post #26026 of 30785

somebody rec a pair of drive tubes for my 6SE.  it currently has the Ratheon fat tubes in it.  Im not sure which tube they are.  i know its shameful.  they came with the amp and the seller didn't know either.  I think i had it figured out  when i first had it but have since forgotten. 

 

anyways.  ideas on a pair of driver tubes to roll in and try in place of the Ratheons.  Theres not really anything i don't like about the current tubes.  Just wanting to try something different.  Will be used the LCD2's.

 

edit:  they are 6EW7 Raytheons

I finally got off my lazy ass to take photos of my Hong Kong tubes with the 85mm f/1.4 AIS I bought on the same trip:

 

 

 

The Psvane CV-181T II gave off a chemical stink for the first 10 hours I used them, anyone else experienced the same thing with their tubes? At least it wasn't as bad as the stupid haze my country is experiencing now.

Was saddened frown.gifto hear about the air quality, kchew. Your 'glass' is nicely presented, as is usually the case. Can't wait to learn more about what you hear.

How do you like the GEC? I find it excellent pairing with HD800 but no so much with LCD.

The Nikon 85 f/1.4 is one if the finest Nikon has to offer, I had the AIS version back in the good old film days now I have the G version. The AIS has much better build than the G version.

This was what I woke up to on Friday morning. eek.gif

 

 

As for the Psvane, it's one of my top 5 drivers right now. I don't think I've hit the 100 hours recommended by Psvane for burning in yet, but right now it has a sweet combination of deep, punchy bass, extended but not shrill treble, and realistic soundstaging and imaging. And this particular combination with the 596 and GEC 6080 is a rare combination that works well with all my headphones (HD800, ATH-AD2000 and AKG K240 Sextett).

I like the GEC so much that this pair is my third pair. Gotta have spares for what you like eh?

 

The 85mm was an impulse buy after browsing the many camera shops. I don't really need an 85mm, but when I found it for USD600 I jumped on it and didn't regret it one bit.

That IS rare when one's tube complement satisfies a group of headphones. thumbsup.gif

I have been in Singapore when the fires are burning in Indonesia, it is brutal. It's hell on the lungs. I understand this year has been one of the worst. Hopefully the winds will shift and you'll get some relief.

Go with 6de7 or 6fd7(more gain). I found the 6DR7(international branded) too bright with the HE-500. The Stock Sylvania 6EW7 have a nice midrange but were soft in the bass and lower treble on up. Small scale ensembles and vocals were gorgeous, but they just couldn't do rock music.

It is one of the best sounding for WA22...

Hi all, 

 

First post!

 

Did anybody compared the Shuguang and Psvane CV-181 (the treasures vs mark II) on WA22?

And do any of you have any idea what's the difference between "grade A" and "collection grade" for the Psvane (the price difference is more than 100$)?

 

Thanks in advance.
