Well, these are one their way:

I've heard good things about them here and there. Now here's to them helping me hear.

 

 

Anyone want to buy my Siemens PCC189s? LOL $20 + shipping.

These too:

I'll report how well the E288CCs work. Not too impressed with the PCC189s

Since Valvos have recently been brought up...by coincidence, I rolled in a pair of 1959 Valvo D-getter PCC88's yesterday afternoon. I had bought these from a fellow Head-Fier a couple months back, but just now got around to rolling them in and I spent the rest of the day listening.

 

Very, very nice tubes! Bass extension seems average, but tight. Smooth silky mids, extended airy highs. The best part is the "3D" soundstage which is almost as wide as the famed Stuttgart Lorenz on my rig.

 

Oh, one more thing. The first song I chose was Flamenco Sketches, Kind of Blue, Miles Davis. Same year as these tubes, 1959.

 

Does anyone else match the year of the first song to the tube, or am I the only certifiable lunatic here? eek.gif

Joong, this logo means these tubes are highly recommended for listening to music by Guns N' Roses. wink.gif

 

 

 

Just kidding, my friend. I honestly haven't noticed that mark before, sorry.

The Amperex 6922s developed light background noise after 45 minutes.You can see that they were not NOS.  Next up are NOS Amperex relabled Teonex 7308s.

Sorry to hear about the noise in the 6922s! Did the seller claim them to be NOS?

The analytic sound point of view, these all things are non-sense?

Because there are lot expensive SS amp with SS dac to generate high fidelity electrical number like THD, IMD, or etc.

 

I think we seek some personal taste which is largely agreeable to small set of people who are gather together in this threadbiggrin.gif.

For one example, cost (Lyr + Siemens tube) >> Mjolnir is justified by some of us.

 

My Opinions.

It's a much larger group than you think. 

Watch the documentary "Sound City"

 

Sound City trailer

 

It is about one of the greatest recording studios in the history of R&R.  The centerpiece...  the Neve 8078 mixing board, handmade in the UK by Rupert Neve.  Made up of?  Guess?  Hundreds of valves.  The greatest acts of R&R flocked to Sound City studio because of how that board sounded.

The members of that group, Mc Cartney, Young, Petty, Cash, Fleetwood, Grohl, and many many more.  Their coliseum concerts may be SS.  But when they are in their drawing room I'll bet they're plugged into Marshall and Fender valve amps. If these guys use valves, I wonder what Jazz, Blues, and Classical artists listen to?

 

Lyr+a buch of old valves >> BMW 5 Series.

 

EDIT:

What I should have said is, yes the group is small, but the members are very influential in the music community.

Lastly, a  Warning !  After watching the above trailer you will feel empowered to go on eBay, find some Stuttgarts, and click "buy it now"

 

EDIT2

Make sure to watch for the snippet with John Folgerty sitting in front of a rack of old valve amps. biggrin.gif

Ok I wasn't familiar with the ef806s, so I looked it up, apparently is a nicely built ef86. It is a pentode not a triode and has a different pin assignment. So in short no, don't use it

So I know you shelled out between 200 to 300 big ones on Ebay for each of the Lorenz Stuttgart PCC88s.

For that kind of $$$, I suggest trying the Amperex Pinched Waist 6922s.
They are in a different league compared with other tubes.

The next closest would be a pinched Waist PCC88 or an Amperex 6922.

Thanks for the heads-up! I'll keep an eye out for some.
