The Ken Rad I actually completely spaced and didn't set my Max so that was totally my fault.  Someone also set their max to a really high level, above what some of the buy it now options are so yeah, wasn't worth it, somewhat glad I lost it and will just look elsewhere.

 

EDIT:  Not like I am in a rush, just like having fun with different tubes.  NIB/NOS 421's were kind of hard to pass up but will find more I'm sure some day.

I usually put in a max bid with an odd amount, like $53.75, just incase this does happen by a few dollars... even happened to me a few times, but I was also glad that I didn't win some of them. I also believe (not sure) that there is a software that will bid automatically beyond the highest bid in the last few seconds. Good luck finding the tubes, I'm sure they will come up again.

What style of CV1988 are you using, the metal based ones?

EML 5U4G Rectifier : :   : :

 

In my view, this rectifier is a fine piece of glass. But I fall in with many - the rec simply does not bring good value. Different manufacturers face different costs and we're footing the bill for them to bring the glass to the table at a profit.

Agreed on the value but I do have a soft spot for the EML glows in the dark...

And your eye for photography doesn't help avoid that soft spot either. :biggrin:

I've been using a Woo GES for the past year. I have tried a variety of 6S4 power tube sets of various labels. They all look and sound the same to me, which is OK as I really like the sound. But I am wondering, has anyone found a particular 6S4 tube type for the GES that provides a subjectively better SQ with 009's?

Damn, I should have not sold my NOS pair. 

post #30567 of 31102

Well, put the 6SE up for sale.  The 6SE is excellent but is way to costly and fragile (NOS tubes) to keep at work and WA22 is blowing me away at home, so may as well try to recoup some costs.

 

Figured I would leave a message here in case anyone was looking.  If this type of post isn't allowed in these forums, someone let me know and I will edit it.
