    Where can I get the Tesla tubes?

    Agreed. It is stunning. I have some Amperex Bugleboy Holland made 6DJ8 in my Lyr 2 that I w
    Brent Jessee sells them. A quick Google search has lots of vendors. Mine was made in '72.

    Looking for opinions on the best tube for hd800?

    No. This is a power tube not a preamp tube. There are lots of good recommendations throw
    It the thread. I would recommend going through and reading them.

    Yes you can.

    I use a 6sl7 now and was just wondering if they would be any difference in signature.
     
  9. cebuboy
    Don’t how a 6SL7 sounds, but a 6SN7 sounds good with the HD650
     
  10. RustyPitchfork
    I stand corrected.

    HD800 and Vali2 are both very versatile and most tubes I have tried sound good with them.
    I would read about the characteristics of the various tubes in the Vali2 Forums and then try one or two which have the characteristics you seek as you are the only person who can answer your question.

    thanks. I've was actually surprised how good the stock tube was. The only markings on the side are 1239...can't find any info online.

    Greetings,

    I'm a bit new to tube rolling, I and am currently interested to try out a different tube, specifically the EH6922. I've stumbled upon this:

    https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https://www.ebay.com/ulk/itm/201493982849

    Forgive my lack of research, but there is only one in quantity and it seems to be what I'm looking for plus 2 other tubes. Is this a good deal? And more importantly are these compatible with the schiit vali 2?

    These are not only expensive, but not compatible. These are 12 volt tubed and you need a 6 volt tube. You are looking for a 6dj8, 6922, 7308, e88cc, e188cc, e85cc, cv2492, cv2493, 6n1p, 6n23p or 6cg7 tube. A 7dj8 should also work.

    Other tubes can be used with the help of adapters

    Do you know what kind of sound you are looking for?

    Edit:
    Oops, I just looked at the 12au7. 6922 are also available. Price for 3 6922 is fine, but why do you need 3?

    Oh wow, thank you, kind of feels like I dodged a bullet. I'm looking for something more warm I like the hum of the lower bass frequencies and I'm using a modi 2 which is connected to my pc via usb, songs are flacs / 320kbps mp3s and I'm using foobar2k with a graphic equalizer plugin
