Best reference I know of is here: http://www.audiotubes.com/12au7.htm

Just a list of equivalent tube numbers without descriptions:

 

12AU7 / 12AU7A

ECC82

CV491

5814

6189/E82CC

5963

6350

6680

7730

ECC802

E80CC/6085

B749

 

I have several of these (underlined) and have tried them at least once in the amp (with varying results).

Mullards, Telefunkens, and old American black plate tubes sound best to me.

The recent remade Russian and Chinese tubes sound noticeably worse, even in this amp.

I think if I couldn't get any vintage tubes, I'd probably not bother to use this amp at all.

Hey guys,

I'm wondering if anyone tried using Bravo Audio Ocean AMP with AKG K712,is it strong enough to fully power those headphones? Also, does it color the sound much or is it more of a neutral?

It will definitely drive the k712 but if you are looking for an uncolored sound, I wouldn't go for a tube amp.
