A brief note on the Raytheon 6111 sub-miniature vacuum tube:
The Raytheon 6111 vacuum tube is a sub-miniature low gain, ultra-low micro-phonics, dual triode with a characteristic open sound stage and smooth delivery. It can deliver a 25VAC audio frequency signal into a 100K ohm load.
The 6111 vacuum tube, with its ultra-low micro-phonics, low power consumption and rugged build is ideal for portable amplification which is why it is at the heart of the Continental. The 6111 is built for rugged use, an ultra long life and low power consumption requirements. The estimated life of a 6111 tube is approximately 100,000 hours.
