Also, the new 339 is suppose to come with OTK6C5CX2 and  6N5PX2.  I am guessing OTK6C5CX2 would mean the GEC CV 1067 as the driver?

 

Excuse me? :confused:

Source?

Maybe is the last time to buy the vintage pearls for reasonable price.:wink:
It's not new Yuking has it on offer for quite some time but most people I'd say 99% chooses the standard LF339 with the penthode driver, but having the 6c5 version of Lafigaro 339 we can use 6c5,6j5,cv1067,l63.... and with simply adapter which I believe Yuking can provide, all of those tube like 6SJ7, RCA 5693 etc..

6C5C = 6C5 and 6N5P = 6AS7G. 6C5 are cheap, but I don't know if they're any good.

I agree, the pentode in the special Yuking triode mode is unsual and sounds awesome. This is almost a metaphysical choice between the traditional audio pure triode against the rare pentode strap à la Yuking.

 

One advantage is that you can still use the pentode with a simple adapter in the 6J5 new model, while the old 339 cannot use L63!

On a positive note my C3G to 6J4P adapters will arrive in 3 weeks time, I'm curious to how this will make the 339 sound

 

I am curious too, so what the story! How's the C3G did you manage them to run ?

running them was no problem but the sound wasn't that good, a nice experiment but not something that special to repeat

I agree with you of course Yuking "Does not discovered America" the idea of Grounded Plate Type for pentodes was published  first ( maybe not?) by the Radiotronics at the beginning of the fifties but Youking LF339 amp is the first amp I ever seen to use that particular mode "à la Yuking." :wink_face:

What's this about a new 339?  Anyone know when the new version will be shipping, or is it already shipping?

post #1992 of 2403

 Good day, someone would have an experience with the EF86 adapter for 6SJ7 to report with rolling tubes? ...  what kind of headphones? Thanks.

I feel like i know the thread regulars quite well, despite not interacting with you guys until now

as the saying goes "the King is dead, long live the King! "
Welcome aboard neighbor!

guess you got the "new one" 339 which can handle the pure triodes like 6c5, 6j5....and backward with adapters, pentodes like EF800,80,86...?
