In Reply to: RE:Any Preferences Among the Siemens posted by Jack G on July 03, 2012 at 11:45:36
So, you are saying that the Siemens 6922/E88cc... give you a better response than the 7308/E188CCs?
Better is a subjective term, but yes, in my opinion. I'm not a big fan of 7308s despite in theory they are supposed to sound better, especially quieter. I just haven't found that to be true in my case(s).
As always, YMMV
PS. Make sure that they are from the 50s or early 60s.
Of course, it's always system and ear related. It would be wonderful if there was a tube library similar to the Cable Co. :)
Re: PS - Yes, from what I have been told try not to go later than 68. And try get the ones with the date code etched on the outside rather than on the metal tag within the tube. I presume that came after '68.
In mid 1965, Siemens moved to stamping the three-lined code on an aluminium clad that was attached to the top mica support within the tube's glass envelope. This was only done for a period of 6 months or so before the appearance of the 2-lined A1 6-letter code.
