Probably(?) Foton, then, esp. if the tube type is inside the rhombus. Do you have a pic with the symbol? Ah, I see the type printed there. No clue base on that photo.

All my Fotons are like that. My 1966 Foton 6N3Ps are fantastic. 6N8S (6SN7 equiv.) are pretty good, too, esp. for the money.[/QUOTE

But I would say others may have different preferences in sound from their tubes than you do from yours. That however does not make your preference right and theirs wrong.

You could use that argument to suggest that crap tubes that Schiit supplies with their headphone amps are actually good tubes. Sorry, but the consensus is that the Voshkod Rockets are not great tubes and certainly not better than the '74 or '75 Reflektors. Just because one person disagrees does not make the Voshkods great tubes all of a sudden. But you certainly are free to live in your kumbaya world where every tube is great to someone....

I don't get you dude. 1 minute I really like you and value what you have to say, then this? But you certainly are free to live in your kumbaya world where every tube is great to someone....
It's like you have the biggest chip on your shoulder and it's the world according to winders.

There is no symbol that I can see, except for the rhombus and OTK symbol.

Have seen those before, not sure if I actually have any here, but no symbol, only the script below the date.
Maybe that's the brand identifier instead of the usual logo?
Don't think they are Reflector or Oktyabr, at least the construction details do not match the RFL or OKT I've seen.

True that Foton uses the rhombus, but the rhombus is also used as a military inspection stamp, usually with a number inside, and randomly placed.

Yes, that can be confusing. I did what I could to clarify :wink:

All the tubes have a 3 in the rhombus, 3 have OTK8, 1 OTK6.
Sheet looks like a spec sheet for the tube with no symbols.
I have a few pairs of them, same year, they're unbranded, probably for military export. I posted about them as my first post in this thread last year. They're the exact same internally as the '75 Oktyabr I have. The spec sheet is the same too.
