In Reply to: RE: Newbie question....6922 tubes.... posted by airtime on May 28, 2017 at 17:16:02
Exactly! Just because the unit has a hefty price tag, doesn't mean tube abuse is absent. The OEM use of the Russian tube may be a warning. While the 6H23П-EB may not be the best sounding variant, it is decent and its toughness is, most definitely, not an issue.
FWIW, some folks think the "reissue" Gold Lion variant is "the best" sounding variant. However, good sound or not, the GL will not tolerate abuse.
I'm using a Gold Lion 6922 in my Conrad Johnson. And that preamp beats the snot out of tubes. Usually a EH lasts about 6-9 months in my CJ. The GL so far has been in there about 18+ months and still going strong.
What is the model of your c-j preamp?
In my Pr 17 i found 6922 eh better than Gl 6922 RI
