Thanks.

In my system the ECC32 or CV181 is more musical with a hint of warm sound and airiness.  While the TS are more neutral.  It all depends on the kind of music been listened.  With jazz and vocals

i prefer the Mullards but with rock the TS are better suited to my ears.   Both are very good tubes.

What amp are you using them in ? In my WA22 I find the CV181 more dynamic & has more punch than the TS BGRP.

Im using them in my Liquid Glass and Glenn's OTL amp.  

 

Try the 6f8g TS round plate, some people say its better than the 6sn7.  I have forgotten its sound signature but will definitely

give it a chance in the near future,

tung-sol 6f8g round plate provide a clean background and beautiful high and high quaility but not  much quantity pound bass, buy maybe not for the "warm" fans. good at orchestral music

Just did an A/B with TSBGRP 6SN7 & 6F8G. I concurr with lannik. 6SN7 has more bass, 6F8G has slightly better sound stage. IMHO.

post #4116 of 4293

How much more bass would you say the 6SN7 has over 6F8G?

 

I'll be able to do my own comparison soon, a TS 6F8G is on it way to me, just curious in the mean time.

 

Thanks.

with HD 800, TSBGRP 6SN7 gives me slightly more bass punch than the TSBG 6F8G, not by a lot but it is noticeable.

Can you describe or compare the two in terms of the differences in the mids and highs?

post #4119 of 4293

IMO there is no noticeable difference between  tonality of highs & mids . TSBGRP sounds more dynamic, probably bcos of the punchy bass. TSBG 6F8G has slightly better soundstage , highs are airier.

 

KMSV please also do most your comparison when you have spent some time with them. Curious to see if you might have different opinion depending on your source & Hp's.

If somebody wants a pair of staggered plates TS 6F8Gs (labeled VT-99), I'm thinking to put them on the classified. Feel free to PM me in the meantime.

They are very very nice indeed. Can't say they are better than TSBGRP but they are similar, maybe a little more airy. A nice alternative for sure. Will probably get a back up pair at some point.....
