Guys, I hear what Bill hears with the ECC801S. I trust his ears, he hasn’t steered me wrong yet. Those tubes are the best I have heard to date.

My backup pair of Tellie 801S have also shipped from India. I hope whoever bought pair#19 just before I did, enjoys them :p

@billerb1 I am curious if I hear what you do with these and it’s a pair I have been wanting to try.[/QUOTE]

What I hear is incredibly liquid, enveloping and with sense of realism I haven't heard before on headphones. Other than that they suck.

I think I have an extra getter laying around...:grinning:

If it's a D or square getter I'll take it. Those always sound better than round getters.

Ya, pair #19 had one of the highest or highest Gm ratings.
But what about the “Ia” measurements listed? I’m presuming that is gain , but not sure. Just not noted as “mu”

Frustrated, I’ve done several searches to find exactly what the “Ia”means, can’t find any confirmation.
Anyone know for sure?

la is emissions, mu is gain. Pair 19 was the tightest matching in Gm and high testing. Not critical as I have seen some wacky testing pairs that sounded fine. But when pairs are like that, grab em.

Have not used the 6201 Valvo Hamburg PW 59's in several months, forgot how engaging they are. What an excellent tube. Have them in until those Telefunken ECC801S come in this week, think I am going to really like those. Anybody have any GEC 2900A's for sale? Doubtful but had to ask.

Here's one for $80 with free shipping. Is that a good price?
