Ratings & Reviews
I've been running four of these in the driver stage of my ASL Hurricanes for thousands of hours now, and they still sound (and test) fantastic. Smooth and neutral would be the way I'd describe them. Their great looks are an added bonus. I've rolled countless 6SN7's (incl. the famed TSRP's and Syl. Bad Boys), and these can easily go head to head with them. Also, theses are probably more accurate to the source.

Added tube processor (Yaqin CD3) to system (Perfect Wave DAC with Bridge 2; Rotel RB-1590 amp; B&W 803 D2). Was ok with stock tubes. Is fantastic with Northern Electric! Warm, open, natural, yet sharp. A clear SQ improvement. I'm really happy with these tubes!
I'm running two of these as driver tubes in a KT150 SE UL amplifier. The 6SN7's triodes are run in parallel with each tube feeding it's own power tube. This 6SN7 sound is creamy smooth, very clear, very controlled from the deep bass to the airy highs. Physical appearance of this tube is outstanding. If something happened to these tubes I would weep, and order more.
Northern Electric 6SN7-Great Choice
by ALAN SMITH
Just received a quad of these to use in my Yaqin MC-100B replacing four Electro Harmonix. Just plugged them in and couldn't be happier with the sound, even though the tubes are not broken. Smooth and an increased depth.
Nice detail - great base

I've been using these in my Schiit Freya pre. Love them. Good, clear and well defined sound with a nice sounding base.
