My current preamp can't use ECC83 anymore hence I am selling these extremely rare Mullards.   They have about  500hours put on them at most, they are rated for 10000 hours.

 

These are the golden gems of the ECC83 pre tubes.  I will pack them carefully and arrange for transport of them via AusPost Express bag.

I thought 10M’s had yellow print?

What denotes that these are 10M’s if you don’t mind me asking.

Sorry I made a mistake, these are not master series, they are just below them. I've updated price to reflect.

They look to me to be I63 January 1969 Blackburn made with silver grid posts and welded perpendicular O getters.

Not sure what 163 January means, but I am intrigued how can you determine year of manufacture – I cannot see any date codes on these tubes?

The left valve in the 4th photo above shows the horizontal etched date code of B9A* just to the left of the Made in Great Britain white print. The asterisk should be a number representing the week of manufacture but it's long gone from the glass envelope most likely smeared off with time. B represents Blackburn, 9 is the year  of manufacture, in this specific case 1969, and A is the month of manufacture, January.

 

The distinct features of 14 mm short grey anode plates, silver grid posts and the perpendicular O ring getter with a welded connection 3/4 along the height of the support rod identifies the revision code of I63. I am not going to comment on the gold plated pins.

 

How the revisions codes progressed are I600, mC1, f91, f92, I61 and I63. Within each revision code there were several versions having distinct features - for example, in the I600 series, the prized possessions, there were 3 variants: black welded 17 mm toasted plate copper grid post wrinkle/mottled glass square goal post getters; grey welded 17 mm plate copper grid wrinkle/mottled glass square goal post getters; and, grey crimped 17 mm plate copper grid post clear glass square goal post getters.

 

I can write books and books on this stuff.

 

To the trained eye these things are very easy to spot. 😉

Wow!. I was fascinated reading that explanation. @ OP , sorry for topic drift in your FS ad.

But I've got to ask. How much would the master series tubes sell for?

 

Edit: And what makes the yellow ones better?

Edit: And what makes the yellow ones better?

The 10M series are distinctly recognisable by the 2 inherent features of yellow print identifying the 10M label and gold plated pins.

 

These valves were specifically hand selected for GPO and highly specialised applications requiring very tight tolerances in the matching of the dual triodes. They also exhibited very low microphonics and noise, and are most commonly selected for use in phono stage input or gain V1 or V2 positions in modern audiophile applications where low microphonics are highly desirable. They appeared in the 1960's and are the equivalent of comparing a CCa valve with an E88CC valve from the exact same factory made at the exact same time with the exact same manufacturing code. These valves were measured, tested and labelled for highly specified telephony applications. Think cold war, nuclear fallout and the criticality of comms in pilot warfare chasing those invisible migs and you get the message.

 

Happy to answer any other queries off-line and refocus the post back to the OP's FS listing. 👍👍👍

      Item Condition: mint Shipping Options: Pickup available and you can audition.,Shipping is available at agreed cost. Suburb or Town: Canberra State: Australian Capital Territory Payment Method: Cash, EFT Reason for selling: Return home Further information: 
      3rd iteration of 1266 series(1266 original, phi, CC, TC)
      A pair of mint condition TOTL headphones. If you love HD800 and Utopia like I did, you will love 1266 CC. Excellent separation, even bigger soundstage than HD800, even more dynamic than Utopia, better resolution than both,  rich mids, best bass and smooth treble. A  real meaningful upgrade for HD800 users. Since A2A no long sells Abyss 1266 series, this might be the easier way to obtain one if you decide to go TOTL. Selling due to going back to China and have 1266TC and better equipments at home. 
      Purchased from A2A with receipts and all accessories, price is slightly negotiable.

      Item Condition: Excellent Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available.,Shipping is available at agreed cost. Suburb or Town: Lindfield State: New South Wales Payment Method: Paypal, PyaId, EFT, Cash on Pickup Reason for selling: Downsizing/Switched to other filter system I have my collection of Lee filters for sale. All filters and parts in excellent condition, except one chipped corner on 0.6 soft ND (does not affect quality of photos).
       
      The set includes:
      1. Lee Foundation Kit (up to 3 square filters)
      2. Lens Adapter Ring - 77mm Wide Angle
      3. Front Filter Ring 105mm (for polariser)
      4. 3 x lens caps
      5. Lee Landscape Circular Polariser (105mm)
      6. Lee Super Stopper - 15 stops ND filter 100x100mm
      7. Lee Big Stopper - 10 stops ND filter 100x100mm
      8. Lee Little Stopper - 6 stops ND filter 100x100mm
      9. Lee 0.9 hard edge ND filter 100x150mm
      10. Lee 0.6 soft edge ND filter 100x150mm - one corner slightly chipped - see photos
      11. MindShift Filter Hive - filter case
       
      Top quality filters.  I bought them over the last few years. The kit and the oldest filters are about 5-6 years old, the latest addition was Super Stopper that I bought about a year ago. The circular polariser is relatively new too. The filters were lightly used, no scratches and always kept clean. 
      I have all the original boxes, cases, and packaging. 
       
      Decided to downsize and switched to a different filter system. So the sale.
       
      At this stage I would prefer to sell them together. But if you're interested in a subset or individual filters please send me a message, I may consider splitting the set.
       
      Pickup available from Lindfield (2070) but I'll be happy to post them (fully insured AustPost) for an extra fee.
