I've decided that if I do buy the bifrost, it will be with the higher end upgrades. Time to start, saving I guess(Well, after I purchase my Galaxy s4).

Tonight I rolled in a set of Siemens & Halske E88CC, CCa grey plates. Wow!! With the HD800's these are endgame tubes - the best I've heard from these cans so far. The detail and accuracy (listening to baroque concerti) was exceptional. Nice bass too - strong and tight.

They are in a different league compared with other tubes.
 

 

Lord Soth, I took the leap and acquired a set of NOS 1959 Amperex USA PQ 6922 Pinched Waist w/ D getter. Listening to these on my Lyr/Bifrost/T1 combo, these are truly in a different league compared to the Lorenz Stuttgart 3-mica. I still love the Lorenz but these pinched waist are just something else. I had chills running down my spine hearing Eva Cassidy sing True Colours. 

 

Thank you for suggesting these tubes!

Hi CKC,

Yes the pinched waist are the end-game tubes for any 6DJ8 based equipment.

Glad to hear that they worked out for you! smily_headphones1.gif

Cheers!

for me Lorenz Stuttgart 3mica is the end game tubes.  I haven't try the CCa or E88cc.  but I tried the ecc188 S&H.L3000.gif

Hi ckc,

 

How much did you pay for the pinch waists?  They are rated on the tubeworld site as the best of the vvery best of the 6922/6dj8 tubes. Any mirco-phonic issues?  These tubes are notorious for noise issues.

 

Thanks,

 

Bob

I don't have any pinched-waist D-Getters, but I have a couple sets of Amperex Bugle Boys 1959 D-Getter ECC88 (and one PCC88) tubes that I can part with.  I just got them recently from Mercedesman on Ebay.  They only have a couple of hours on them.  I also have a matched set of Amperex Orange Globe ECC88s and a matched set of Amperex Orange Globe 7308s.  PM if interested

 

I'll cut interested folks a deal (i.e. $100 for the Amperex Bugle Boys 1959 D-Getter ECC88)...

I have a few pairs of the Stuttgart 3mica's and I am going to roll those back in this weekend to try to A/B with the S&H on the HD800's. No question the Stuttgart's are very, very high on my list. It is just that I did not have the HD800 until recently and the S&H grey plates blew me away with this headphone.

Is there a source that has these tubes available?

I felt they _needed_ the DAC upgrade to make them worthwhile. But now, their pretty much stuck in. I have other tubes lying by the Lyr. If I put them in she generally spits them back out and cries for the CCa's.

with my ecc188, it blew me away.  When I listened to Lorenz 3mica.  It's finish game for me.  Although, I'm curious about CCa sound.  biggrin.gif

Forgive me for going off-topic, although my question is about tubes.

 

I'm looking for recommendations for 300B and 6N6P tubes for my 300B project.

If you've had them in the past please post to my 300B Build thread or PM me with any wisdom you can pass along.

 

Thanks
