I searched and I couldn't find anybody who has tried original 6F32 TESLA PENTODES EF95, 6AK5
Or if they have they haven't posted there impressions. So has anybody tried them? Any guess as to what they will end up sounding like?
M8083 is the civilian, otherwise identical, version made by Mullard of the military CV4014, many are dual labeled and they are essentially the same quality of tube. Great tubes but not for everyone (bright and treble-centric).
These are reviewed on the first page and I tested some a few pages earlier (Mullard CV4014, a few different versions and years), and many have commented on these throughout the thread, inlcuding Acapella a few pages back.
You could say the CV4015/M8161 are balanced perhaps a tad high-mid centric, but balanced overall.
The GEC CV4014 that we were talking about a few posts back are a great mixture of both, not too bright, heavy controlled bass, and quite euphonic, which I like!
No, I don't think it is an issue. There were also early posts in which people commented that matching could be for some sellers just a way to make some extra money. As long as they are say the same year and the same manufactory, it should be fine.
What do you mean: "did my tube"?
The LD I is a hybrid amp. Hence, the power tubes (as for the LD MKIII) are substituted by a SS amp unit. So, you cannot use 6N6P tubes on this amp. The tubes you can roll are the driver tubes, which can also be used with the LD MKIII.
