    Thanks, @mordy. I think I may go with a more "tubey" driver (1950's era Sylvania or RCA) and see if I achieve that synergy. I am impressed with the 7236 overall for tone, timbre, detail and stage, and with a dollop more euphony would be perfect for my preferences.

    I have the TS 7236 as well and I found it a bit ss as well, as you rightly say a warmer driver will help, long with Sylvana's, and RCA,s others worth looking into might be the National Union CNU 6SN7 GT, I find it warm (ish) with very good bass, another worth thinking of are Ken rad and also the EL3N, from what I remember goes well with the 7236 (adapters needed), also have you tried the search facility on this thread?, might be worth go if you haven't, as all the major tubes have probably been tried at some time.

    Yes @Scutey, the "search" facility on this and the 6SN7 thread have been really helpful, as have responses from the cognizanti like yourself, @mordy, @OctavianH and others. I am actually enjoying the TS 7236 but know that longer term I'll want to complement them with a slightly more "tubey" driver that doesn't detract from the great stage, realistic timbre and detail retrieval the Tung Sol's bring to the table. So we roll on...:o2smile:

    I've heard mixed things bout ebay sellers for tubes...people promoting meaningless test results and / or relabeling low value tubes as something else. Is it best to avoid them all or are there some where in your experience the probability of an honest transaction is high?
     
  6. OctavianH
    Hard to say, I was lucky enough to buy my expenssive tubes directly from collectors, so no ebay auction in my case.

    Scutey and chrisdrop like this.

    That's the starting price/opening bid amount, and you'll note that the sellers minimum price has not yet been met. Also add shipping and sales tax.....

    Hm, I did not knew that you can have a starting bid amount smaller than the sellers minimum price. I mean I do not really understand what logic it has, only maybe to make the seller aware of lower offers and if nobody reaches the minimum price maybe he can decide to sell it for the best lower offer?

    A seller can set a minimum price, then set a reserve price any amount higher then the minimum. The idea is to set a low minimum bid to get the bidding started. Whenever I sell on eBay (which is not too often anymore), I always set my starting price at $.99, and I don't use a reserve. I find that a higher starting price along with a high reserve discourages potential buyers from bidding.

    For ****s and giggles, I'm going to put this one on my Watch list, just to see how it progresses.

    I shall keep my eye on it too, it will be interesting to see what it eventually goes for as my Elise was bought used from ebay for £480 2 years ago.
     
  12. chrisdrop
    Sounds like a pretty great deal.

    If there is any interest..
    I have posted classifieds for 2x each :

    C3g
    EL32
    7N7 tall bottle

    They all have FA (Elise/Euphoria) adapters, as well.

    :)

    It was indeed, seeing the price this one has reached already, mine seems like a bargain!.
     
  15. Preachy1
    HIya folks. I reached out to the eBay seller to ask what the reserve is. He stated that it is 700 GBP (I don't know how to type the symbol for Pounds Sterling). So any bids at or above that amount will automatically make it a sell-able event.
