New
New from Tung-Sol! You want more power? The Tungsol KT150 tube is quite possibly the answer. This beast is rated for 70W plate dissipation! That's 10W more than the already impressive Tung-Sol KT120 tube.
 
From the manufacturer: "With the new KT150, Tung-Sol continues to lead in the audio power tube, power game. After the introduction of the highly successful Tung-Sol KT120, Russia's premier vacuum tube inventor, Valery Krivtsov, in collaboration with Irusha Bitukova and a team of ExpoPUL tube designers, set to work in our laboratories to develop an even more powerful audio output tube.
 
    With a massive plate dissipation of 70 watts, the Tung-Sol KT150 is the most powerful octal beam tetrode ever produced. A pair of KT150s can allow an amplifier with a power output approaching 300 watts to be built.
 
    The Tung-Sol KT150 glass envelope is a special egg shaped balloon that was developed to improve thermal dissipation and maintain a superior vacuum for the best sound. The fact that the glass envelope has no flat sides means the Tung-Sol KT150 has no problems with microphonics.
 
    The manufacturers who are developing amplifiers to use this tube have reported that the Tung-Sol KT150 sounds great in all power amplifier configurations including single-ended, triode connected and ultra-linear. The tone signature of the Tung-Sol KT150 is characterised by a strong bass signature with balance and clarity throughout the audio frequency spectrum."
 
Note: Ayon Audio is using KT120 and / or KT150 tubes in all their amplfiers (except Orion). Check with your amp's manufacturer to confirm the KT150 tube will work in your amp. It has higher heater current draw (~20%) than typical KT88 tubes.
