Beautiful tubes, somebody grab them quickly!

Heh, and I've been looking for another pair too.  Oh well.  Got to keep looking.

Since the thread is asking for opinions, I will say as far as ECC32 vs 6SN7 sounds go, I much prefer the ECC32 over most if not all 6SN7s.  My opinion is that these tubes add a little bit of lush but not too much, over some of the 6SN7 favorites like TSRP, but are just as dynamic.  The bass through these just come out perfect, in terms of impact, sonic characteristics.  The mids are smooth and the highs are extended.  To me this is the most natural sounding 6SN7 replacement.  I use them in my Woo Audio WA-5 with EAT 300B and Chelmer CV575, WA-22 with TS 5998, or 7236, and RCA 5U4G, as well as an Apex Peak/Volcano.

Which combo do you like best:

 

ECC32 - EAT 300B

or

TS 6SN7 BGRP - EAT 300B?

Wow thanks, Wedge, you've just giving out the answered that what I want to ask here. I am about to order a pair of Mullard ECC32 brown base for the WA5LE but that will cost an arm. So I'm wondering how much the ECC32 would sound better than the Tung Sol 6SN7 RPBG that I currently use, you're encouraging me to grab one but does any one can have more impression between these two kind of tubes, thanks.

I totally agree with Wedge. I own both and I prefer the ECC32 by a mile!

I am runnning my WA5-LE with the ECC32 Brwon Base, EML 300B Mesh and either EML 5U4G Mesh or Mullard GZ33 Brwon Base.

Gotha musicman with thanks. I'll pull the trigger but am sad for the 6SN7 purchase in the last week for a pair of TS RPBG and Sylvania Chrome Top short bottle (I exchanged it from a pair of Ken Rad VT-231 since it was microphonic whenever I touch the WA5LE or dial the stepped attenuator) which cost me US500, sigh.....................redface.gif

Same here - in every amp I have used the ECC32 in, it sounded better than any 6SN7, and not just a little.

ECC32 - EAT 300B, the EATs seem to me very dynamic tubes, but lack warmth, which is the same for the TSRP.  So for me too much of one thing was too much, and I much prefer the ECC32.

Dannie, we haven't heard how are you enjoying your ECC32s?

post #29 of 104

I thought I might add that for some reason I think the Pan getters seem to have a slightly sharper treble than the D Getter.  Also maybe a hair more definition to the Bass, I can't be too sure though.  The differences to me are very slight and perhaps I'm just imagining it.

Too bad that I'm still waiting for the tubes, frown.gift hey should somewhere around in the planet. biggrin.gif  Will post simple impression later.
