In Reply to: RE: Schiit Freya + ordered: any suggestions for 6SN7 tubes? posted by Feanor on July 29, 2020 at 04:42:02
Mine came with JJ's FWIW. They sounded fine to me, especially thru the break-in process. The Freya+ takes a few weeks to come into its own, so I used the supplied tubes thru break-in. Then I switched to ANOS G.E.'s after roughly 3 weeks. Those have been in the Freya+ ever since.
Maybe others can comment, but I think some of the Psvane or Shuguang 6SN7 variety may be too large near the base to fit the recessed tube sockets of the Freya+.( not without a tube socket extender of some sort) Not 100% sure on this, but I just felt more comfortable going with NOS or ANOS varieties.
I'll have to measure the Freya + and see if I can find specs for the tubes I might consider.
I love the music of Dmitri Shostakovich ...
Well, the TJ's mentioned by mrod worked fine in his Saga. This assuming the Saga and Freya have the same diameter tube openings in their respective chassis. Hopefully others will chime in on this one.
The TJ Full Music clears the base recess in my Saga just fine. I would imagine that it Isn't much different in the Freya.
Nostalgia is history removed of the burdensome weight of reality
