  1. Item: Rectifier tubes Location: Melbourne Price: See below Item Condition: New Reason for selling: Not needed Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: A few guys have contacted me about the rectifiers I mentioned in the previous listing so I thought it would be easier to list them all. Open to offers, happy to post... would love to see them go so I can get my lounge room back. I have not tested any of these but most have boxes and look new. Anything that looked other than new wont be listed (only a couple of dusty looking examples). I can plug any of the 5v tubes into my pre or phono to check they are functioning.

  8. Have a pair of 6n3p-dr somewhere. Will have a dig when I get home. Also have lots of 5670, 2c51 etc....
  9. Hi Bronal, I've looked into Duc's suggestion of the Mazda's some time ago and it's reasonably well known that they are actually 6/30L2 tubes. They can also be found labelled as ecc804. They may work in your gear depending on the operating points. I've seen reports of them sounding better (different?) and also worse than 6cg7's... http://www.r-type.org/exhib/aaq0069.htm If you want to give them a shot then try http://www.langrex.co.uk/ as they have stock of the 6/30L2 and I'd imagine they will be considerably cheaper than buying a Mazda 6cg7. I've seen them on the Bay for as little as 10 bucks a throw. My CJ amp uses 6cg/fq7 as phase splitters and I have had success with the US made Raytheon black plate 6cg7's from the early 60's... not the later Jap made tubes. I'm not a huge fan of the clear tops but the older black plate RCA's are very good. I also have a quad of Tung Sol grey plates which I like very much and also some Sonotone black plates made in NY in 1961 which are good too. All are 6cg7's with shield. No experience with 6fq7's. Cheers Chris
  10. Hi BQL, I currently run a Prem. 11a on 97db speakers and I couldn't be happier. I have modded the 11a reasonably heavily as I felt it would respond well with a few choice tweaks and the quality of the iron made it a good candidate. Jupiter copper foils made for a huge improvement over the stock CJ styrenes and high voltage schottky's, some quality resistors on the grids, switching out a few power supply bypass caps and the right tubes... I can't see myself ever getting rid of this amp. In fact, I don't think I could afford anything that would knock it from its perch. Best money I've spent on something that I didn't build myself. If you ever see one up for grabs do not hesitate! Cheers, Chris.
  11. I'll grab the copper caps please Mark.
  12. Item: G.E. 5751 grey plate triple mica tube Location: Melbourne Price: $40 plus postage Item Condition: Tests New Reason for selling: Not needed Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: This guy came as a botched order but rather than send it back I figured someone on the forum would like it. Same construction as the late 50's/early 60's 5 star with slanted halo getter, copper grid posts. Looks to be 1961, labelled DuMont. Nice tube but I need pairs. Pictures:
