My pleasure! You know . . . while you're shopping . . .you might also consider the Tesla's (a great bargain IMO) and the RTC's. Excellent tubes both, and both provide a different sonic experience compared to the OG's

Tesla E88CC Gold Pins. RTC (La Radiotechnique), not RCA. Any flavor of RTC is good, although I prefer the Tesla's. Another good choice would be Valvo E88CC's - either Gold Pins or Red Labels. They both sounded excellent with both the LCD-3 and HD800 - the Red Labels were slightly better with the LCD-3's; the Gold Pins were slightly better with the HD800.

Stupid iPad auto correction, I heard of RTC cool.gif will do good people.

Now anyone care to share some eBay seller they have good experience with beside Mercedesman6572? Or stores that sells them at reasonable price?

Thetubestore.com also has the Teslas.  It's also where my Russian tubes came from.  Go back a few pages and you can see my opinions on both in my setup.

Just rolled in my Amperex 6DJ8 Orange Globes and National Matsu 6922 this week, I had the JJ E88CC and Russian 6N1P from Schiit before. Here are some impressions:

 

The JJs:

Fairly bright set of tubes, and a bit light on the bass. Tolerable on the HD650, but almost sibilant on the HE-500. Fairly decent at retrieving that micro-detail, but almost too fatiguing.

 

Russian 6N1P:

Much better sounding and musical than the JJs. Brings back the bass, and some fairly decent mids. The highs are a bit rolled off, but not lacking at all.

 

Amperex OGs (Halo Getter, 1969):

High extension without being sibilant, a nice, deep, and tight bass without being overpowering. Very well balanced, and euphonic sound. Its not the most neutral, but I find it colors the sound in the right way.

 

Amperex OGs (A-Frame, 1973):

Very very similar to the 1969 OGs, however I found the Halo-Getter has a deeper bass extension than the A-Frames. The A-Frames have not been burnt in yet though. 

 

Matsu 6922:

Not sure how to describe these, they sounded fairly flat and neutral, but rolled off at both the extremes. Found it too bright with some tracks, but found it too bassy on others, almost like they have small humps at the mid-bass and mid-high regions. Probably need more time with these. Out of all the tubes, these were the only new tubes, all others had some hours on it already.

Here's where I picked up my Tesla's:

Takes a little while from the Ukraine, but the seller has been reliable for me.  I liked the first set so much I ordered a second set.  Both received with no problems (again, it may take several weeks).

Just curious... I have seen OGs with halo getters (late 1960s) and A-frame getters (1970s). Which do you have?
