post #2208 of 3724

there's always a problem in this realm, no? lol

 

developed crackle in right (occasionally) left channel regardless of which valves i use. going through the thread, seems it might be a resistor-related problem. it only happens intermittently (something like a 1 or 2 second burst of what sounds like slightly louder valve microphonics every hour-ish, sometimes longer), and for the moment isn't that annoying unless i have nothing playing.

 

my question is, is it ok for me to do nothing about it? i've had experience soldering wires and stuff, but i'm still crap at it and would rather I don't take any risks dismantling an otl amp for a minor problem—unless it's dangerous to keep it this way!

 

thanks again

Just sounding in:  did you receive my pm?  Haven't received them yet but all's normal as I explicitly requested you to wait with shipping because I wasn't at the address in question.  Anyway, shipping from monday on is ok for me.  Thanks for having organised this, very excited to hear them.

The 6SJ7WGT sounds great.  The RCA 6AS7G/EF80 has long been my reference and that combination works well with the HD 650 but I prefer the 6SJ7WGT with the T1.  It slightly tips the T1 more toward my preference without changing it too much (calms the highs, and a fuller/more bodied sound).  

 

The Westinghouse 6AS7G sounds very similar to the RCA to my ears.  It's a very nice tube and there doesn't seem to be a lot written about it, so I was curious..  I've yet to try it with EF80/EF86's though.  The only thing I've heard about it (true or not) is that the Westinghouse has better linearity.

I'll have to get some of those westinghouse tubes it seems. It's been a long time since I used the 6SJ7WGT, I tend to use the mullard EF80.

The Thomson 6080WA were getting extremely hot in the 339 so I replaced them with the Chatham 6AS7G
