If you do, you will be assigned a nice air stewardess to escort you on the plane!

But Ultra- made it all good. Head-Fi has been the best for me. It has introduced me to new amps, new friends, and new families.

 

It was fun indeed. And you got to eat some new food you never tried before! And of course the Chaussée d'amour if you remember....

Let me know what color the OC3 glow, I'm curious. And Stavros is right about the 5998, let it heat up for a bit, never plug the headphones in right away.

Glenn,

 

have you seen my comment on the C3G in the 339? I can't seem to have seen a reply, are you disappointed?

I haven't replied because my GF is sick. She got bit by a tic and been sick since. We get bit by tic's all the time

working out in the horse pasture one time I had 50 of them on me fixing fences. This time she got a bad one went

to the doctor yesterday and she is being treated for  strep throat and Lime disease now.

 

Actually I didn't know if the C3g would work at all being run the weird way they are running the 6SJ7.

It was worth a try though ?

Did you let Clayton take the 339?  I herd that he is back and well that is good will be looking forward to his posts.

Put them in the output sockets put the switch to the 6AS7G position and turn the amp on.

Remember to use a 3DG4/5AU4 rectifier.

 

 

 

Yes, I received them yesterday.  I was planning on using a GZ37.  I thought Glenn said that was ok too.

 

I was hoping to test them in my tester.  I guess you are suggesting I just "let them rip."

post #4701 of 10324

I'm very sorry to hear Glenn, hope she'll be fine. wish her a good recovery from me.

 

It was worth the try, but I doubt I would ever use them again in the 339 to be honest. Clayton left without the amp, he didn't have any room for it. Lucky me!

He did like it however, didn't you Clayton?

 

If you want the adapters back to test them yourself, or if someone else wants to try, let me know.

I am very pleased. With nearly 300 hours on it, I would expect it has settled into its final form. Great upgrade. Now I need to grab some DSD files and see what they bring to the table.

It will be OK to use the GZ37 with choke input the GZ37 is rated at 350ma the same as the 3DG4 and 5AU4 The GZ37 is also one of my favorite rectifiers

just to expensive not sure it will sound any different then the 3DG4 in that amp though.

 

You can try setting the tube tester up for 6AS7s and test the 6336 you will be at least be able to give it the shorts test. Just don't leave them in

the tester to long I don't know if the 5amp filament is to much for your tester.

 

If you don't test them just watch them at first to make sure they don't arc over. I think I already posted what ones not to use.

 

The 6336 should be better at driving lower impedance phones. Let us know how they sound in your amp.

I will see if anyone that has a amp that runs the 6SJ7 conventionally and takes the signal off the plate wants the adapters. I will tell you

I don't have a amp that uses the 6SJ7 myself.

Where am I?

Amsterdam?

Brussels?

The UltraAmpRoom?

San Francisco?

 

Stavros! Here's to you and your gift of wine and laughter. We thank you!

Oh, there are some 6336s I shouldn't use?  I must have missed that post.

Crap.  I bought a pair of Tung Sol 6336s,  And they look so nice....

post #4708 of 10324

Can you post a picture of them ?

Those are the good ones they are not made by TS

They are made by GE or someone else and Tung Sol re branded them

Use them these are good tubes
