Data for PE08/40
 
Hi all!
im looking for any kind of data on Philips PE08/40
i cant seem to find anything on google, nor in my tubelists/books..
pls. help, any info would be welcome!!

No hint in RTT or the Ratheiser book either. You are sure on the "08" part of the designation? PE06/40 just would be 807 ...

Yes i am pretty sure it says 08/40, PE tells me its a tetrode, right?
i will try to take a picture tonight, the tube has two anode connections on top, not ordinary caps but nuts to tighten wires in place.

"PE" is just an old Philips/Valvo prefix for transmitting tubes, as far as I know not giving implicite information on wether it might be tetrode or pentode. Since Philips had the pentode patents, I suppose many PE types were real pentodes w/ surpressor grids, indeed.

an old RL12P35 relabelled ;)

Mr. Triatic 23rd May 2006 10:12 PM

ach so.. relabeled.. -Thank you very much for the info!!

it seems suitable for audio, dont you think? 8-)

Ja , but the results are not so good as other RS (Sendung) tubes . And did you ever tried to find the socket ? :confused:

Mr. Triatic 24th May 2006 07:20 AM

i think i have a few sockets already..
but i guess im sonically better off with 6DQ5 or PL/EL509 in SE right?
-but linearity of RL12P35 is not that bad for a pentode?
I know its not kinkless, but anyhow, it is usable!

Any recommendation for OPT:s?
