Whoa!!!!!!

I've been down that path before.

Siemens CCa..... Yawn
Telefunkens..... Slight pause........Yawn
Lorenz Stuttgart..... Pause.... Long Pause.... But Yawn

I suggest paying the $$$$ upfront for a matched pair of Amperex pinched waist 6922 tubes.
They are really the best and you will never ever have to look over your shoulder for the next "better" valve again!

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. 

You've hit the Jackpot!!!

The Amperex *USA 6922 has around 90% of the sonic signature of the famous holy grail pinched waist tubes AND at a much cheaper price.
My tubes were the D getter with grey shields.

YMMV for the later "O" getter version.

Thanks.
I'm new to this but but I thought so. I really trust Tubehunter on eBay.
Ron said essentially the same thing as you. I appreciate you confirming that.

I like them very much. I've got Chopin in my ears now.

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

 

Darn you Lord Soth, you chimed in a tad too late lol.  Lesson learned. =X

 

I also picked up 2 sets of the amperex white pq 7308 e188cc and they are pretty amazing as well.  You're so right on the ccA count.....they are really a bit of a downer for the $$....I think the lorenz is worth more....but solid enough of a tube for me to grab an extra pair that I'm regretting now since it's noisy -_-......

not bad, they cut out the banners and ads for the most part. Only thing I would change is they don't tell you how many posts have been added to your subscriptions, just a star instead

Loads faster and I like the nav.

I bought these from audiogon, contacting the guy now to return....not a happy camper.  After this ordeal, I think I'm going to pick up a set of those 6922 US amperex these guys are spewing about....just to see what the fuss is. =P

If you're in the US I loan you my spare pair when they come in.
post #4350 of 8735

Mighty generous of you thanks!  But I wouldn't want to be responsible for possible damage during transit etc.  I can pick up a set of my own heh, just need the refund to come back from these ccA's so the wife doesn't suffocate me in my sleep. wink.gif
