    Tube quality was at its height at that time due to the West being locked into a Cold War power struggle while simultaneously fighting a proxy war in North Korea, while ppl back home were building underground bomb shelters. Preparedness was the name of the game whether it was tubes or shelters.

    Damn straight. Good numbers. The pic shows a pair of the anti-vibe TMs under the new TM 12xxx/ECC88 adaptors. I did the same thing as soon as I got the adaptors. Later this week I’ll just use the adaptors (OOTown right now) to hear an diffs

    We used to write coded messages directly on the tube, then coat them black, & finally then hand off to the asset at the audiophile meetings (& ya, Fotons were the best to use for a variety of reasons). Worked for us.

    I'm not so sure that is carpet, fellas. Looks more like they found a dead rat in the basement and used it as a prop. :sweat_smile:

    Put a pair of Tungsram NOS 7DJ8 tubes in .... has a big full sound fleshed out to every edge of the huge SS. The SQ is a tad soft, but as I said, it is fleshed out, giving a sense of presence and continuity. Kind of like the Amperex 7308s IME. Also dead quiet. Sounds best with modern (eg...

    The AK320 thread

    IME, very chip-dependent. I went with the 320 b/c I like the chip and overall SQ of the AKM chips. I think the 320 has the 4480. More of a SQ with more natural tones with broader and rounder (than the 240/380) notes and a sense of presence. Soundstage is spot on. Has a lil warmth. The 240...

    Ya, 6922s deserve more credit. Right now I have a pair of the Amperex 1960 USN-CEP (USA) tubes in the amp. Works for me, and no CC adaptor that will downgrade SQ. All the ECC81/2/3s are good, but IME , in my set up, the 6922s and CCAs sound the best. Also recently, Valvo 6922s ( TKs right, from...

    A couple dead bodies? .... Well, that is still better than disposable underwear! :confused: I haven’t seen anything definitive in terms of SQ. But it seems that smoothie plates tend to be more rare, and therefore a higher price. Some people said the smooth LONG plates are better but I’ve read...

    I mean, those rare earth metals that they put in the tubes in the 50s .... that schist is expensive these days. As we know, they just don't make the tube internals like they used to. Smoking' rare earth metals, that's the the best high! :bulb:

    I did a google search for best vacuum tube 6922. It took me to a couple places, https://www.head-fi.org/threads/6922-tube-review-17-top-6922-6n23p-e88cc-cca-7308-e188cc-tubes.761078/ and http://hktubeaudio.homestead.com/files/6DJ8.html The Hong Kong Audio Club did a tube shootout. I don't...

    I received a nice pair of 60s 12au7s, RCA for Hammond, sound great. Pretty clean from top to bottom, though there is extra sonic info in the lower mids/upper lows that can get muddy/smeared depending on the recording,etc. these tubes have a bit of a V dip in the mids, and energy is skewed...
