That's a plus.

 

Again.  A 6922 / gold pin is a better tube.

6922's were used for test equipment and the military  (I said this before....)

Tighter tolerances .... should (Should) last longer.

 

Guy's

Am I missing anything on these?

Yep. I was doing flea bay country restricted searches.

Yes, too much for my taste ... just one man's opinion.

Imma gonna hold off. I have to slow down. I don't even have the Amp or my 6N23Ps yet. LOL

Forget it, even though advertised as a pair these are in fact not matched per the seller. I messaged him last night and got a reply right away.

Dear xxxxxx,

Thank you for your interest. The tubes are not matched. From the date code, I believe the tubes are from 1973. Cheers.

 So after some very hasty research combined with a complete inability to control my impulsive audio related purchasing habit, I just bought these from mercedesman.

 

AMPEREX 6DJ8 ECC88 ORANGE LABEL VACUUM TUBE MATCHED PAIR 1974 CHECKED TEKTRONIX

I know little to nothing about tubes, but these kept coming up for the sound I was looking for. We'll see how they pair with my Lyr and LCD2.2s...

Nope.

 

I have faith they will get here.

The seller gave me a Lithuanian Post tracking number.  It worked until it left Lithuania then the global post system didn't recognize the number.

Just letting you guys know that I am selling my Amperex USN-CEP 6922 tubes, they have about 150 hours total on them and they are a matched pair from MercedesMan from epay. Looking for $125 shipped for the set, less than half of what I paid. I'm trying to fund a speaker set up!

How long ago did you order?   I bought from the same person I think.   I bought some Amperex 6DJ8's from Israel and they took about 5 weeks to get here but they are the real deal, just took a ton of time to get here.

 

I really want to get my hands on these Lorenz though, I'm glad I've got great tubes already in the meantime.

Those are great valves.

That's a great price.

 

If I didn't already own a pair......  I'm still thinking about it.

 

GMahler..... hello?

don't be afraid of some back ups wink.gif seriously though, these things are on the money. very smooth and versatile. i figured someone would jump on em for that price, but i guess that's not the case. someone come along and help fuel my audio craze! The Lyr's also gotta go too, anyone interested in a back up unit?
