I custom designed and built a Class A amplifier system for Hi-Fi. I spent hundreds of hours on the project and used very high quality parts. It sounded terrific, and sounds better as all the parts \"run-in\". The amplifier has 45W RMS/channel, and uses a quad on each side. I had tried many different types of tubes and some were better than others. As you know, a Class A amplifier can be truly revealing so the tubes have to be good and the right quality.
I looked at the design of the TAD 6L6GC and decided to give them a try. I was impressed with the look and the fact they were designed in Germany - the home of great engineering. When I received them, I was very happy with the build quality and appearance. However, the real surprise was running them in my amplifier! These are fabulous tubes! They do something for the music unlike any other tube I have tried. And I have even tried the famous RCA black plates, and yes, these do sound better. In fact, I bias them at 68mA and I use PEARL tube coolers, so far, they have been extremely stable and I have about 300 hours on them with no bias drift. Fantastic!
I am now building the second amplifier - a clone of the first as I can bi-amplify my speakers - and will no doubt be using the TAD 6L6GC in that amplifier as well. I recommend them to anyone who wants a great tube in their home tube audio system!

I play blues and rock and i have got a best
vintage sound , warmer , and more sustain with TAD tubes.
In addition they are cheaper than mesa tubes.
Many thanks to Stephan Meyer who help me to make the right selection for my DR.
I hope that TAD company will continue to ship
such quality products.
