Has anyone here tried the Philips E88CC from the 1960s? If so, what are your thoughts on it? Is it worth the high asking price?

Just a heads up, the deal on the Aune T1 on that group buy site which will go unmentioned for now looks like it may be looming once again, it is 19 votes away from an official response.

Well for those who may be interested, that new tube I was waiting for arrived a while ago and I've had no problems since then.

 

I'd suggest for anyone receiving one to fiddle with the switches on the base of the unit, even if you don't understand what they do they tend to change the sound quite a bit and your headphones may be better suited to one of the non-default settings. I believe they're for adjusting the gain, but frankly I couldn't relate what was stated in the manual to my headphone's specifications. Either way, they might help you out.

I began with 0 gain for my HD558s and they worked fine, but +10 gives more "oomph" without over pushing these.

Upgrade version means it comes with a better tube. Not worth it, honestly, better to collect some of the many well-reviewed tubes in this thread.

I ordered the basic T1 (with the cheap-o Chinese tube) and it came with the "upgrade" 6922 EH tube anyway. Even if you get the Chinese tube, it will probably cost less to buy a better tube from a reputable supplier than to pay the extra for the "upgrade".

I've got a Phillips E88CC but I doubt it's from the 60's. How can you tell? It probaly wasn't because it was "only" €20,00

FYI it's my favorite tube (compared to pcc189, the voskhod and the standard EH tubes) but that very subjective

Are the Mullard ecc88/6dj8 any good? I can get one for 25 euro or two for 45 euro. Is this a normal price? I'm using them with the AD2000 and I'm looking for either an even wider soundstage or a bit more bass. Either one will be fine.
