O.K. for gainclone and headphone amp and also stereoamp...ask for all he wants to give you...

6CW5
O.K. for stereoamp.

= EL86 same size as the EL84/6BQ5, I like it better but power is slightly lower.

You'll probably need at least 4 of them, ask for twice as much so you can match or have spares.

RAYTRONIC EF86
Input penthode for poweramp ask for at least 2 of them.

Quote:
PHILLIPS E80CC
Excellent allrounder...I'm starting to get a little jealous of you...
Ask for some.

Quote:
ECC82
Good for phasesplitting/driver. Ask a few.

Cheers,


P.S. After that you can safely refer to that uncle as your sugaruncle ....

Thank you very much for the reply, Frank!

I would like to bother a little more:

Maybe the e182cc serves for something?

It's one of those bigger noval twin triode tubes that was originally designed for analogue computer service.

It is said to be fine for audio use and has been successfully used as a driver/phasesplitter.

Personally I'd rather have another pair of E80CCs instead of that one but the choice is of course all yours.

Cheers,

P.S. There are some more types on that list that have their use in audio. I just selected the most useful ones for your shoppinglist.

I asked for the tubes with my knees on the ground, he opened the eyes very, seemed balls of golf, but now I am very very happy...

Here is:

5 SQ Philips E80CC (gold pins)
6 SQ Philips E182CC
5 MW Phillips EF86
9 Ultron E88CC (gold pins , its very the same philips but with ultron brand)
2 6CW5 Matsushita (Japanese)
2 ECC82 (CV491 , Im not sure about manufacturer , it have a YA with an up arrow , made in england )
1 ECC82 Telefunken


My first project will be the VBIGC , I want to make 5 channels to put some power and quality to my HTPC. For that I will use these E88CC , sure?

Thanks

As far as I know that's what they use for the bufferstage in the gainclones.

Glad to see you happy.

Cheers,
