Hand wash and rinse in the bathtub.
I’ve done that while traveling in other countries but had no softener...let’s just say there was a bit of chafing...😂

Bendix 6080 (solid graphite) + Sylvania 6J5GT (gray plates)

I’m really fond of their sound.. punchy, warm, tubey.. like analog tape, “house sound”. I like them with the 5998 for more high end and better dynamics or the Bendix for a more moving low end. Absolute killer pairing for any kind of electronic based music.

Working from home? nice monitor. :) Sick volume knob. Those 6J5 seem taller than the norm.. How they compare in size to the other glass 6J5 you have?

There are some pairings that I'm loving:

Melz 1578 and Chatham 6as7g.

RCA 6as7g and GEC L63.

Mullard 6080 and GEC L63.

GEC CV4079 and Sylvania vt231.

There are still many other combinations to try, but I haven't had the time yet.

I want to comment that I am impressed with the sound of the Melz 1578, now I understand why some people consider it as one of the best 6sn7.

How does TS BGRP compare to them?

Yes, it’s an LG ultra wide. One of my better investments. I’ve had it for about four years now. I’ll send you one of these knobs, it came in a two pack. I like the grip and it’s quite functional. My other knob was larger. I may go back to it and see which I prefer.

These are the same sized 6J5GTs. Maybe the photo made them look taller.

Would I be correct in thinking "it ain't supposed to look like that:disappointed:"

The instructions clearly state "Some assembly required." What, you aren't fluent in Chinese? Sheeez. :smile:

Yes, it arrived this way. Something very heavy crushed it on its journey. But there wasn’t much protecting it. I’m going to try a different seller.
