+1 i totally agree..the lcd sounds better on a violectric v200 to my ears anyway.

I tried the LCD2 with many different amps, tube-hybrid and SS. I completely agree with you: the LCD sounds best with the V200. I think it has to do with the ultra clean midrange which the LCD requires because of some of it's own shortcoming in this area--a slight honking sound. The RWA Corvina (balanced hybrid) works well too; the sound with the LCD2 was very smooth but a tad too dark for my tast. I have good luck pairing the LCD with the Schiit Mjolnir as well. It was clearly the most powerful sound of the group but the midrange was not as clean as the V200's.

Cheers!

Thanks everyone.  I just picked up some RCA 6AS7G and Tung sol 6SJ7GT.  I am getting the 6SJ7GT matched.  They are being shipped and hopefully won't be damaged in transit.  Do I need an adapter for the 6SJ7GT to attach to the 339?

 

The 5693 do kinda spoil the look of the amp ; ) 5998, maybe one day. 

 

Will keep everyone posted.

No, it is a 5693 equivalent. Where did you get the TS 6SJ7GT?

Real NOS telefunken EF800 that don't hum, but you have to make adapters for them.

The mesh plates TS of course if you can find those.

Doubtful. I asked the seller a few weeks ago. They're not mesh wink.gif
post #1467 of 2364

Hehe so those TS aren't mesh! Would have been too good to be true ;p

 

Anyway for that kind of money you are Lucky already if you got smooth plate 6SJ7GT from Tungsol, they sound good from what I read, bit better than all the rest of the ribbed plated 6SJ7GT.

post #1468 of 2364

Oops, I thought all Tung Sol 6SJ7GT would have mesh plates, well as per google images they all did! (Yes, big facepalm)

 

Oh well, the joys of tube rolling... 

post #1469 of 2364

Listening to the 339 with Chatham copper grid 6AS7G and Mesh plates Tung Sol 6SJ7WGT right now with the HE500

 

 

Sorry for he bad pic but the sound is awesome. I prefer the Telefunken EF80 and the 6SJ7WGT TS over the RCA RED

Love seeing tubes in the morning!
