Default 6N6P vs 5687

Hi,
Seems more people like to use 5687 as a line stage or driver stage, but how about the 6n6p? They have the similar spec except the pin layout. In fact the 6n6p has the more common pin layout like 6922, 6H30, 6DJ8... and it's very cheap (about $5 a pair on eBay). Is there anyone had experience with it and how about the sound quality?
Thanks.

The new JJ ECC99 is better.

OH! I tried ECC99, 6H30 and 6N6. I preferred 6H30 and 6N6 to ECC

Ciao

Thanks for the very nice links. So is that mean the sound of 6N6P is very close to 6H30? But the 6H30's are getting more expensive now because they have been using by BAT.

6N6P is very close to 6H30P-DR (military version from 1980-1985).

Imho, voice of 6N6P more "fat".

I just bought 6 for 10$, the sonic bargain of the moment. Use as preamp/driver/output tube...

Just finished my James Doddington 6N6P pushpull last night. And initial impression is positive.

Maybe? I got them from Kalleb's special webstore (Estonia I think).


Click the image to open in full size.

I used a Cinemag CMLI-15/15b, LL1660S/25mA and a Klaré 8K pp OT. So both the interstage and OT not ideal (a LL1660S/10mA would have been better and a 10K output as well..). Initial impression was very positive.

I also did not use BG but just whatever I had lying in my parts box.

Pictures tonight if the threadstarter does not mind.
