Hi Karsten!

I've just emailed Thomas to have more news. Hope it will not be overpriced too much!

Thanks a lot!

No, I won't, sorry...

Best regards

Hi,

I receive the answer but the price is to high for me...but who knows...
I think for so pricey tube, the new brand has to relax the consumer offering for example the warranty of very long life (10 000 hrs mini) with the good bias setting... That would be a serious positive point in face of chinese brand with relative reliability which are not affraid to sell the new 211 WE re edition for about 800 euros/pair... I don't know for 211 but with preamp tube, a lot of people did have issues with their psvane: some died after 3 months... So very pricey for so lilltle time of listening...
But If I buy a pricey tube and I keep it for 10 years...this time I can re-exam the problem of the cost...

Hi!

I know the price is high, but that is simply the cost of labour and Elrog is not even earning money yet. Development cost has to be funded too. As for warranty, no manufacturer can give a 10.000 hrs warranty on such a DHT that would just not be serious.

Best regards

Thomas

Smile Psvane 211 T MK II Valves

I have the new Psvane 211 T MK II Valves installed in my Jolida Music Envoy Mono Blocks - pus/pull 150 watts

In a word they are terrific. No harshness as found with the Shuguang 211A valves.

They have fantastic tone, great bass, midrange that is sweet and detailed and highs to die for. Sound staging is wide and deep. They are great valves for new production.

Hi peter!

Hope your Psvane will be reliable for a long time...I don't know for 211 but a lot of their small tubes did have issues...
Some people emailed me about the shuguang 211b wich would be a good and relaible candidate too!

thanks for sharing!
