    Thank you very much for the feedback.
    i am not very satisfied with the stock tube.
    I have the sennheiser hd 600 btw.

    Chalk up another Gold Lion fan.  Although I already have these..

    Stock - ITT 6BQ7A (Japan)
                JJ6922 / E88CC
                EH- 6922  (2)
                Tesla E88CC
                EH- 6CG7
                National 7DJ8
                BEL E88CC NOS tube made in India in the late 60s/early70s (a Philips clone)

    Do you have the Standard JJ or the gold?
  3. rgmffn
    Standard. I'm not very fond of it.

    I found the gold to be remarkably different.

    Gold lion is one of New Sensor's brands. My previous experience with their products was spotty. I'm resistant to giving them another try.

    I can attest to a long burn-in helping the Gold Lion, when I first got it I thought it was fairly similar to the EH 6922 (haven't tried burning in that very long though...)
    But now that I have about 20 hours on it I tried A/Bing with the EH 6922 and I agree with rgmffn it is noticeably clearer!

    Just got my Gold Lion and fired it up today, all day. Phenomenal. Love the rolloff of the brittle highs, kick in the bass and widened sound stage. I also notice I have to (or get to :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:) crank up the volume more with this tube. Stellar, love it.
  7. rgmffn
    Yes!  I noticed this too!
  8. JoeKickass
    Happy Halloween Everyone!
    My Vali 2 was feeling the spirit!

    I just got the Reflector 6H23p-EB from thetubestore.com last night and this tube is definitely the best one I've used so far (I have Electro-harmonix, Gold Lion and Stock), it's just awesome!
    I'm not good at describing sound, but the reviews on thetubestore.com basically sum it up. I highly recommend this tube!

    Im still waiting on my adaptor to try my 6sl7. Man shipping from china sucks.

    The Russian 6H9C tube works fine and sounded good, warm and euphonic -but I won't be able to do any proper comparisons with other tubes as I'm concentrating just now on another amplifier. Also, I don't know that the 6SL7 is totally identical to the Russian 6H9C in every respect.
    It often takes 4-6 weeks for stuff to get to the UK from China, depends a lot on Customs..
    Sometimes they give tracking details, sometimes not- very hit and miss.

    I'm having a lot of fun with the NightHawk and the Vali 2 (w/ Electro-Harmonix 6CG7 tube)

    I guess the 6sn7/6sl7 doesnt glow much. It sounds wonderful.
