Maybe is the last time to buy the vintage pearls for reasonable price.
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..
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!
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."
I feel like i know the thread regulars quite well, despite not interacting with you guys until now
got my 339 today, old dv332 died last week so use it as an excuse to make a rare upgrade.
got ts5998s ordered, looking for the elusive mesh plates.
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...?
