Place you bets.

 

Here's one of my weapons, an experimental Raytheon 6SN7:

It seem I have to wait till February to join the 2359glenn OTL club but I'm already excited! :beerchug:

What tubes have you HD800 owners been loving? Powerful bass, beautiful clear and warm mids and smooth and detailed highs with a deep soundstage and good imaging sounds about right...

The cheaper the better is a good motto here.

Right, Ultra-! Ultra-, at least you have a view of a neighbor's crazy cat and some greenery.

They sound very nice.

 

BTW, just to make it clear when the Tube Wars start, I'll be using All American Tubes and headphones.

Glenn will have to make do with the CCCP tubes and European/Japanese Headphones.

 

Who wants to bet on the winner?

 

Eric is collecting the bets..................

 

Some of Glenn's Secret Tubes:

 

 


What I get the worst sounding 6SN7s there are WTF!!!!!!!!!!!

I will take a pair of 6H13C for outputs and almost any American 6SN7

Then we can start switching cheep American 6SN7s and Your expensive European B65s and such.

I will have to bring some Westinghouse 6SN7s and KEN-RAD 1633 that I paid $1.00 for.

 

We can have the tube wars in between eating Mama's Christmas cookies with hot coffee.

Hoo-ray for Beer French bubbly! :normal_smile : I finally brought home a pair of speakers - Pre-Owned KEF Corda 9's. Can't wait to leash them up to both the vintage Sansui G-22000 and Shindo Lab monos. Speaking of which, I currently have Raytheon's for both 6BM8 & 6AU4 slots. Would any of you glass gurus know what's the premium tubes for those positions? Thanks.

Thanks. I'm out to prove once and for all that Astrud Gilberto's vocals really can float through mid-air, without meditation or... ahem, unusual substances. :rolleyes:

perfect for tubes. I tried the Kef R500 with WA2 as pre amp but i wasn't that gone on the sound. Do you know if the sensitivity has to be high for the pre-amp function? Maybe the fact that i was using a Rotel integrated amp as apposed to a power amp.
