The comments from the Russian fellow, how even he can't find the '75s in Russia speaks folds. The word has spread aross the globe! What a world!

Now if some Russian garage sale scavenger would only come across a few dozen Holy Grails and throw them up on Ebay!

Cheers!!

 

I haven't forgotten about the comparison between the '74 Rockets (two pairs) and the late '68/early '69 Reflectors.  They all have a bit more than 100 hours on them, so they're good to go, once I find the time.  Rolled one pair of Rockets yesterday and was immediately struck by the low end power.  My feeling about the Reflectors is that they were somewhat rolled off down low, but had a nice, airy presentation.  But I'll pick a few songs and have a mini shootout soon... I hope.

hi, which tube do you guys recommend to go with LCD2.2 :biggrin:

 

Everybody's ears are different. What one person likes another doesn't, even with the same headphones and amp.

 

I would suggest you take a look at this website maintained by Brent Jessee to get an idea of the sonic signature of the various 6DJ8-type tubes. I have never purchased from this company but the feedback I have read is mostly positive.

Edit: And another very interesting take on these tubes:

Can you include your CCa as well? It would interesting to get your take on the differences.

I've pulled all my Voskhod Rocket ads from ebay. It's just getting to hard to find more good ones. I think I'll just put away the ones I have for awhile. Things are heating up between Russia and the Ukraine. McDonald's just announced they're pulling out of Crimea.

Oh yeah, we talked about that.  Sure thing.  I wish my brain was capable of comparing ALL my tubes ;)  It may not be for another week, though.

 

Hoarding for the lean times... 'tis a sad day... (I kid! :D)

I received a shipment from the Ukraine - 39 tubes. One '75 Voskhod Gray! I was so excited! Put it in the tester - DOA! Ugggg!

But I just found a '75 Silver 'Holy Grail' Supposedly NOS - now the 4 week wait - then the Testor... One can always hope!

WOW! Congrates!  39 out of 1 75 gray...that's jackpot you got there...who was your dealer?

I was checking out this amp(drolling really). But noticed it had the same basic design as the Lyr - Mosfet/6922 hybrid Class A. I really think this is an optimal design. How cool if Sch**t would come out with a 25-30w intregrated with that design, at an affordable price. A Lyr for efficient speakers. What would that do to the demand for 6922s?
I would buy one at $1K.

It was DOA - dead on arrival. Kaput! Worthless. Broke my fast beating heart! Sovtube. Why bother to even ship it? Just to play mind games! Probably took two shots of vodka and laughed his butt off for an hour.
