Thought you might say that! Here's some pics...

 

 

 

EDIT: Had the chance to spend a little time listening to this tube. It reminds me quite a bit of my JAN Chatham, perhaps even a tad livelier/snappier, with a bit smaller/more focused soundstage and more detailed bass (most notably I could more clearly hear the texture of an upright bass, which tends to come across boomy when recorded).

got some rca and chatam 6as7g's today to go with my wa2. I wonder how they will hold up against the 5998's

post #979 of 3799

They should make for a somewhat different presentation since they will cause an increase in your WA2's output impedance as compared to 5998's or 7236's.  In general, and particularly with the hd800's given their impedance curve, this should fatten up the bass and mid-bass but it will be a little bit less tight.

Dear gents.

Could anybody help me with 6080 tubes from Mitcham plant, UK ?

I've read they could be labeled as Mullard or Philips, and maybe some other, but I need your help to find who's who...

What about Valvo and Telefunken 6080 for example ? It seems prices can go very high from one brand to another, for the same tube at the end...

 

:)

Repeating an earlier question, has anybody tried the Thomson CSF 6080WA?

 

It looks like they have copper grid posts so they might not be that bad.

+1

 

It's possible for me to score them at a decent cost, but I don't have many points to compare.

Where are you from ? If possible, I might send you the number you need to run your amp, and you'll tell us what you think of them ?

 

Have you tried Mitcham 6080 (Mullard and rebrands) ?

post #983 of 3799
I have tried the Mullard & Brimar variants but didn't care much about them.

 

I was very lucky to score a NOS quad Thomson CSF 6080WA for $8 when the ebay Gods were asleep.

It'll be sometime before I get them though.

 

I am based in EU and you?

Ok for the English 6080, I'll keep my money then.

 

You are a lucky man to trick ebay gods... They made me loose an auction on 7 Bendix red bank 6080 2 days ago, still angry about that :mad:

 

I think I'll wait for your report on those Thomson. I'm French and I can buy them in quite large quantities for 4€ per tube.

If they are a bargain, I'll buy a box of them and forward them cheaply to foreign audiophiles.

Lucky you to have scored them, otherwise it would have been a pleasure to lend you a few !

Merci Beaucoup & Bonne Année!

 

My tube mentor is in Annecy.

We have the chance to have some experts here, but some have passed away...

Maybe are you reffering to Francis Ibre, who's famous here... but it has nothing to deal with this topic.

post #988 of 3799

Not at all I was referring to my dear friend Bruno who is a tube expert and addict like me.

 

We share experiences, learn and experiment with amps and tubes all the time.

This crazy hobby has brought us together and we have introduced some interesting tubes to the head-fi community.

post #989 of 3799

Very nice !

 

Tube things are very addictive indeed, how they work, how there are built and how they sound.

I wish I was born earlier, when they were everywhere, and when there was a competition between manufacturers...

Now, hypster things and expensive stuffs are just round the corner...
