Put together a wiring harness this morning, but am experiencing a major ground hum coming from the empty socket.....
Anyway, this is what I did:
Found some .062" Pin & Socket M/F Terminals at a local electrical supply store, and thought that the female sockets just might work:
Crimped the sockets to fit the pins, wired everything up and gave it a try:
It may well be that pin 9, the shield grid, needs to be grounded. I did hook up a wire to it and held it against the top right front screw, but didn't hear any difference. Anyway, I will keep looking at this and I hope someone else, with a little more electronics savvy, will give this a try.
For now, will go back to listening to my Mullard/Amperex setup, which by the way, sounds great. A nice, wide, 3D sound stage, great clarity and transparency, warm and engaging tonality and unlike the GE 6AV6, these have a liquid and musical sound, lots of toe-tapping.
These 6DJ8 / ECC88 are well worth the extra time and effort it takes to purchase and wire up some adapters. Highly recommended! :)
