The Sovtek 6H30p-EB tube is a fantastic tube for high-end audio. This unusual tube variant (sometimes called the 6H30, 6N30 or 6N30P) was first used in hifi audio by Balanced Audio Technologies. They introduced it to the audiophile world in the 1990's. Now, many other audio designers/manufacturers such as Audio Research and Conrad Johnson, use this wonderful tube in their tube amplifiers and preamps as well.

Please note that this tube can not be used in place of 6DJ8 or 6922 tubes in other pre-amps; it can only be used in equipment that is designed for it.

These tubes are easy to design with.

These Sovtek tubes are better than the EH.
I just changed the socket to gold plated.
This is a must. These triodes will produce
0.05% even order harmonics at 90Khz. Cool

This tube is the one to use in your new design....


This tube has the same harmonic distortion + noise from 20hz to 80Khz.
Since RIAA and DAC filters roll off under 40K, the bandwidth of this tube is easily twice what is necessary. The phase shift and gain linearity when used in the correct circuit makes the preamp and driver tubes of the old days obsolete. In the right circuit this tube will outperform preamps that cost in the 10s of thousands to purchase.

Quiet & balanced tone

I've had these in my Musical Paradise MP-1 Mk.2 for over 2 years. Very quiet with a balanced tone. Could not be happier with their performance.
