Schiit Lyr - The tube rolling thread - Page 289  

post #4321 of 8735

Opinion:

 

AMPEREX USN-CEP 6922 6DJ8 ECC88 VACUUM TUBE 1965 PAIR MATCHED PAIR (USA) NOS

 

Well, this didn't take long. (2 hrs.)

I thought the Amprex Orange Globes were beautiful.  And they are.

The Amprex Bugle Boy's with my Senn HD650's ...  Much better than stock but not as nice as the Orange Globes.

 

Then there's these 65' Amprex USA's

IMO....These tubes (USA) are from another planet.

It defies logic how a tube could make such a dramatic difference.  Incredible voice and definition.  They gush music.

Dimentionality.  Good word.

I cannot see how anything will sound better.... to me.  Perhaps tripling the cost of my kit.  Not going to happen.

Perhaps they're just a great fit with the HD650's.   Don't know, don't really care.

 

How much do I like them?

I spent another $250 on another set as a "hot spare"

If they are rare now, they'll only get harder to find.

 

I think I'm done rolling.

I happy..... make that estatic.

How can you be done? There's still so many tubes you've yet to experience! C'mon dude! Plus, your wallet still looks too fat. tongue.gif

I've had hundreds of hobbies over the years and each time I go way over the top. Always chasing specs.

At the moment I'm thinking I should listen to some music.
But I'll be fighting my DNA smily_headphones1.gif

Hm. You wouldn't be chasing different specs, different flavors, surely.

Seriously, I'm glad you are happy with those rare Amperex USN's. Enjoy 'em!

I'm smiling because your Lyr tube experiences mirror my own. Substitute my Amperex A-frames for your Amperex Orange Globes, and my Lorenz Stuttgarts (plus backup pair) for your '65 Amperex USN's (plus backup pair)...and it's interesting how we both traveled that same path.

Oh, and watch out for Paradox....he's an enabler for those of us afflicted with terminal tubeitus biggrin.gif

Hah......enabler is an understatement...I mean....I prefer the term educator but still....we all know what we're each guilty of.  =P

 

/me slaps hand, bad itchy fingers ordering more tubes.

I can't hear you, I can't hear you.....

OldSkool. That's right! Cover your bets.

Then maybe..... When the coast is clear wink.gif

AFAIK, Telefunken never made any e288cc valves.

They were all made by Siemens and branded as Philips, Valvo, Telefunken and ermmm Siemens.

A lot of folks don't know this so a Telefunken E288CC always fetches the highest price on EBay.
