I think it's very easy to dismiss her feather light, fresh and breathy vocals as merely simple singing and unsophisticated. Until you hear said vocals on a transparent, immediate and musical tube amp with detail and depth. And your joy quickly turns to disappointment when you learn many of her tracks only average some 3 minutes on a good night. :tongue_smile: And you wildly search for more of her material.

 

Though, my blocks appreciate highly sensitive speakers, they're pumping 40wpc so that helps a bit. No issues with the HE-6 pairing... (7.5 wpc @ 50 Ohms)

Would any of you glass gurus know what's the premium tubes for those positions? Thanks.


My 300B mono blocks use TV damper diodes like the 6AU4 and I find Tung-Sol the best. All my personal amps

use TV damper diodes I only use 5U4 types in amps I sell because everybody wants them.

Damper diodes are far superior as rectifiers then the 5U4 types.

Don't know about the 6BM8 though

Thanks for your assistance, that's good to know on the TV damper diode. Will hunt for some Tung-Sol's and check pricing Sunday.

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.

 

 

These CCCP tubes are very rare and expensive.

I have 1633's even TS round Plates so no need to bring any.

Mama's cookies are my last secret weapon and the only one that can make me or you submit into defeat.

The winner will be the one for whom they are made for.

Since you are the one, I might as well concede defeat..............

So much for my B65, ECC32, ECC33, ECC34, ECC35, QA2408 to name a few................

Eric I conceded defeat, no more bets...............

post #6657 of 10641

So Mama is my secret weapon with her cookies I like it.

We can still listen to your B65, ECC32, ECC33, ECC34, ECC35, QA2408 after

we eat some Christmas cookies.

This is my latest build It is for somebody in Morocco

It uses six 6BL7s for outputs or two or four 6AS7s or two 6336.

It won't be finished until I get back from visiting Stavros.
