Sanlitun is the Tele King !! He knows what he speaks of.

Hi guys,

 

Will these 2 x PCC88 (7DJ8) Telefunken Berlin NOS/NIB  tubes suit my HE-500 well? Getting them for 150$, good deal?

If you're looking for a pair of Telefunken tubes, perhaps you'd be better served sending a PM to billerb1. He just posted about a pair for $99. Probably won't find a better deal for such a great pair of Telefunken's- see post #885.

In that case, mercedesman has a pair on ebay. $10 more than the $150 you mentioned, atleast you'll be assured they will sound great. I don't have the HE500's, but Sanlitun does, and Telefunken is one of his favorites tubes with these headphones.

These are the one: http://cgi.ebay.nl/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=141138730371&ssPageName=ADME:L:COSI:NL:1123

 

If somebody who knows the Telefunken well can look at them, I would be very thankful :D Otherwise I'll look into Mercedesman. They are from '64 made in Berlin by the way.

 

Also found these: http://portugalradios.com/index.php?route=product/product&filter_name=pcc88&product_id=659

Lorenz PCC88. Are these the real deal or is the ITT Lorenz version not good?

Hi, yes those are real Telefunken tubes because they have a diamond <> bottom as per the Ebay pictures.

ITT Lorenz tubes do not sound as good as the real Lorenz Stuttgart tubes.
Some ITT Lorenz tubes were actually made by Blackburn Mullard with the "B" factory codes so they are warm sounding tubes in a good way. I really lucked out on these before!
The Mullard Branded tubes are usually much more expensive.
The other more common ITT Lorenz tubes were made by Nish Yugoslavia.

I have all variants of the tubes which I have mentioned here.

Will the Telefunken PCC88 be a good buy for 150$ or can I better buy the Telefunken ECC88 or maybe the E88CC? And do you happen to know how they sound exactly? I have the Amperex Orange Globes now but I would like a bigger soundstage with my HE-500. Thanks in advance! :)

Got some 1958 d-getter BBs from the man. They sound great even after only about 5-10 hours. They sounded closed in and congested at first (about 10 mins, little patience with new tubes). But after a couple of hours,they started to open up and already, they sound wonderful (and they will only get better); great bass, superbly smooth mids and nice realistic highs with lots of detail. 

 

I also got some 1960 BB large o-getters and I have to say I am having problems finding a favourite between the two. 

 

I think at this early point (again, only about 15 hours), the o-getters have smoother (wispier) highs, whilst the d-getters have a nicer, smoother mid-range. Both have very nice soundstage (both in and around the head, but not too wide) and female vocals particularly, sound sublime. Plenty of bass punch in both of them, with a nice bit of warmth too. They both sound very "tubey" to me. 

 

I find it so hard a/b-ing, cos once you have turned off the Lyr, let it cool down, taken one pair out, popped them in the nicely-labelled boxes, taken the others out of theirs and put them in, and given everything time to warm up, a good hour might have gone by. 

 

I am just loving every track I play right now. I can listen for hours without any fatigue. This is why I bought the Lyr and spent a small fortune on tubes.

I love the orange globe Aframes warm but detailed anyone agree
post #897 of 10862

I have Amperex Orange Globes too I like them but want bigger soundstage :-)

 

I'm thinking about getting the Telefunken E88CC with gold pins and diamond logo between the pins. They are from the 70's and I would have to pay 190 euro. They are from a tube store in Holland so they should be good. Good buy for the Hifiman HE-500?

The characteristics of my Telefunken's (mid 60's e88cc) are great treble clarity and extension, a relatively neutral presentation, and wide soundstage.

That's what I'm looking for :D How is the bass?

Well controlled and tight- the bass presentation seems neutral and true to the recording.
