12AU7/E80CC work that requires more heater current

It's very similar to 12au7, but is 1/2 taller and required more heater current, so please make sure that you check with you manufacturer before using the tubes.

Will this tube work in a Mini Torii

Thanks,

Peter

Hifitubes and PK,

I'm currently considering a pair of Tungsram E80CC's for my Mini Torii's driver position, based on other people's reviews. Could you guys forward your final impression on these? Thanks!

I went to a  NOS Amperex 7316 (a 12au7 equivalent) and  I am very happy.

Yes, thank you. I thought you had said 12Ax7 earlier ...  I guess you rectified that?

In any case, this fits exactly with my expected comfort zone for the driver specs in the Mini, right inside that squared area between the 12Au7 and the 6414 and others ...

My best experience with the SQ 7062 really nails it for me. Unfortunately, I lost one of mine and Jessee did not have another but a regular 7062, which is not the same, so I have been back to my RCA black plate 12Au7's.

I can get Tungsram E80CC's and there are good reviews around, but I wanted to check base with Decware users before committing.

What could you say about them in your system?  Differences with the 7316? Thanks!

I tried a lot of tubes before I settled on the 7316.

Brent Jessee agreed with my selection and thought the NOS Amperex stood out from other 12au7,s or equivalents.
