Another recommendation on the sub $100 in my honest opinion should also include the 
NL Matsu****a 6922/E88CC Tubes

these things are amazing!


+1
With HE-500.
These tubes are very good, the sound has a lot of body, the soundstage is cool. Mids excellent.I only have three tubes for now (stock GE and Siemens ECC85 and Matsush!ta). These are my favorite (and the stock GE really the ones I like least). I was surprised that Matsusch!ta are not mentioned in the first post.

Is that could benefit from the new post that people who have tried several tubes put their preference ranking with some details, and the headphone used? That would be great !

OGs and Voskhod are the only tubes I have heard so far on my Lyr, so I was waiting for others to chime in with recommendations.  Are there any particular years that sound best?

Hi everyone.
 
Is anyone spotting Voskhod grey/silver 75 - 79 anywhere?
 
Thanks


Tbh, I wasn't finding them anywhere I was looking online. Not sure if they are unpopular or just hard to find.
 
Brent Jesse had some listed, but was out of stock.
 
I snagged the '79's from billerb before, so I will have 3 sets to go through. Obviously hoping the cheapest ones are the best ones, as the others I snagged were over $100 (Amperex, Siemens).

Here are my favorites with the Senn HD800:
 
1. Amperex 6922 Pinched Waists
2. Siemens & Halske CCa
3. Amperex USN-CEP
4. Siemens & Halske E88CC Grey Shields
5. Amperex Bugle Boy 1959 D-Getters
6. Telefunken E88CC; 1960's
7. RTC (La Radiotechnique) - both Heerlen and Suresnes, France versions
 
The ordering between #3 and #6 is not cast in stone - could shift around a bit.

What is the general consensus on the best tubes for the LCD-2s?

I do prefer a warmer sound signature with a wide soundstage as well, with nothing dry/over-analytical.

Yes, Suddenly this got popular, I was going to get that 79 but I step too late :
