Here are some Brimar CV2492. The seller has them listed as Mullard, but I can assure you they are Brimar. I have bought 2 pairs, from this seller already, and did not bother telling him, they are really Brimar.
Hey all, need some help. So I won the CV2492's that @Wes S posted above a few days ago. Then I just received this message from the seller below...

"As I started packing all eBay valves to be shipped, I noticed that the two valves you won coded ZJ have been sold previously in fact I sold other pairs of quad of E88CC on eBay the last weeks and have mixed up some of them in the listing, however it's not the end of the world since I have 9 more pieces E88CC I show you here, please feel free to tell me which one you like. The first 3 pcs from the left have codes WE WE WE; next 3pcs coded ZH ZH ZH; last 3pcs ZG YD YH. So sorry about that."

I've attached the pictures below and they do still look like the Brimar's but not sure what the additional lettering refers to. Does it matter? Anyone have any insight into what I should go with here? Thanks!

ZJ is the date code, mine have the same code 1968. The other 2 letter codes are just different date codes. Make sure they have AD after KB. That is Brimar Rochester factory code. Will show KB/AD. Get the best testing of the bunch along with low noise and microphonics.

Ahh. Thanks. They do all have the KB/AD label, so no worries there. I'll request the best testing of them. Thanks so much.

Ya, looks like the date codes would be
WE: 1965 May
ZH: 1968 August

I'm assuming I want a matched date pair as well?

I went with the WE's. And he said they tested great. Very excited!
Hopefully they are not noisy, with the high gain on the LP and the higher multiplication factor on that series of tubes, 396A, 2C51 some will be noisy.

Hey y'all. I just bought a LP and am excited! Is it possible to use a 12au7 to 7N7 adapter to run Sylvania 7n7s with this?

No the heater current is way too high for the LP. 6922 variants, ECC82 variants, 2C51 variants will work. 2nd and 3rd options with an adapter.

What's the best bang for you buck option? I like bass and details, if possible.

What's your budget? Open to tubes that require an adapter?

I'd like to spend less than $50 to $60 if possible. I am not opposed to adapters.
