Oh thanks Robot, very clear explanation.

Are yours 6N6 normal or "E" type ?
Can you comment about the presumed zero-microphonicity of the 6N6?
I have choiced this tube exactly for this reason, guys have told me that
6N6 is one of the fews double triodes not microphonic at all ( I am obsessed by microphonicity!)

I bought 8 "normal" tubes witihout any special markings, I didn t receive tham, and I cannot tell you how they work. From my experience Russian tubes are great mistery, in same series quality varies, so allways buy as much as you can afford, than choose the best samples for the project. This tube is very quiet, I would n t worry, if you are planing to do riia, make good proper power supply, and other precautions. For other usages, for example, dac output or drive sections don t worry...
