Whelp...I just grabbed another pair of NOS 5998's...and I'm not gonna say how many I now have. :thinking:

My wife and I have a rule. She doesn't count my tube boxes and I don't count her shoe boxes. Still married, 31 years. :)

Cheers.
Congrats on the 31 years man or should I say sir. That is a very big deal!

My wife said to me just yesterday: "I notice you haven't been buying many tubes lately." The earnest look of concern on her face almost broke my heart. Then I reminded her of the four Russkies inching their way thru NYC Customs.

I did pull the trigger on the 6C8G adapters and 6C8G Tung Sols from India. Why not.
I'll wait until I can find a pair of the Ken-Rads instead of buying a single and hopefully finding another one.
Any comments on the Sylvania and RCA's 6C8G's? Or even the Unions and Nationals?

Bro you want some NUs I'll sell them to you, lol. They're airy/smooth but don't have much impact to say. Not my cup of tea.

I have 30 pairs of 5670/2c51/6n3p - about half of them are 6n3p variants, 24 pairs of 6922/6dj8/7dj8 variants, 3 pairs of 6c8g from different manufacturers, 82 pairs of 6n3p variants for sale, and then a few tubs of about 400+ random tubes of different varieties which I need to sort through, test, and sell....I also have a tub of about 100+ duds or low testing tubes from various batches.

What a sales pitch. LOL

Bwhaha! It's just that they don't work so well with the MCTH but may work much better with a more dynamic amp like the MJ2.

Your wife says things like that? What a sweetie. Mine's more like "More tubes? Are you serious?" Then I mimic her by explaining what a great deal it was and how much money I saved.... :money_mouth:

I might have a spare pair of Ken-Rad. I have a pair of RCA Marconi, huuuuge bottom end, relaxed top, not as detailed as the ken-rad, but if you like big bottoms, they're the tubes for you. :)

I can't count that high.
This is just the 9-pin and small octals, minus the recently acquired Foton stash. I'm too lazy to dig the big tubes out. :relaxed:




I detect no red flags. Healthy, "normal" audiophile. Enjoy your Legos.

After a quick inventory, I find about 50 pairs of nine pin and 4 pairs and half a dozen single octals…

Of course that was before I picked up these today;

As a group we have the tube market fairly well covered...

Any new holy grails in all them tubes? We ALL want to know. (After I get my fill first of course!)

That's where I got my Tung Sols. And you're right, I was shocked how quick the delivery was. Beautiful black glass tubes.

Edit: I could have sworn I only paid $60 for the pair and the matched pair on ebay is now showing $120. Maybe I'm deluding myself. Think Tony bought from the same seller...Tony, do you remember how much you paid?
You’re right Bill. I ordered those Tun Sols and they shipped in a matter of hours. Expensive but the free shipping and lightning fast shipping takes a bit of the sting away. Same with the adapters. They shipped in like 45 minutes. Incredible!!
