Telefunken ECC803S Germany Posted on February 8, 2014 by tubemaze (16 votes, average: 3.44 out of 5)Loading...“ecc803s was not magical at all, it sound like great solid state without and sign of 50s euro tubes typical bloom” ReadShare this post:
Well, finally – the king of the tubes – at least based on the price. Not as high as Western Electric 300b, but for a 12ax7 tube, it’s really high. I put it against Tesla E83CC, which is an exact copy and the results, well… they sound the same. This is a wonderful tube, the best of the best and one of my very favorite, but the cost is crazy! Think about it $600-700 for Telefunken vs $70-100 for Tesla. If the sound is what you are looking for, go for Tesla, if the brand is what you are looking for go for Teles.
Other than that read our reviews of Tesla – they are the same.
