    lol, Don`t think I ever owned any Telefunken with a 4 seam top bro. do you have a real small tool to go over the diamond to see if it is a positive, legit? if its laser`d you will feel the tool or whatever dropping in the diamond. Asking a lot as its a real small surface.

    Just had a portable hard drive die on me, I blame the Indian Tele`s I`m burning in.

    I had a pair that were marked 12AT7WA for export markets. They were genuine 801s.

    Is the third mica transparent or opaque?

    Structurally it all looks legit. Third mica is translucent...you can see thru it. Also, they have the double getter supports. Short getter flashing and thin "O" getter.

    AC, everything checks out. Diamond feels "positive/raised" but hard to tell with an unfolded paperclip.

    Some older ones have an opaque mica, and have fat getters (there's another getter attached to the angled post on those ones).

    Kolkoo posted the various types a while back, there's quite a few variants, but I still have never seen another tube with the same construction as the 801s, so I don't think there's anything to panic about.

    Same can't be said for the 802s, and 803s unfortunately.

    What do you think of these cables?
    1.Pangea Audio AC 14SE MKII Signature Power Cable (1.5 Meter) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00V75CYL0/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_tai_ZhATCb3V78F8X
    2.Stratus 7 power conditioning cords https://store.wireworldcable.com/products/copy-of-stratus-7-power-conditioning-cord

    Or would you recommend the ones you listed over these?
    “heavyweight chords for power from the power conditioners” (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01L2SBWK...&pd_rd_r=c6c75fd5-5ff2-11e9-9672-417ebf68296c)

    Thank you!

    Just got last link ones today, to say they are not thin is a gross understatement.

    Pangea are good cables, I just got the ones I linked to for the weight and price. Either will be a better result compared to a stock cable, I doubt you'd be able to tell the difference between the two in terms of sound tbh.

    The ones I got are actually quite a bit thicker than your average garden hose.
