For 6AS7G tube rollers here ..... - Page 67

post #991 of 1644

Sorry Nic, didn't do it on purpose.

 

I also got some 5998's from the same seller cheap.

No worries, I bid low as well. Interested in your views however. I have asked about other French tubes recently here and was was told not to bother, however my experrience was very different. The ones I have (not 6080s) are high quality.

They look very well made.

 

Not to forget that the Neotron 6SN7/6SL7 are very rare.

What can be considered as a good price for NOS testing 5998 ?

I don't see many (probably they are more on US only auctions), but some can be won below the average price I see.

I think around ~US90(per pc ) is cool

$90 is a very common price, I'm new in tubes but I don't consider it that good.

For a NOS and matched pair of 5998 of good quality 180usd is a good pice.

In the first ebay results you can buy NOS pairs for about 170 USD, so still skeptical...

When i got into tubes once i got an advice from one of the guys who i consider a master in tubes knowledge here on headfi i always kept as a rule..dont buy on ebay..as there are lots of bad sellers there..instead find respectable reputable tube stores... All my tubes i bought that way. wink.gif

Ofcourse there are good sellers...but u will only find out when u open uR package redface.gif

Yep, I agree.

 

I made a mistake in my post, I was talking about google results, not eBay.

I have made some great friends and some foes through ebay.

 

Some tubes I can't find anywhere else but ebay.

 

I have mostly overpaid via ebay, but sometimes there is no other choice.

It seems that Philips ECG 6080WC sound improves very much with many hours of burn-in. When i got those Russian 6N13S's i realised new 6080WC's sounded pretty dull and lack of detail. So i tried to listen with russians, but one tube had buzz and hum problem and it did not go away, so i was forced to listen with 6080's.

 

I think these 6080WC are not even near of the best tubes, but after serious burn-in they sound quite pleasing. And these are very cheap tubes in this class.

 

Hope to get multiple 6N5S '65, 6N13S '66, Rca 6AS7G and pair of used philips miniwatt 6080/ecc230 Holland next week. This means hard times for my diy amp.

Got more tubes. Won't say anything about sound. Just few hours of listening with these.

 

Philips ECC230 used and paired with similar looking philips 6080. These were used, but they seem to work fine.

6N5S (6H5C) '65. Don't know is there any difference with 6N13S. 

And finally i got RCA 6AS7G's '69 and '67. I believe these are grey-plated.
