For Sale:
1960 2-Star Philips Miniwatt E88CC SQ matched pair - ULTRA RARE !!!

Will Ship To: CONUS

You never see the early 2 Star SQ's and I have never seen a matched pair like this that also reads "import".

Print on one tube only shows one star...SQ and other star no longer visible. 

But it's not about the printing on these classic Philips Miniwatt 2-Star SQ's.  It's about the unique, full-bodied and

incredibly engaging mid-range they have.  So musical !!!  They are the best I have ever heard.  As close to

being with the  musicians in the recording studio as you'll ever get.

Add $8 for USPS Priority shipping (Continental USA only).  I'll eat the Paypal fee.

They were NOS when I bought them and I've put less than 300 hours on them.

Rare Holy Grail opportunity.  These are game-changers.  Heerlen, Holland made.

Price firm.

 

Here's what Brent Jessee says about them:

 

E88CC / 6922 Philips SQ type / Amperex PQ type, white label type, HOLLAND made, gold pins.MATCHED PAIRS

New Old Stock white box. Fabulous original 1960s vintage white label HOLLAND made Special Quality (SQ) or Premium Quality (PQ) type tubes. Ultra low noise, matched triode sections, heavily plated gold pins. Carefully matched to within 2 percent. These have been rated by audiophiles as as good if not better than the famous Amperex, and rivalling the famed Amperex 7308 white label tubes! Most are Philips SQ or Amperex PQ labels. Some are labelled for Mullard, Philips, Dario, RTC, Valvo or other brands, but all have the Philips Heerlen Holland factory code.

 

$230.00 per pair

 

 

Customer comments from Tube World about the Philips Miniwatt E88CC SQ's:

 

~~Customer Comments: ----------------- "I think my favorite tubes for listening to my classic old rock/popular music are the 6922 Phillips Miniwatt "SQ" Holland because they are ultra quiet and have glorious highs to match their glorious low/midrange." Customer Comments: ----------------- "Thank you for your sending of E88CC Philips Miniwatt Holland. These tubes arrived safely and sound great. Actually they bring my system in much higher stage, like heaven. Quiet, smooth, dynamic and 3-dimensional sound. Music has become real."
