    I'm after a cheap set of powers, I've 2 in mind, the ge 6as7ga, which I already have pair of but also interested in the thomson 6080, there's not a lot of info on these part from a review on tubemaze, has anybody used the thomson?.

    The saga of my Elise continues: If I don't get some sort of update either from Customs or USPS by next Wednesday I'm going to start a claim for a lost package. That Wednesday is 14 business days since my Elise left Feliks and 12 business days since it left Poland.

    Let me remind you I shipped this amp out on August 4th.

    Hi Scutey,
    You could look for the RCA 6080- sounds good and should be around $5 each if bought right. The RCA 6AS7G are very good and can be found for maybe $25/pair or less.

    Hi canthearyou,

    I have a pair of Foton tubes sitting in the US customs since Aug 16, 2017 - not a peep despite numerous inquires. However, PayPal sided with me and returned my payment.

    That is absurd! I am pretty much set on NEVER purchasing an item from overseas. What's funny is when I ordered from Shenzhen Audio my package went through customs and made it to my home in 7 days from China.

    Could you PM with the info you used to contact Customs?

    Thanks for your input mordy, I'll give the 6080's a look, the 6as7g's are my fave power tube, I was after an everyday tube so I will definitely give 6080 a look, at $5 each you can't really go wrong.

    mordy,

    I 'll go with your recommendation of the RCA 6080, managed to find 4 for £20, hopefully if my EL3N adapters arrive next week I can give them a run out with them. s-l1600[1].jpg

    Wow you have the patience of a saint. Get a refund and start anew.

    A few weeks ago I had tubes purchased on eBay seized by US customs. I was informed it was because electronic vacuum tubes contain mercury and the tubes were therefore classed as hazardous.

    I still have ZERO indication where it's at. Feliks Audio is helping to file a missing package claim.

    Hi H13,

    They must have mixed up the getter flash with mercury lol.....

    I hope you guys aren't getting fed up with my updates on my Elise Amp.

    Well, some possibly good news. After what I assume was the package floating across the Atlantic for 30 days it finally made it to America! Now it is being held in customs and will hopefully be released very soon.

    I'm certainly not fed up with your updates. On the contrary I sympathise with you and am glad you're closer to getting Elise.

    Yes indeed, the Elise/Euforia does like 6080 tubes. And I am a big fan of “coke bottle” 6AS7Gs...but this particular amp can sing with nice 6080s. I like the Tung-Sol/Chatham 6080, but the Mullard 6080 or CV2984 is absolutely great in this amp...
