USD $‎37.95
The Tungsram company was based in Hungary and was the European equivalent of General Electric. Like GE, their tubes are respected for their quality workmanship and are relatively rare today.

The Tungsram ECC82 / 12AU7 tube is very neutral/natural sounding, it has a extended top end and tight bass. Overall very good tonal balance and clarity.

Tungsram ECC82/12AU7


I replaced these tubes in my Atma-Sphere Music Preamplifier 3 (MP-3) and I couldn't believe how different than original (made in China, no brand name) these tubes sounded. The sound described on these pages as neutral is very true. These tubes have very linear and not "tubey" , more like solid state sound with clarity in all frequency spectrum. The bass is very tight and a little dry sounding but this complements soft and bloomy bass (read bloomy and heavy) recordings.

Update: My comment from 6/5/14 about the a little dry bass was based on the
wrong assumption as my speakers placement was far beyond optimal due to
furniture rearrangement and the tubes needed few days to settle.. Now
the bass is tight and extended with no hint of dryness.
