I dare not try because these came to me free of charge from the seller who sent me some bad Orange Globes.

At first I thought they looked similar to the stock GE tubes from Schiit, but not.

Just another GE 6DJ8 type. As long they tested good they are just fine. I have four pairs of these and they look exactly like yours. The stock GE tubes for the Lyr are usually the GE 6BZ7.

You can't make general statements about Bugle Boys and OGs because different years used different constructions and they don't all sound the same.


Totally agree. I loved the OGs with my HD650s, but found them a bit bright and forward with the HE500s.

 

Mullard CV4109/2492/2493 have lush mids, really good bass and a good treble with a slight sparkle on top. Great detail with a smoooth "thick" sound. They are also slightly "laid-back" and fit the HE500 perfectly, IMO.

 

YMMV.

 

Cheers. :beerchug:

Thanks man. 

I'll give 'em a shot when I'm done with the Bugle Boys. ;)

Does someone know these babies, Ediswan 6BQ7A?

Warm and balanced, I liked them for brighter cans.

Don't know if this has been posted before, but it's an engineer's take on the suitability of the 6DJ8 for audio:

I'm no engineer, but it's fascinating, as it's partly anecdotal.  I'd only correct this:

 

"The 6DJ8/6922 (µ = 33) appeared in the late 1960's designed for use in color TV tuners."

Currently using the Orange Globes with HE 500 & wondering if I should buy the Telefunken Ecc88. Have you tried the Orange Globes with the HE 500 ? Looking for a bit more Bass impact & wonder if the Telefunken Ecc88 will provide that ?

post #1150 of 11366
Yes they are more mellow less detail I enjoy both right now using telefunken that's the beauty of rolling trying different sounds, as of now if I had to choose one it would be telefunken if any one interested in some tubes pm me have to get my collection down

What kind of music are you listening? 

 

I am currently testing the Ediwan 6BQ7A cryoed (I paid around 45 € including transport), they are quite warm, have good basses and very forgiving with trebles, without loosing too much details. The mids are marevelous! The Ediwans a very good complement to my Siemens CCAs.

This has to be tested and I have a lot of candidates.... :L3000: , I am in the burn-in phase for the moment. I'll keep you updated!
