean anything. Unless it's in the original box.
