    The build on these are very nice and liking the gold colored rods, will be comparing these with the other 6080 I own and hoping to get acquainted with said highly "musical" discription from other reviews mentioned about these Gold Brand 6080 tubes. Any suggestions on which driver to pair these with?

    So my very first impressions of the tubes is that they offer very low gain, these will favor best on a multiple setup like a La Figaro or Woo Audio setup. But you can still get a flavor of the "musicality" of these tubes, very warm, for a power tube. Gonna roll some bright preamp tubes to see what gives

    They might pair well with higher-gain preamp tubes like 6C8G's that work with your 6F8G adapter.

    I'm a bit disappointed, maybe it's been my mistake or not, i bought these onese on ebay https://www.ebay.it/itm/283571425815 when I tested them both today, they have distortion, should i send them back?
     
  6. JKDJedi
    If they have distortion then yes. I'd grab one of them NOS tubes, they're tough.

    Are these 6SL7? If so, that’s a different tube than the 6SN7 and not a substitute in the DarkVoice.

    JediMa70 - if you have a darkvoice amp...these tubes you bought are 6SL7, not a substitute for the 6SN7...maybe thats why you are getting distortion.

    Well so it's my fault.. bad. I almost burned my darkvoice here it's my post of few days ago https://www.head-fi.org/threads/alm...need-help-to-check-test.912917/#post-15122379 so to be safe i replaced the power AMP with a RCA 6080 and I was planning to do the same with the other one, but I get confused about which are the ones that will work beside 6SN7 and where to find them at a reasonable price, I'm italy and it's more complicated to find them. I 'm just using ebay.. so any help is extremely appreciated

    The 6C8G will play well with the Darkvoice?

    If your Darkvoice is unmodded, then yes. They do play well with the Darkvoice (same voltage requirements as the 6SN7 and 6F8G). The only thing is that their amplification factor is 1.8x larger than that of the 6SN7/6F8G's, hence why I mentioned that they were higher gain. I've used 6C8G's fine with my Tung-Sol 7236's. I don't use mine much now because their higher amplification factor plus the higher gain from my Fitz-modded Darkvoice is a bit too much in the gain dept. It seems that I'll have to mod my Darkvoice again.

    I just noticed the last Tidal update on my PC turned off Exclusive Mode and Force volume. And that the volume level was at half. o.O Whole week wondering what the heck was wrong with my gear..I'm taking a break.

    So I just bought a bundle of different tubes for the DV from a seller on r/avexchange. this is what's coming;

    Raytheon JAN 6080
    GE 6080
    Tung Sol 7236
    GE 6AS7G
    RCA 6SN7 (x2)
    KenRad JAN-CHR-6SN7GT
    TungSol JAN-CTL-6SN7GTA
    Sylvania 6SN7WGTA
    Hytron JAN-CHY-6SN7GT
    RCA 6SN7 (smoked/grey glass)

    QkkLHWr.jpg smzjIsL.jpg

    Got all of these for $100... Did I do good? Any decent ones out of this lot I should try first once I receive? I already have a TS 7236, but all the others are new territory for me.
