6N1P gold grid
Mostly matched pairs.?
If you search this thread and the original Lyr thread, you will find that 6N1P do not get much love, so strike off 4 tubes. Other than one private email telling me that the 6N2P sounds terrible in the Lyr, I have found nothing regarding the 6N2P. So you should probably strike off one more tube. The GE 6BZ7 can be purchased very cheaply and it doesn't get much love either, so strike off another tube. The PCC189 / 7ES8 also hasn't gotten much love, so strike off another tube. The PCC85 / 9AQ8 has 9 volt heaters, so this one is questionable, so strike off another tube.
So.... let's see.... this leaves the Brimar, Lorenz, JJ, Amperex and Valvo for 200 Euro.... You might want to check eBay for comparable prices and then decide if this is a good deal....
