Getting back into Head-Fi. Found my old tube amp. Quick question.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

hey guys I haven't been into head-fi for a while because all my cans got stolen. I ordered a new pair and got my old DAC/Amp out. My amp is a Little Dot II++ and it's been sitting in the garage for a couple years with the tubes in a box. I was wondering if the tubes were still good or if they like go bad in the heat/time or something? I can't test it out because I need a new power cable and my headphones don't arrive for another week (i need ones with a 1/4" plug).

 


If so, could someone link me to new power tubes to buy for it? I've googled around and can't quite find what I need. The driver tubes are Mullard 161's and if those are bad I found more here: http://www.dbtubes.com/tube-detail.php?ID=2684

 

Thank you in advance, I'm looking forward to being back in the community!

Hopefully someone else confirms this, but I think your tubes should be fine.  I imagine most of the NOS tubes have been sitting in similar conditions for decades.  If they were in good shape when you boxed them up I wouldn't worry.
