My 7308's were a trade from another Head-fi'er that I gave a Tube Tester to.

I have a small collection of tubes waiting, or in route, to roll into my Indeed that is on its way: a Philips Jan 6922, an RCA 6922 (Siemens silver shield), a Mullard ECC88/01, a Philips Miniwatt PCC88, a Telefunken PCC88, a Siemens PCC88, and a Heerlen Amperex 6dj8. I'll try to get some pics posted...
There are some very good eBay auctions at the UK and German sites. Caveat Emptor, though. There are some real obvious NEW tubes being pushed as NOS out there. But there are some bargains too: the Tele and Siemens PCCs were won at a Euro each plus shipping (<$15 total), and the Mullard was less than $20 shipped.
Even if they suck big time, I can show them off with the old Zippo lighters and other curios in my study. There will be other amps down the road, too... besides Christmas and Hanukkah are coming. Head-fi stocking stuffers?
It seems like theres 2 different versions for sale for the same price.

I'm planning on getting the newer version but has anyone tried it yet?
