Question E180F triode-strapped.

Hi,

I'm looking for curves of a triode-strapped E180F/6688.
Can any of you guys help me ?

Thanks
Jim

Hi,

Hmmm...A TL preamp fan in the making?

Google turned up zip, Jim?

Maybe TL himself can help you out here...

If I find useful stuff I'll let you know.

Cheers,

Hi,

Thank you all.

I'm going to use it in my PP807 amp.
E180F -> 5687(split load) -> 807(pentode mode).

Jim

Anyone have an opinion on what a E180F/E280F sounds like in triode mode?

TIA,
Bas

Don't I've ever tried the E280F but the E180F sounds very good, detailed and with very well focussed imaging.

I use that one now instead of the EF86...I still have some TFKs...

Cheers,

Hi Frank,

Thanks..Oneday I shall build a 2a3 se amp..and I was thinking of driving it with something "unconventional" ...

Anyway..this future project will be the first where I will really listen and try out different drivers.

In the past I just used a 6n1p..but since tube o snobs hate this tube..I want to try lot's of goodies..and hear for myself.

Want to build a sort of experimenters platform with say a resistor, choke, and CCS... for the driver stage...and switch between say, 6SN7, E180F triode, E180F penthode..bla, bla, bla..


Cheers,
Bas

When I used it, one careless tap and it would ring for hours. Check for microphony!
