Soundlumia's Opinion

The "Crown Jewelry" ECC82 tube is here! If you've been seeking the reference tube sound then look no further. Designed for high end amplifiers and preamplifiers, Telefunken ECC82 provides high level gain with ultra low noise and are unquestionably the most sought-after vintage tube and treasured by audio professionals and enthusiasts. 

Like any other Telefunken tubes, these ECC82's are very pleasant to listen to: liquid, euphonic, with a slightly warmer midrange than many other German tubes, which makes your sound experience smooth and non-fatiguing, and all that happens on a unbelievably realistic holographic sound stage, where everything feels bigger, wider and taller. Sound texture can be felt through infinite levels of details, laying on top of each other, both in depth and in width. So your quest for superb sound clarity can end right here. Lastly, it never gets old to say that no other brand is even close to these when it comes to low noise - Telefunken tubes are "extremely" quiet just as legend has it.

Professional Tube Testing
Tube 1:

Measured transconductance(GM): 2.35/2.41 mA/V  - 107%/110% (100% = 2.20 mA/V)
Measured plate current(IA): 10.592/11.17 mA  - 101%/106% (100% = 10.5 mA)

NO shorts, leakage or gas. NO noise or microphonics.

Appearance & Cosmetic condition

Beside the fantastic sound signature, we treasure as it is in pristine cosmetic condition and the Berlin date codes on the side are visible on the tube:

B1517127 (B = Berlin, 7 = 1967)

And of course the diamond mark on bottom - the symbol of the best sound one can ever find on ECC82's.
