Home Tubes Asylum

Questions about tubes and gear that glows. FAQ

The Russian 6P3SE certainly aren't poor performers.

Those tubes not only sound like an RCA 6L6GC black plate in many ways,they also last a long time.

Now getting back to the 6L6 and 1614 metal tubes,they do have a sonic purity and uniqueness that is undeniable. Mcintosh obviously liked them but audio seems to thrive on the moment. I would say the metal tubes are much better than what their perception has been over the years.Lets be honest here.You and I both know that physical appearance plays a major role in how several people will see these tubes regardless of how they sound.
IMHO,they sound fabulous.I never did spec test them in an amplifier tho.
