Is there a guide somewhere that teaches which tubes one can substitute for any given tube?
Is the theme for the tube 6AS7 and its analogues. In the first post is not listed british version tubes, it A1834/CV 2323 and CV 2984.

339 is going strong here, and tube magic is still there, listenning sessions after listenning sessions, just every fudging time I hit the play button with some nice lil ol' music in the queue!

Telecaster, good to see you are still enjoying the 339! I went for the Decware CSP2+. Either way the 650's sing with tubes!

HD650 are wonderful with the 339, but I can't say the same for the HD800.

 

Anyone find a tube combo with the LF339 that sounds good with the HD800?

Ever tried Tungsol 6SJ7GT with RCA 6AS7G? First is smooth with good bass and the big tube is big bass so that should be good with HD800 I guess only never had the HD800 with my 339.

I'm LF339 owner since end of september - and I can't apprecite it enough! I started with HD650 headphones and recently upgraded to LCD's 2 ... awww I love this combo so much! :)  I'm listening mostly to 7236 driver tubes with red RCA's 5693. Wondering If I could get even better sound with 5998 tubes?

Hi, 5998 was not listening, but I can say that this is the best British tubes G.E.C. A1834/6AS7G/CV2523.

In terms in linearity 7236/5693 have very low distortion level with high impedance load I mesured (the best I've ever seen),  the combo sound smoother at the top and puncher in the bottom end, but with low impedance cans the 5998 will performs slightly better, the 7236 have a bit less  MU (4.8 / transconductance 12500) compared to 5998 (MU 5.5 / transconductance 14000),  higher mu will  lower the output impedance and be better able to handle the nonlinearities, distortions with low impedance loads.
