post #2236 of 2404

Are these a decent substitute for the 5998? Fair price? Be gentle, still learning...

Have you read the 6AS7G tube rollers thread?

post #2238 of 2404

I'm just finishing up this thread... Starting the 6AS7G soon. Newborn + 10hr+ work days limit my time!

post #2239 of 2404

I'm in the process of ordering the 7236, if you're interested in them then pm me, I'll hook you up with a member who's selling 2 pair (one of which go to me) and where you'll save 35 USD over what the referenced site charges.  Can't tell you how they sound though.

 

If you want to stay cheap yet good sound quality  then imo the humble standard RCA 6AS7G is not a bad place to start.  As always 'imo', but read the thread at your ease, lots of info there.

I'm running Tung Sol 7236's with either RCA 5693 reds or Tung Sol 6SJ7GT mesh plates depending on my mood. The mesh plates have a little more clarity and a wider sound stage but I only got them on Monday and haven't had a lot of time to listen so I can't say much more than that.

 

As for the 7236's, they're a huge step up from the stock tubes but I don't have anything else to compare them to at the moment. I'd like to pick up some 5998's some day and I have some RCA 6AS7G's coming just to mess around with. Tubes are expensive...

On another note..i still have my two custom-made Aura Hifi power cables (made by high end audio shop: aura-hifi.de) with high quality connectors (HEAVY!) that i had made specifically for my 337...

They sounded wonderful with the 337! to my ears they gave more body to the sound.. And u guys know i always buy the good stuff biggrin.gif

And As i have new (custommade high end blue circle audio) cables on order now for my new amp i am putting them on sale..

u wont buy better cables for ur 337/339 as they are made at same time., so u can say they are a matched pair wink.gif
They have european shuko connectors as i am in europe
I ask 110euro each..its a super deal!
Pm me if ur interested

Lovely looks GEC set :rolleyes:

post #2245 of 2404

...lovely looks but at absolutely insane prices.  More power to those willing and able to spend on 'm but way past my personal point of diminishing returns.  

post #2246 of 2404

I'm listenning to this setup with the DX90, little player but very insane quality ^^. And yes those tubes do sound "kind of" nice with trusty HD650!

edit: music is just magic through these! And the dual Sabre DAC is adding to that!

I'm jealous. I've always wanted to try out some GEC tubes but I don't have the money to spend on a single tube let alone a pair or a complete set. I can dream...

I actually prefer the 6080WB Bendix over the Gec 6AS7G. lucky me :biggrin:

I've always wanted some of those too but the prices aren't a whole lot better. I've only rolled RCA 6AS7G, TS 7236, and RCA 6080 plus stock tubes. They're all noticeably different but I think I prefer the 6AS7G's in the end, they seem more "musical" to me.

post #2250 of 2404

That was my idea as well until I got those graphite plates...

The American 6AS7G are very nice though, and do try the cheap Thomson 6080wa
