6SN7 Tube Addicts - Page 252

Thanks George.

 

I have never seen these before.

 

Very nice collection, which are your favourite 6F8G's?

 

BTW mine are VT-99's so I wonder if the military version had the square type micas.

post #3767 of 4482
I notice that yours have the yellow thing that fades away with use. My favorite 6f8g still is the TS, specially the one with round mica. Also the BL63 but thats another topic.

Don't have much experience of the 6SN7 tube, but it intrigues me that it can be used both as a driver and output tube in OTL designs.

 

This one sounds pretty good to me in the output stage of my amp:

Indeed, some amps use from two up to eight 6SN7's for output.

 

You'll be pleasantly surprised if you try some US NOS 6SN7's.

And you don't have to spend much.

Has anyone here had experience with rebranded 6SN7s sounding inferior? I'm wondering if there's any truth to this, or if its ok to buy admiral, channel master, etc...

Hello Gil,

 

Nice to have you on board!

 

Rebranded tubes should not sound any different from the original ones.

They are cheaper and sound as good.

Have been following this thread with interest.

 

Based on comments made here (and during a senseless tube buying binge), bought RCA grey glass 6SN7GT in bulk.  White box - test NOS (I suspect they might be used, but can't be sure).  $25.00 each.  About 40 available. 

 

I wouldn't normally post shamelessly like this, but I think it's a fair price and I need to recover my debt for my family.

 

Thanks.

No worries! beerchug.gif

First in line gets first choice!

I am located in Australia, so worldwide shipping will be about $25. Send me a PM if you are still interest.

I have a few other tubes in bulk (not many as I am by no means a "trader"), but they are E80CC and 12AU7.

Cheers and thanks

Nathan

Thanks for the info. Currently enjoying the heck out of an RCA vt231. I ordered some "Rad-tel" mouse ears on the cheap. The ken rad vt231 had awesome bass and soundstage, but is a little fatiguing on the apex.

The RCA VT-231 grey glass are one of the best. Let us know what you think of your Mouse Ears.

I have just grabbed a pair of RCA Grey Glass for my expanding collection. Anyone used them in an Icon HP8? Mine are coming from Aus so might be a while getting to me frown.gif

Welcome to Head-Fi.

 

From the 5692 family the CBS/Hytron are the best sounding to me.

 

The 6C8G are nice tubes for sure.

It's down to personal preferences and system synergy.

I have not tried them yet but many have and like them.
