Philips was a major tube maker but Philips also bought (the relevant part of) Sylvania and called it Philips ECG.
Ten years? It's been fecking 20 years. God, I'm old. :slight_smile:

What's ten years? Still an awesome song.
Yeah, that is a good question.
Still lurking in the shadows. Multiple iterations behind in several ways... Hei, I'm slow! Hope you and the fish are good, buddy.
Best wishes with the problems there, sir!
Yep. The shape and construction are quite unique.
[Just a note that there are quite nice looking Chinese replicas of these:...
Or you could say that the Miniwatt-labeled ones are, in fact, GEC tubes.
AUD 43.37 in 2018 money according to https://www.rba.gov.au/calculator/annualPreDecimal.html.
No difference. Mullard made those tubes. Philips owned Mullard.

I've been wondering myself but have no theory yet. I'll let you know if that changes.
Yep, it's nonsense. Otherwise your external hard drive (etc.) wouldn't work. But not all rippers are created equal, especially with CDs in bad...
I'm in the bit-perfect is bit-perfect camp. More bit-perfect does not compute.
No, I don't think that they are Eindhoven tubes. Those are earlier Mullard-only codes. Don't read them as Philips codes like that. The 3A1 may be...
I agree that they probably are French. Surely the Darios must be 1956 tubes with a YY.WW date. The other numbers are less clear…
