Thought I’d just drop in and say hey fellas.
*******************Hey!!!********************
Been a while since I’ve posted. I read what you guys post daily but just don’t have much to contribute to the thread.
I haven’t even dipped my little toe in the water on these 12Au7, 6201, 12at7, espn, CNN, etc......tubes.
Does anyone at all even slap in a 2c51, 6n3p or E88CC tube anymore? Lol. I guess a better way to put it and the way I feel, I’m still driving a 68 Pinto while you guys are ripping around in a 2019 Ferrari.

Well anyway, hope all you guys are doin well!

Peace!! :v::call_me:

The difference ain't that earth-shattering man don't get me wrong I enjoy the 12at7 and 12au7 (rocking fivre ECC81 in my lyr2 setup at work and Fivre ECC82 in my Mj2 setup at home) but i do occasionally slap my besties from the 6922 family (I do not slap any 2c51 like ever - gotta sell my stash xD i got some rare beauts, then again I invested sooooooooo much time and resources in obtaining and finding my personally favorite 6dj8/7dj8 tubes).

I just purchased a matched quad of the Reflektor 6N23P SWGP '75 tubes ("HG"), based on the 'other thread'. They are coming from Russia and have not yet arrived. In the meantime, I noticed this thread and it seems people are now moving away from the 6922 family altogether and some are even posting somewhat negative comments about the "HG's". So, I contacted the manufacturer of my power amp (its a hybrid, using four 6922's on the input stage) and he indicated that these 5670, 2c51, 396A tubes are not safe substitutes, so unfortunately I cannot join the fun.

That being the case, are the "HG's" now considered meh tubes? My amp currently has a quad of Bugle Boys, which I really like. The other tubes I have been looking at are 60's Siemens E88CC/6922.

What are your current 6dj8/7dj8 favorites? I thought I saw a comment from you in a thread where I thought you liked the HG's, but I could be mistaken as the threads/posts go on forever and I could be mistaking you for someone else.

Any thoughts are appreciated.

Check those Reflektor for noise straight away and test them on a tester if you have one or know someone with 1. They are good tubes but they don't live up to the hype you read about.

Which seller was that?

As to the HG's...one of the best PR jobs ever IMO. But it's all personal preference and system dependent. You may love them.
Little bright and edgy for me. Very good definition though.

The seller was 'brandmix19'. I don't have a tube tester. I would need to send them to tctubes.com or some other place for testing.

Still rockin' my Foton triple micas often. My go-to flotilla now is the Fotons (see my Foton Torpedo avatar lol), Valvo 6201 PW's, Heerlen foil strip 50's D-getters, Heerlen 1960 6211's made for IBM, Telefunken E188CC's and Ivan's 7L4 red Heerlen Valvo D-getters. They're all great in their own idiosyncratic ways.

Thanks for the input. Bright and edgy is not appealing, but we shall see. We all hear things differently, etc. To clarify, you think the OP of the 'other' thread was being dishonest?
