The dIamond is on the bottom Between the pins but it is not a definitive of proof! You can't see in this picture but I would ask the seller but to be honest it would not put me off getting them! I know the ones I have purchased have them as it was in the description. The thing is with these type of tubes I can see less point in someone faking them as they are so cheap. Charge $50 or more for a tube and there is incentive to go to the extra trouble but $5 a tube there is not!

The one you show though looks in great condition, heck, for the price of a few coffees what have you to lose!

The descriptions on Ebay is :  3x Röhre Telefunken 1U4 / DF904 für Batterie-Kofferradios, Akkord und Co., NOS

 

What is " Röhre " ???

 

 

if you compare your picture with my picture posted here

(look at the handwritten 1u4) it looks like beeing exactly the same tubes and/or source!

at the moment i am listening to 'CD21 - 111 Years Deutsche Grammophon  - HagenQuartett- Schubert- Beethoven' with the 'telefunken df904 mil spec - philips dl92' combo.

 

my first impressions were posted here:

the telefunken tubes have settled nicely, especially imaging and localisation are improved, at the moment there is nothing i would change, miss, add, so this combo is nearly perfect.

 

often when i listen to music so late (it's nearly 2:00 am now) i switch off all lights but keep my eyes open, it gives you a great feeling for the recording space, your ears fill the dark space your eyes see, you have the feeling you were sitting in the audience, the orchestra is playing in and endless room. a great experience!

You are making me salivate at the prospect of my pair coming GG. They ship from the US today so probably two weeks (it is much slower to ship from the US to Canada than it is from Europe to Canada!). The Mazda's should be here this week though!

I have popped back in the Siemens DF91's to go with the Phillips DL92's. I do love the transparency and air of the Siemens.

Sylvania + Mullards is a fantastic pairing. Full 3d presentation, palpable vocals, strings...yes. No loss of detail. Wonderful

Ooh, I will give that a try!

It is so nice to have other folks with the same tubes as me so we can compare notes!

How have you found the effects of burn in, how would you describe the change in sound since getting the amp?

Little change to my ears with burn in. The tubes settle in with a few hours of play but other than that I really just thoroughly enjoy the amp and the tubes.

And to say I thoroughly enjoy it is putting it mildly.

Oh thats wonderful! I am so happy your liking this amp. I think the Tera and My 801 have very similar sound traits and I feel they are made for this amp!

I think your approach is so healthy with this, just play music and enjoy!

I'm from Thailand but currently live in Japan.

For those waiting for the 06 and who don't follow Shikada San on Faceebook he left a message today saying there is a slight delay in production. From reading what he says I think he is just swamped with work.. Remember, he is a one man band!

Here is the message he posted..

I posted an enquiry on the Analog Squared Paper's Contact page 2-3 days ago and so far have not had a reply.  I'm glad that Shikada San is getting the recognition deserved for his exemplary work but I'm having second thoughts about ordering.  I was part of a Head-Fi organised group buy for the Thunderpants Fostex T50RP headphones and it was a disappointing experience taking 13 months plus the intervention of another Head-Fi member before actually receiving the headphone.  I wouldn't expect the same experience from Shikada-san but it is difficult when a small business becomes swamped by orders and the only mode of communication is email.
