    Default F/S Vintage Sylvania 12AX7 Valves Long Grey Plate Matched Quad


    I bought these as a matched quad NOS from the US and one of the pics shows the original readings.
    I understand them to date from late 50/60's and were made by Sylvania for Baldwin.
    They have always been used together firstly in my EAR 864 and briefly in my Hovland.
    Now surplus to needs

    PRICE 40.00 inc postage


    Tangerine LP12,Naim Aro, Benz Wood
    Audiomeca Talisman Highly Modded
    Audiomeca Kreatura & Elixir Dac,SW1X DAC1
    Hovland HP100 MC
    SiriuS D100
    Quad FM4,RWA Cassabria + LCD 3
    HSM with re capped Mundorf Supreme and Atlas rewire
    Cables by Cardas, Hovland G3 and Yter

    If it's just for a play I could let you have a couple of 'cooking tubes'? They'd work fine. PM if interested.

    I found a couple of old Sovtecs in the box to keep me going but I'm on the lookout for at least a nice pair.
