Reflector 6H23p-EB / 6922 (Premium)
From Wall Of Sound: "The 6H23p-EB tube is refined, restrained and nuanced. Starting with the bass, the 6H23p-EB is slightly less forceful, but more controlled and articulate than the Tesla ECC88/JJ E88CC combination. The midrange is nicely detailed. Male and female vocals are more present and detailed as well. The twang of guitar strings in Knopfler’s Golden Heart is more apparent. This increased detail is not at the expense of treble smoothness : it’s nicely detailed, yet doesn’t seem to overemphasize the vocal sibilance of the McLachlan and McKennitt tracks. There is, on occasion, a very slight treble hardness, but this is a minor failing in light of all the things this tube does well. I have about 90 hours on these tubes and it would not surprise me if this would smooth out a bit more by the 200 hour mark. The price is reasonable for the performance offered, and certainly seems like a bargain compared to the high prices and questionable performance of some of other NOS tubes...I wasn’t expecting the 6H23p-EB to be this good."
This premium Russian built NOS 6922 tube replacement is also known by various Russian names, including 6N23n-EB, 6H23N-EB and 6N23. These are the hard to find NOS (new old stock) of premium quality in both sound and construction.
The 6922 / 6DJ8 tube type is equivalent to the European ECC88 / E88CC tube and can be used in any 6922, 6DJ8 or ECC88 circuit.

Ratings & Reviews
I was looking for a reasonable priced NOS tube for my old BAT VK-3i preamp that had developed a hiss in one of the channels. I tracked down the problem to a faulty 6922 tube and replaced all four with a quad-matched set of the Reflector 6922. Very quiet tube with a noticeable improvement in sound, not too bright, not too muddy...just right!
The ONLY tube for Audible Illusions.
by Tony NYC
I have a 25 year old Audible Illusions Modulus 3A preamp and a brand new Modulus 4A. These are absolutely the BEST tubes for any Audible Illusions Preamp. They absolutely sound the best and they last. Audible Illusions preamps can be hard on tubes. I've been tube rolling for over 50 years. I have LOTS of tube gear, but when it comes to the Audible Illusions, I know this is the best possible tube you can use for this preamp. It's worth the extra few bucks when it comes to one of the best preamps ever made. I have a stash of these and just bought 4 more. I do NOT know what I would get in place of this if they were no longer available. I asked Art Ferris about which tubes to use for the Audible Illusions 25 years ago when I bought the 3A and again last month when he built me the model 4A. Same answer. He states to ONLY use this tube in his preamps. I agree.
not recommended for Mimas
bought these because of the reviews, made the Aesthtix Mimas sound harsh and fatiguing...the jan-phillips is better...
Good sound stage
Installed in a xindak 6200 i change the electro hamonix because there is a hum on the left. Now the sound stage is more larger and deeper, bass is more deep and controled, medium and high are detailled. There is a black effect, very cool when i listen classic.
pair matched 6H23P-EB- VERY nice, no complaints

Have about 20 hours on these. VERY happy with them. Very musical, clear, clean, great highs, mid-range and lows. Quiet. Lots of 'air' around the instruments. My amp is a Decware Torii Jr. I need to roll my 12AX7 tubes in my pre-amp to see which one works best with these new tubes. Very happy that I sprang for these. I mostly listen to Getz, Oscar, Miles, Steely Dan, Dire Straits, Bill Evans, Jimi, Eric - so jazz, rock, blues.
