Questions about tubes and gear that glows. FAQ

RE: Good, Reliable, affordable 6922's?

Chris is not wrong in that they are all important. But in my experience some are more so than others. At least in amps I am familiar with and some of the other Sonic Frontier amps I've read about. I know it may be a moot point as you may be changing amps regardless.

It's a bugger though not being able to find any schematics or other information particular to the SF Power One. And typically when you have something like a v1, v2, v3... v6, v7, v8 set up per channel, you would think v1 and v6 would be critical. But that's not even the case with something like the Power Two. From what I have read it is the middle pairing.

Those Mullard's would sure be nice to try again. Some of the Ei tubes are also very good. Though in either case some can be very bad depending on the factory they were made in.

Fortunately there are some pretty good new production options at reasonable prices for both your signal and power tubes.

I'll be at the same stage as you are someday when I deplete by NOS supply on hand. Maybe even consider solid state as you are likewise doing in your other threads.
