Default My 6N23P tubes

OK, from advice from learned people here, when replacing the chinese tubes in my amp, I first purchased some VOSKHOD 6N1P's. These were nice and I have been listening to them for some time. Noticeably better than the chinese tubes.

Then someone suggested 6N23P tubes were the best of the breed, or true ECC88's. So I grab 4 from an ebayer. I expected all of them to be VOSKHOD rockets, as pictured, but only 2 where. The other 2 were REFLECTORs. I don't minds this stuff up as I get to audition a great variety of tubes.

I can often suffer from psychosomatics, where I expect or want a tube to sound better or sound a certain way. Especially if I have been waiting a month for post from Russia. If I am suffering now, so be it. The REFLECTOR tubes sound great. The same or marginally better than the VOSKHOD 6N1P's. I have yet to audition the VOSKHOD 6N23P's.

My cheapass multimeter also made it from china, which means I can now start risking death and loss of fingers inside the amp

Smile 6n23p

i use 6n23p with boxed anodes voskhod 1972 otk in my parralen se amp with dual sv83 end stage and it sounds amazing , i tryed 6n1p ev and tesla e88cc goldpins [made in techoslovakia in the good old times ] nothing to see with the jj crap that comes nowadays from there ,
in a other se sv 83 amp a tesla e 88cc sounds the best .and in my set kt88 amp a 6n1p ev [1977 voshod otk] sounds the best ,i use led biasing for these tubes in all my amps
it just proves it the combination of the tubes what makes the sound good
with some amps the 6n23p will sound better by a other the 6n1p ev
most inportant is you use good quality tubes from a good production year
grtz seel34
