In Reply to: RE: A chance to own Mullard XF1 tubes but.... posted by audiophilewannabe on June 21, 2020 at 04:16:56
if they are truly xf1's and test good, you should have no problem if running SET. All you have to do is set the proper bias.
Pairs are sold for push-pull amps
They are truly XF1 brown fat bottoms. Although one of them seems to have a lighter brown bottom. The 2 have the darker ones. Thought about getting them to match. All I need is one for each monoblock. I wonder if they would blow me away sonically. I mean they are very sought after.
I have a quad of them, not sure what XF version without digging them out though. They are used pulls from a Dynaco 70 I picked up at a flea market. I use them if I want to see what a compatible SE amp can really do. They always sound better than any other tubes I have used. One day I'll have to gather them up and test em on a good tester. Only tested for shorts on my cheap tube tester.
