ECC803 S TAD Premium Selected

In the Tradition of the Famous Telefunken ECC803S

A long-plate ECC83 / 12AX7A in the tradition of the famous Telefunken ECC803S.
1dB less gain than the RT003 (ECC83-Cz) but very detailed and defined, close to the RT001 (12AX7A),
Its strong cathode current makes it an ideal choice for the audio driver stage as well as for HiFi applications.

Q: When does a preamp tube become a Premium Selected tube?

A: All preamp tubes labeled Premium Selected have passed the following tests:
- Low Noise Test
- Microphonic Test
- Gain Test
- Sonic Tests
- Shock Tests
- Listening Tests
- Balanced Output Test

Matching and Selecting Options for Preamp Tubes
Matching in Pairs for preamp tubes means that two tubes show identical gain, hence, four characteristically identical systems.
This matching method includes our Balance-Selection. We highly recommend this matching method for hi-fi systems.

TAD Premium Selected/Highgrade tubes are guaranteed for a period of 6 months (according to terms of warranties)
for the quality criteria mentioned above.

Jimmy Smithers (5/5)

These tubes deliver tremendous harmonic richness and overtones.While still remaining well defined in all frequences.
Kinda like the "jack of all frequences" tube.
Definateley don't forget sweetness as well.

Andreas Leith (5/5)

Weighty, solid, superbly crafted tubes that replaced chinese no-names in my pre-amp, driving class A SE amps.

In conjunction with their 12AX7´s, the immediately apparent changes were a de-fogged, more spatially present and in your face sound.
More detailed yet smoother presentation. Airy... .
Prior edginess on high frequencies have also dissapeared.
Vocals to die for...have substance now...P´s, T´s and S´s -especially on female vocals- are clearly contoured now, liquid and..."juicy(?)".

Who cares...I love´em !

Oh...did I mention that these guys ship and deliver within 36hrs ?!?!

Will definitely shop again !
