does anyone still find the 6N23P a good sounding tubes?
I have a pair of 6n23p's that I got with a pair of electro harmonix 6922eh from a member here. I always compair the two do to the fact they are newly made Russian tubes with near identical builds, that I can't tell. Like other newly made tube types they are not warm (kinds solid stateish), pretty detailed, with small boxy soundstage. If you kinda liked the JJ sound but thought they could be better, you might like these new Russian tubes.
Between the two for me the 6n23p sounds more natural I use it for acoustic based recordings. The 6922eh sounds slightly more clinical and detailed, also has a noticeable bass extension and I enjoy it with electronic based music.
To be honest I felt they were both kinda meh with my k701 and lcd2, it wasn't till I got the lcd3 that I found that the synergy with my setup and 6922eh was pretty enjoyable. Ive been using them a good bit recently they work well with that can imo. As always ymmv etc etc
