back on track???
I've listening to a 1972 La Radiotechnique pcc85/9aq8 that I got from mhamel. He told me that although it has a 9V heater it runs fine in the Aune T1. Apparently not all versions of the 9aq8 do. I can confirm that it runs fine and sounds great. I just did a quick check with some femaie vocals (Joni Mitchell, Jennifer Warnes) and some acoustic music (Joshua Bell and Edgar Meyer). Not sure I would prefer it over the 1969 Amperex OG 6dj8 I also got from mike, but it will stay in my T1 for a while. I would look forward to impressions from those with better ears, I'm new to tube rolling.
I poked around on line but could not find a source of this particular tube on line. mhamel may have some more.
