    Yes, "try things out" is very import for this hobby.

    I should have read your post a little more carefully. I though you were going to buy those Mullard. Because a tube usually is more expensive if it has "Mullard" on it, and I just would like to suggest that there were many choices for 6080 out there and you can easily find good ones.

    Since you are lucky to have those Mullards already, enjoy them.

    My experience is that among each type of tubes such as 6AS7G, 6080, 7236, ect, the differences are not as much between difference brands as between different models. What I mean is that 6AS7G, 6080 tubes will sound more similar, but a 6080 tube and 7236 tube will sound more obviously different. I listened to 6080 tubes with and without copper rod, they sounded close to me, if there were any differences.

    Confirmed that this is what was received in last drop on massdrop for 650.00 :) Man, if yuking could get a decent website and communicate better with us folks in the states, I think he would do really well...

    All of the Chatham 6AS7G's I have in my collection have bottom getters and copper rods (made in the 50's I believe). That's the only thing I have experience with so I can't give any comparison to potential variants. I also like the black plate RCA's and Sylvania's (probably made by RCA) but the Chatham is my favorite. As far as RCA black/grey plate, check this thread:

    https://www.head-fi.org/threads/for-6as7g-tube-rollers-here.410326/page-261

    There's a couple of pictures that show the two. Black plates are older and all the bases I've seen have grey print. Grey plates are newer and all of the bases I've seen have colored print (mainly red). That 6AS7G thread is pretty good reading for all things 6AS7G/6080/5998/421A/6520/7236/etc

    Has anyone purchased the EF80 and EF86 adapters from Yuking recently? I had a conversion going with them, but it has kind of died. I haven't received a response in a few weeks. In the last response, they gave me a link to their online store that is not working.

    I'm considering buying a UPS to put the 339 on, in cause of power flickers. Anyone know the Wattage or Amperage of the 339?
     
  11. Mizicke5273

    I found the Wattage of the 339 back on page 90. I searched the thread earlier for watt and nothing came up. I just now decided to try my hand at what Google would turn up and I found this post linked on another site. So, I'll use about 100 watts in my calculations for a UPS.

    Hi Mizicke,
    the power consumption of the lf339 is roughly about 100 Watts but that's not count the high input current drawn by charging capacitors in 339 power supply at turn-on. I am afraid that 100W ups or any other AC power source will be too overloaded, triggering protection circuits in your ups and cuts the power off. I would not connect anything smaller then 300 Watts.

    Yeah, I was looking at at least a 300 Watt UPS and more likely something around 600 Watt. I just want protection from the power flickering on and off again with my amp, so I have time to power it down.

    Am a rookie here and have a question: Just to be sure, this adapter fit all input drivers on all LF339? I mean I can't find the '6SJ7' as part of my configuration. Is this equivalent with 6J4P? I'm interested as I want to change to a Telefunken EF80. All these numbers :). I'll learn it sooner or later :)

    If you have the La Figaro 339 with the 6SJ7 sockets, you will need an adapter to use EF80 tubes. An EF80 to 6SJ7 tube adapter is what you need to get.

    Randomly chime in and say that I have been very pleased with the La Figaro 339 driving both the HD650's and HE-500's.

    Plus, I mean. . .those tubes. . .
