My Review


Lots of detail without any brightness and very musical and natural. I have always wanted to hear details, good left to right imaging, great front to back imaging and I got it in spades with these tubes.

It sounds so good already it is almost beyond my comprehension.

A Surprise


This is an Excellent tube. As a hard-core 6SN7 tube roller, I was shocked at how good these sound. In my Cary 300 SEI, unquestionably the best sounding "new" 6SN7 I've ever heard. Do not hesitate.

My Review


Being a past owner of two Supratek preamplifiers, I gained
some experience with various 6SN7 tubes - old RCA tubes, brown based Sylvania
tubes, multiple 7N7 tubes used with adapters and, of course, the usual run of
the mill new production Electro Harmonix and Tung-Sol tubes. The EH I found
very harsh, the Tung Sol only slightly better. When I sold my last Supratek I
thought I was done with 6SN7 tube rolling... but I was wrong. I recently
purchased a made-to-order preamp: fully balanced design with quality internal
component, etc. I was able to experiment with the few remaining NOS tubes that
I kept but did not like the results. Naturally, I was very curious to hear the
new Northern Electric 6SN7. My impression? This 6SN7 variant is a very quiet tube, with noticeably smoother
sound than the other new production types I have and, let's face it, most of
the NOS brands that I had tried. Compared to my NOS RCA 6SN7 tubes or the Sylvania
7N7s, the Northern Electric tubes present with a rather well extended frequency
range, with only a touch of dryness in the mid-frequencies. I had good results
at either buffer or gain stages of the preamp. In short, there is simply no
comparison to the Electro Harmonix and TS. All in all, an excellent tube, with the added advantage of easily being
able to source matched tubes and triodes.



Very, Very, Very Good Tube. Clear, natural sound. Every instrument has more space for individual dynamics. I installed them in a MingDa MD 845-A.

Supreme audio visualisation


Humongous scene, right in your face.
Super tight bass with great extension, clear crisp high-end and a midrange to die for.
Extremely good looking bottle with thick glass which screams good quality.
Can it get any better????

Placed in preamp section on a Cayin VP-100i,
sourced by a Audio Experience Concerto Plus riaa.
