    I'd give the Tung Sol at least a week worth of listening, I have tubes I just listened for an hour and put away, then 3 months later..."Where were You my whole life"! :D That's what I'm doing now, a different 6AS7 tube a week.

    just popped in a sylvania NOS 7236. Im starting to think there is something wrong with my RCA 6as7g, either that or this sylvania is just amazing.

    Was able to get my hd6xx order in today. can wait to here these paired up.

    Lol.. Nice! Ive read 7236 sound closer to solid state amps, user here says its his favorite, (ggillies). And the HD6XX are just PHENOMENAL with the Darkvoice, your sitting in the middle of the music, a great match.

    7236 are the real deal for neutrality.
  10. ggillies
    Yup.. For the type of music I listen to, which needs decently fast transients (rock, EDM) the 7236 is my pick, closely followed by the Chatham JAN CAHG 6AS7G, which is a tad warmer.

    Hey all, I know there is a lot of info in here but after pages upon pages of reading, there's almost too much!

    Just wondering some of the favorite tube combos for the HD 6xx specifically? (Other HP's are low impedance, matching with them not much concern)
    Not looking to spend 100 on a tube I will say, damn Canadian dollar right now..

    Cheers! :)

    I don't have the HD6XX but I have the HD650
    And I also don't have the DV but I have the La Figaro..

    7236 make the relaxed sounding HD650 more detailed without adding more bass or mids, currently using some Russian 6H13C and the midbass is overwhelming.. love it.

    I disliked the GE 6ASGA - with the HD650 - but you may like that if you really want that overemphasised, laid back, syrupy tube sound.

    I have the HD6XX and if you want the best non expensive combo for the HD6XX with that TUBE sound.. I mean that's why we got a tube amp, right? Get the RCA 6AS7 or Philips JAN 6080WC (Power) with an RCA Grey Glassed 6SN7 or NEW Tung-Sol 6SN7GTB (Preamp), Either combo will run you under$60 and turn the HD6XX into Premium sounding Cans. Again..non expensive.. Don't judge my picks.. :D (Honorable mentions go to anything GE or Sylvania made 6SN7 or 6SN7 variant)

    Absolutely I do want the "tube" sound, I have other cans for more in your face detail and bass. I haven't found these for that great of a price yet, but I will keep checking!

    Thanks both of you for your help. :)

    Just saw you have one of my most looked at headphones I'd love to have one day, are your Ether the closed version? And oh snap! You have the THX 789 Triple A amp.. NICE!
