RE: $400ea??????????????????????????????????????????

Mikey IIRC the Rp of the 6n6p is more, ~ 2K, but a mighty fine tube. I built a parafeed linestage around the 6n6p, using Magnequest B7 nickle core transformers. It sounded great, very linear tube, cheap and plentiful.

They are like an ECC99 with a slightly different pin out, only better. Pin 9 is a shield between the 2 triode sections, instead of heater center tap, so only a 6.3v tube.

The mid 60's vintage Reflector/Saratov (also called Foton) tubes with the diamond shaped logo, and the square getter, are the bomb. Those tubes are hard to find now, and command a higher price, but well worth it.
