This pair of Tungsram E88CC's are one of the best sounding vacuum tubes my Lyr 2 has recently lit up. Won them at ebay auction for $47 last year, and a backup pair for $30 last week. Notice the Red 0 on top of tubes. "Tungsram Code Readers", can you identify what G6 means? Great sounding vacuum tubes don't have to cost $375+!

 

Note: Metal stamps are 2, and 4.

Anddddd I am out lol

My Yggy, raggy and my speakers arrived so I am super broke anyway

 

PM me on when you got your yggy...how the burn in is going...etc, etc.  We'll compare notes.  You have SO much new stuff that it might be hard to know where the yggy ends and the raggy starts...and where the raggy ends and the new speakers start.  Your mind might just explode.  I'm having the same problem with having gotten in the new yggy and a used pair of HD800S's.  At least the HD800S's I know are burned in.  It's hard being an audiophile.  Damn hard.

What's the wisdom in Head-Fi now, $400 tubes in a LYR 2 or upgrading to a MJOLNIR 2 with $50 Amperex Orange Globes? Assuming my headphones are Senn HD 800 SD and Hifiman HE-560? 

post #12697 of 12724


spend the money on the Mjolnir 2 - it has a gorgeous sound and pumps out a bit more power too if you choose to change 'phones...

And then get the tubes later...

Mmmmmm

And pic 1 tube on right seems to have a straight getter support?

Can you ask the seller (or buy them) and let us know?

Those tubes, based on the code, are from 1962. My 1962 Telefunken CCa tubes have some differences. The getter support on mine are at a 45 degree angle and do not have the indent in them. The "CCa" on my tubes does not have a capital "A". The lettering is no where nears as perfect either. My 1962 Telefunken CCa tubes do have the fat getter ring which have a slightly different construction than those that do not. The lettering and getter support concern me but the tubes do have the diamond with a number on the bottom. I don't have enough data to make a call.....

No way I`m buying from that seller, I think them may be freshly printed CCA on a much cheaper E88CC tube. Since they both look identical, hard to determine for sure, without buying them and listening for myself. All my Telefunken tubes were not perfect print. In my experience Telefunkens are the easiest to wipe off the print. Along with Amperex paint and Siemens paint. Valvo is the most durable imo.

100% agreement on all counts. That CCA print is total bs. And you'd never find real Tele Cca's for a BIN price that low.

The BIN price is $558.15. That is high as far as I am concerned. I bought a matched pair of Telefunken CCa tubes with the fat getter and gold through rods for less than half of that price.

You got some good mojo going to get them that cheap, usually see them $500ish or up to a grand.
