I tried the Sylvania from 1945, good bottom end, detailed but on the bright side

I brought today all my tubes to the office and playing around with them. I was very happy with Voskhods for recent time. Today I first put Telefunkens, and then Mullards, and now... I'm back on Sylvanias (1945)...

The obvious thing that popped up straight after popping them in was superb bass extension and superb treble extension. Amazing EQ-response to bass and treble (on all other tubes EQ-response was much lower).

Thanks.

I simply had enough of plugging plugs in every time I got to work, and unplugging before leaving office...
I also thought it could be quite portable, though it's quite heavy:)

Hi, I read a long time Head-fi but I never posted any message! I am one of the lucky owners of ALO PANAM, I chose the Concero dac into a wonderful compagon travel!

I currently have a PM-2 OPPO and LCD-2 Fazor have a killer sound with the Mullard 5654, but I must recognize that with the OPPO PM-2 is the best performance with the Sylvania 6HA5 ! I also ordered Voshkod 6ZH1P-EV, the Amperex 6HQ5 electron to a final experiment ! But so far my best choice with the PANAM + Concero 5654 remains the Mullard. For me the 5654 Mullard are much better than the CV4010 appears to be lacking in depth compared to 5654 or Voshtock ...

 

I use a translator, my English is too bad to write !

Hello Darktores

Welcome to Headfi wink.gif

Someone correct myself If I'm wrong but the Mullard's CV 4010 are the same as M8100 The M8100 being for military uses and the CV4010 the regular ones


6AK5 regulars and 6AK5W military version
EF95 CV4010 M8100 5654 is all the same no ??

A lot of people prefer the Mullards with Lcd2's and I agree about their sound qualities

May be the fazored Lcd2's match very well with Mullards and the non fazored with some tubes with a little more highs emphasis (like Voshkod 6ZH1P-EV)

??

I think the Mullards 5654 are actually relabel as RTC 5654 not very sure though. Yes I wholeheartedly agree that the fazor LCD 2 sounds very good with the Mullards and the non-F sounds good with brighter tubes like RTC and JAN Ge

I just received my new dac for the PANAM, the Director by Meridian promotion on amazon UK at $ 349! This is a monster dac the soundstage is wide, detailed, felt the voice and violin is beautiful ! It sends a surprising width while remaining full of detail with superb bass. A real discovery that I will not be baught to $ 700 for me a real success without a doubt with the PANAM !!
