Yep. I have been very happy with the tubes. Among, if not the best, input tubes Ive used.

Quality and claim of longevity, were the reasons I decided to try them.

It wont hurt to get in touch with Don, and see what he says.

Thanks for the input, gents!

Bummer, Geno. Ive been using the 88 from Wathan for several years now. Its the best of their input tube options that I have heard. Knocking on wood it keeps going strong. Will is right, the longevity is why I tried them in the first place and the great sound is a perk. The price has raised since they were first released. Don has them at $163 + shipping these days.

Back in the listening chair after vacation, and listening to Bach.



16/44 FLAC download.

Bach's Art of the Fugue is a tough nut to crack, even if you love both Bach and counterpoint as I do. My favorite AotF delivery vehicle is often string quartet, but Craig Sheppard does an amazing job making the music sing on a modern concert grand.

What this might be is the cathode is loose and buzzing in response to the 60 Hz voltage being applied. It isn't a good sign, and probably means the tube is going to fail sooner rather than later, but if you like it, and the buzz isn't a problem you might as well ride it out to the end. JMO/YMMV and all that.

Isn't longevity a big part of the Wathen cryo pitch? I recall it that way when they first started to be talked about anyway... that their process causes tubes to last extra long... With a lot of good NOS inputs purported to last 5000 and more hours... one year every single day at 5 hours a day is not much over 1800 hours. I guess worth a call...
