    Quote: This is a common problem with all tubes even brand new they can be bad from the factory this is not brand dependent. Firstly no one will want them if they are hissing that is a sign that one will be go out how long who knows there is not gurantee with tubes. Now consider the fact...

    Quote: My take on this tube is simple variable Mu, high distortion characteristics, was used as a UHF radio tube just throws so many red flags I would never roll it even if they are dirt cheap...   Sadly at the same time you can once in a purple and pink moon find tubes that are the...

    Quote: Well you need to find out what he means by this "A better tube would be the 6922 early 1960s vintage Siemens from Germany."       Bottom line is the CCa's are the best in whatever flavour one chooses if he is trying to pass off E88CC siemens for that price he is out of his...

    Quote: Don't forget the Tesla E88CC's you can pick these up at very good prices and they are very good tubes. They are highly regarded tubes and not expensive.  I would say this that the Tesla's are IMHO best for closed headphones and have awesome bass but it all depends on your signal...
