    Any news of a successor to this at CanJam? Always wanted one but the price put me off, and now that I'm making enough money it looks like I don't have a chance any more.

    Just in case anyone has yet to see it, the carryall transport bags for the Pan Am stack are only $10 on the warehouse deals page!
  3. InebriatedGnome
    If only I had a Pan Am for the bags, I'd be gleeful right now! [​IMG]

    What's up Pan Am-ers! Anybody rolling any fresh tubes these days?
  5. TontonJoK
    Nop I'll try the Sylvania's from 1942 next month to compare with my tubes but it's about it
  6. Audio Reiner
    I've a lot tubes tested. At the end of the day I always come back to the Sylvanias and the AEG (Telefunken). Just now I hear the Telefunken.
  7. BattousaiX26
    Try Jan Ge 5654w very good tube for vocals :)
  8. Audio Reiner
    I have a new pair Telefunken tubes. Original military pieces. They are a little better than my AEG versions.

    I give them 10 from 10 points! The best I ever heard.
  9. TontonJoK
    You mean the regular branded Telefunken 6ak5W's ?? Hard to find around 40 or 50 $$
  10. Audio Reiner
    Yes, this one. I payed $45 for a pair.
  11. TontonJoK
    I'll try the Sylvania from 1942 but I'm pretty sure the Telefunkens will end up in the Pan am for a while again
  12. Audio Reiner
    Yes, i guess! I've such Sylvanias too. They are pretty good for voices or strings but the Telefunken do this job too and they sound stronger, bigger and more powerful. As I wrote, 10 from 10 points. The Sylvania are nearby, I give them 9 from 10 points.

    Guys, anyone still have the link to purchase mullards tube?
  14. TontonJoK

    I used to run on those Sylvanias, but recently I switched to my gold and platinum plated Voskhods. I sort of like them, so I didn't switch back for more than month now. I did some comparison with Mullards and Telefunkens, and even my girlfriend (who normally doesn't seem to hear difference) thinks Sylvanias and Voskhods are best (she actually pointed to Voskhods as her favourite, but she said it's about their looks - ya know gold/platinum looks great :D). So I decided to give another chance to Voskhods (which I previously considered not that detailed). I dunno, Sylvanias were very good, maybe too good, maybe too clinical. I got a bit bored maybe. Voskhods make me actually want to listen to the music. I tried Telefunken several times, but I got bored just after 1 minute of listening to them, so it's no go for me :)
