Who knew! All this time, I thought that 6DJ8/ECC88 was not worth my time and inferior, compared to the 6922/E88CC and 7308/E188CC, but that has completely changed. I don't know why, but d getters and sqaure getters, always sound better, than o getters. The Bugle Boy Holland ECC88 d getter, is blowing my mind! I am waking up a couple of hours earlier, and racing home after work, to listen with these amazing tubes. The vocals are perfect, the stage is huge, detail, air and resolution are top notch, there is organic warmth, and the freaking bass is insane. I am a basshead, and have never ever had to turn down the volume, because of too much bass, and it is usually the other way around, meaning I usually have to turn up the volume to get the bass where I want it. However that is not the case with this tube. The bass hits so freakin hard, I literally thought I was going to blow out my ears! However, it never muddies up the mids. This tube can't be beat, for the price. Another positive thing with this tube, is that I have more range on the volume control, as in I listen at around 9 to 11, instead of 8;30 to 9, which is a big plus with the LP's gain issue. This tube seems a bit warmer than the Brimar CV2492, but also has better resolve, so it is a win win for me. Overall, this has been a hell of a tube roll, and this tube is a keeper. Happy hunting and rolling!
