I did not like the Phillips 6dj8's that come with the SE that I bought separately as I do not have the SE Chinook.


Out of curiosity, are you using them in all 4 sockets or just the gain? Did you buy them through Upscale?

I may try some tube rolling in the near future....

I've got some Genalex Gold Lion 6922 (4) on the way, should arrive today, I ordered mine off eBay. I've been running TESLA E88CC 32 Gold (4) for the last two weeks they sound very good nice highs and lows with very good separation. The range of the Chinook with a little tube rolling is amazing to me. So far ....my experience:) the original Phillips PC88 tubes from UpScale are at the bottom.

I received the Genalex Gold Lion 6922 (4) After about 20 hrs of play these are now the champs.

So far the competitors are ; 4x tested, cryo-treated Tungsram PCC88 from Upscale audio didn't particularly like these, 4x Electro Harmonix 6922 / E88CC / 6DJ8 | Matched Quad EH, a vast improvement over Tungsram PCC88, 4x Matched quad of Amperex Holland 6DJ8 like these, just under Gold Lions.

Following incoming; ECC88/6DJ8 SIEMENS Ei BOXED VALVE YUGOSLAVIA NOS, PCC88 7DJ8 Valvo Heerlen 6DJ8 ECC88 E88CC same codes NOS NIB Holland Made, Siemens & Halske PAIR Double Triode VHF TUBES 6DJ8 ~ECC88.

Realizing that the Analogue Chain has a major influence :) Purple Heart N.S. Tracking 2.3gr 400 ohms load, duel pivot VPI 12” FatBoy on Avenger TT , VPI Delrin Stainless Steel Record Clamp with VPI clamping ring, HRX motor pulley with 3 belts, VPI reference feet with Fern & Roby's isolation pucks, Phoenix Engineering Eagle PSU and RoadRunner Tachometer, Cardas Silver RCA interconnects, MANLEY LABS CHINOOK SPECIAL EDITION MKII , BRYSTON 4BSST @ 4 ohms ( 500W per channel ) to 2 Magnepan 1.7s with 2 1000W Velodyne MicroVee Powered Subwoofers.
