(Digressing sorry....) the really interesting Sun Audio amp is the interstage-coupled 300B Push-pull model that was praised by the late Harvey Rosenberg yrs ago, but that does not appear in their catalogue anymore it seems.

Just popped some fresh VT-100-A's in the power supply for a new tube phono that I'm playing around with.

The photo does not do them justice. They look nice with the lights down.

Sturdily built Melody EL36S integrated valve amp ( 60wpc) used with my Quad ESL 2057(modernised 57s!!) and Linn Isobarik speakers. A very versatile amp.

Ever seen these  before? I haven't. Another SNA member gave me these. So what are they? The these are very ruggedised versions of more common driver or preamp tubes. Garanteed 10,000 hours of heavy duty. The 5691is a 6SL7 the 5692 a 6SN7 and the 5693 a triode and pentode in the one bottle.

 

How nice to make a 6SL7 preamp with one of these, how unique. No idea what they are worth. Yes strange "GE" box RCA tube. Any clues?

Was perusing the Opera Consonance website and spotted this addition to the lineup.

 

Linear X headphone/pre amp.

LinearX-b.JPG
 
LinearX is currently the most advanced headphone design, with precision, exquisite, grand and stable as the main sound features, to meet the various needs of the enthusiasts who use headphones.

1. The most pleasant sound Class A single-ended design, power tube is the "Emperor of the Vacuum" 300B, an output transformer specially designed for headphones, which can ensure the driving of various kinds of earphones, achieve a good impedance matching, and drive the various types of headphones on the market without any burden.

2. The use of bile rectifier and biliary regulator technology can provide a constant operating voltage for all electronic tubes, ensuring high sound stability, precision and stability.

3. 300B power tube operating current is manually adjustable to ensure that the electronic tube works in the best state, manually change the power tube current, but also for the use of headphones for flavor adjustment and music type adaptation.

4. The uncompromising material used to contribute to reasonable design. LUNDAHL Balanced Input Transformer, Mundorf Gold Oil Capacitor, Mundorf Electrolytic Capacitor, RA Resistor, EIZZ Stepper Potentiometer, Neutrick Balanced Input/Output Terminals, WBT Input Terminal and a series of high-quality components, supplemented by internal silver wire Cross-linking and scaffolding welding with the most direct circuit connection provide extremely high-quality internal electrical characteristics, ensuring the lowest loss of sound signals. The whole band of the electronic tube itself has good linear amplification capability without negative feedback, which largely ensures the lossless amplification of the source signal and high-speed signal response capability. Provides a transparent and highly transient sense of hearing.

5. In order to meet the needs of headset enthusiasts, LinearX offers two balanced XLR inputs, two single-ended RCA inputs, one balanced four-pin headphone output, one dual dual-core balanced headphone output, and two sets of 6.5 single-ended headphone outputs. A set of balanced XLRs and a set of single-ended RCA preamp outputs.

I tried the Gray plate and Black plate versions of these in my phono stage a while back,  stevenvalve let me try some. Very nice sounding tubes with lovely harmonically rich layered presentation, nice tonality and dynamics.

Many view these as the best 6SL7 type around.

 

Not cheap.

 

Yeah, can come in both RCA or GE branding as far as I understand.

That was my Sovtek 2A3 glowing in the dark. I think 90 s exposition time.

Different. Gec best ‘analytical’ tube, Bendix best ‘relaxing’ tube in most generalised terms. Couldn’t part with either of them.
