Hmm... I actually had a pair of Psvane 181's saved in my watch list to buy in the near future for use in WA22. So you recommend this over the Psv...... Is the bass impact better than the Psv ?

 

Thanks

I recently bought a few tubes from a seller I trust, including this one. Although labelled as a CV198x, the seller states that it is an incorrectly labelled B65. It sure doesn't look likeca regular B65, but a Google image search revealed a GEC B65 with an identical base, plate structure and transparent glass.

Does anyone have ecperience with this varient who can confirm its identity?

Most of my B36 are like that,  with the brown bakelite base clear glass.  B36 is the 12 volt version of the B65.   I haven't seen a CV1988 that is not from Brimar.  Maybe I haven't seen much tubes though.

Just got these two puppies today.

Both are Brimar 13d1 and 13d2.  

Military version of their 6sn7 and 25sn7.

They are going into a custom GlennStudio OTL amp that uses 6sn7,12sn7, or 25 volt version of the 6sn7 thr 1366 tube.

Where did you come across the company and why did you choose them?

post #4047 of 4253

Glenn is one of the member of the trade in headfi.  Just drop by the GlennStudio thread and have a look at his builds.

Im somewhat new to head fi. I must admit that most of my experience comes from stereo systems but I'm eager to learn! Thanks for the tip!

CV1988 is just a UK government Common Valve system code for 6SN7GT.
