Testing

These tubes test as new with balanced sections.
They are precisely matched for both current draw (mA) and transconductance (Gm). They have been screened for gas, heater-cathode leakage, shorts, and excessive noise and microphonics on each triode section. They were tested at typical operating voltages on a laboratory grade Amplitrex AT1000 (manual setting, fixed bias mode). Learn more about our testing process here.
 
Noise and microphonics

These tubes test as "phono grade"--the quietest range for noise and microphonics--on our custom noise testing equipment. They are an excellent choice for sensitive applications such as microphone preamps, DA converters, and phono stages.

 
Pricing

These tubes are sold as a matched pair.
They ship in new white boxes with test results for each triode section. Photos are of the actual tubes. Singles, when available, are listed as Item 561.
