Ratings & Reviews
My Cary 805AE can use either the 211 or 845. I prefer the 211 with the speakers I am using. Other than the stock Shuguangs that came with the amp, I have used NOS GE VT4-C that were a nice improvement. I bought a pair of these Natural Sounds about a month ago and am very happy with them. I'd put them up there in the same league with the GE's and at about half the cost. They were real nice right out of the box (surprise) and got better after the usual 10-20+ hours. May even get better yet.Thank you "thetubestore" for offering and excellent choice to what's available out there.
VERY NICE! China's work with graphite plates is quite impressive!
I won't say these are better than the old GE's, but I will say, "These are different than GEs". They are not nearly as good as my 1942 RCAs, but those are, simply put, visually better constructed than the GE 211s. Better supports, better everything, but RCA's 211s are getting super scarce! These are great tubes for the price, and do you really want to arc a $3500 set of tubes? Me neither! I can almost voice to these tubes, well enough to compensate for the fact they are not RCAs, but only to a point. I do not judge tubes from the golden age of thermo-ionics against modern tubes, or no one would get more than 3 stars. You are not paying over $3000 for a matched pair, either! China has really stepped up it's game! 73s, KI7AQJ
