Well that totals $2660. Maybe some Mullards if you like that sound. $3000. With a thousand to spare!

no more amperex pinched waist on Audiogon. I checked..  :blink:

You're right both pairs gone. You don't see those often.

Well on tubeworld.com they rate the Lorentz West Germany CCa as 'only' the 4th best sounding CCa. 1st is the unobtanium '50s U getter Siemens CCa, then the '60s Siemens O getter halo (realistic 1st) CCa gray shields, followed by the Telie CCa '60s, then the A frame Siemens CCa late '60s (gray shield), then the Lorentz, then the Valvo Heerlen '60s CCa, then the '70s Siemens A frame Silver Shields CCa. So I kinda figured those top Siemens CCas had that base covered.

Now if one were to include all the above...you'd need significantly more cash then $4k! :-)

I don't see U getter now days, or D getter  The tubeworld has the picture of Dgetter but they don't have U getter pictures.  All those of tubes, The tubeworld don't carry now.

 

....no more money for me please...

Yes they are unobtanium! Kevin Deal has those Telefunken CCas for $566 on ebay. Those are very rare. Says in his ad they're microphonic! But I'd like to give those a spin in the Lyr.

I guess you weren't here during the Lorenz PCC88 boom. :rolleyes:

 

P.S. Tubeworld is a business...

No Philips production codes are visible on these tubes, so unless they are hidden in the photos, I seriously doubt that they were manufactured in the Heerlen, Holland, factory. As others have pointed out, it is unfortunately quiet common to see "made in Holland" or "made in Germany" printed on tubes when in fact they were made elsewhere. (>_<). While I don't know for sure, it does seem quite plausible that they were manufactured in a Matsushta factory on an old Philips assembly line. Unfortunately, by 1974, as the state-of-the-art was transitioning from vacuum tubes to solid state, most vacuum tube production was retooled to meet minimum standards as cheaply as possible. Even so, as they were manufactured on Philips equipment, they may well sound quite good, but likely different than the earlier tubes manufactured in Heerlen.
