The Shuguang 845C tube is a fantastic upgrade to standard 845 tubes. The detail and smoothness is noticeably better than the standard 845. They have an air around the highs more often heard from low power triode tubes. The 845C tube has a deep soundstage, tight and detailed bass, and outstanding stereo imaging.

Note that the Shuguang 845C tube is a metal plate design and has a 70W maximum plate dissipation, not the 100W like NOS 845 tubes or graphite plate 845 tubes. This must be taken into consideration when rebiasing your amplifier.

Great Alternative for the Right Amp, but Not a Universal Choice

by

Fantastically fast and transparent 845. The "C" sheet metal plate tube sounds like a much more expensive KR 845 in its sheer transparency and articulation. BUT you must bias your amp for its lower-than-standard dissipation. In some amps without adjustable bias if just dropped in, it will run with the plate slightly cherried. It won't runaway but tube life will be shortened.

It is a great tube to open up and extend the top end on a lot of the Chinese 845 amps that sound a little dull and old-school on the top end with a graphite plate 845, so can be compensatory for better balance in those amps -- e.g. Melody and Dared 845 amps. In an already wide-open 845 amp like an Audion Black Shadow, it is too bright, whether the amp is re-biased or not.

Choose this tube accordingly -- know your amp.
