    Installed these Russian 6H8C tubes made in the Reflektor factory in 1973 into my Supratek Cortese LCR gen 3 preamp. These are Russian equivalents to 6SN7 tubes.

    Tubes came in spanking brand new cardboard boxes – they looked so new I would have sworn they were made last week. Tubes looked great too. I was assured they are original real Russian tubes from 1973.

    Bass has a nice weight to it and seem very balanced across the frequency spectrum. So far the 6H8C tube is the best that I’ve tried. This Russian tube is what came stock from Mick – he likes it the best too. Overall, a solid and well balanced tube.

    The other 6SN7GT tubes I have tried were some nice RCA’s from early 1950’s and some Sylvania “Bad Boys” from late 1940’s. Neither sounded as good or as well balanced. The Sylvania’s were close but a little tipped up in the treble and bass was lean compared to these Commie cold war tubes.

    For the price well worth a try if you need a 6SN7 tube. I believe you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how great they do sound!

    Burned in for over 77 hours. Very quiet. Not to bright, more of a warm mid-range. The Bass was not really deep or heavy. Wouldn’t say the bass was tight either.
    Most of my listening so far was on a DarkVoice with Hart interconnects, HiFiMan HE-4XX and Topping DX7. Maybe that’s why the mid-range was more forward. For $12.59 it is worth having this in your arsenal of 6SN7 spares.
