A New Hybrid from Indeed Hi-Fi Labs: does this look fun? - Page 24

post #346 of 355

I really like the 5814 tube type period. It was made for the military and is made to mil specs. It does have a higher filament current draw than a 12au7 or 6189. I have a Sylvania Gold Brand 5814 that is very nice and smooth with awesome detail. The GB is (was) a higher quality version with gold pins (typically). But the real winner in this tube for Sylvania are the the "black plate" versions. If you can find a balanced one of those for less than $20, you've done very well. RCA black plates are great, too. The best ones date back into the 1950s. I have several that are one year younger than I am... from 1956.

 

Look around... they are out there and they can be had cheaply. The 5814 and 6189 are both variants of the 12au7. You can't go too far wrong with either.

Was it you that said the Sylvania 5814 was a good tube to try?  It's a 12 series, right?

Waiting for my G2 6n23p version as we speak...

Thanks for the info!  My 5814 tube doesn't have gold pins but at this stage (toob noob), it'll do.  I'll keep an eye out for the other tubes as well.

 

Cheers!

I thought it was time to show y'all what my G2 actually looks like:

The exposed wires are positive contacts for measuring bias voltage (nominally set around 13V for all tubes). I apologize for the pictures' lack of quality, especially on the bottom pcb shot. Oh, the led on the tube bottom isn't blue... it's UV. If you have questions, PM me.

Does anybody know how this amp compares with the FiiO E7/E9?

I want to get my first real amp and I'm torn deciding between the two.

I once asked Indeed about the differences?

It seems that unless you need the pre-out, they seem to recommend the G2.

No No no, the G3 has the IRF 510 mofsets, and those help with Treble Roll offs, the G2 might have those as well but... newer is usally made to fix problems with older stuff... still review on it's way for G3

My review of the amp, mine has slight mods to it but still... a new take on this amp for those who are still curious about how it sounds!
