post #11116 of 14442

Hello there,

 

The tubes don't have to be matched.

 

I can use up to 4X6AS7's or 2X6336's or 8X6SN7's or 6X6BL7's and 6/12/25V driver tubes with my GR Super 10.

 

I have an OTL amp Glenn built for me that can run 2X6AS7's or 2X5998's and has the 5998 mod.

 

I can run low impedance Grado's with the 6336's or mid/high impedance cans with the other combinations.

 

I'll let Glenn advise you on the caps etc.

 

I hope this info helps.

The GR Super 10 is a special build, Glenn offers a similar one check this review:

I have never run my GR Super 10 with 5998's yet.

 

The amps that have the 5998 mod can run them at their optimum.

I don't know many amps, apart from Glenn's that have this.

 

Rule: Amanda is right. Tubes can be very evil and addictive, you have been warned.

I forgot to mention they can be seductive too................

 

Good Luck

 

If there is any consolation I have a lot of speed bumps on my head from my Very understanding girlfriend hitting me whenever a tube box arrived.

I nowadays have the tubes arrive at my work address Stavros :)

I tried that too Lieven, but I can't fool the boss at home..............

 

I blamed Glenn a few times but I can't get away with it all the time.

Sneaky fellows.....:D

Sneaky devils perhaps?

I lucked out on that...my girlfriend lives about an hour away. It makes it easier to sneak new gear in. Although, I had to give her some credit: she was able to see the SX-1980 was substantially larger than the 1250 when I swapped them.

I have arrived at a truce with my wife; an amp can come in only if another one goes out.  I manage to smuggle in tubes by using my work address.

I made a new deal with my girlfriend. Half of my spending money goes to Audio and the other half goes in the marriage budget. So the more I spend, the bigger her wedding can be :rolleyes:

The truce usually doesn't last long.

 

I wonder who will win at the end........................
