The newly produced TELEFUNKEN E88CC-TK gold pin tube resurrects the transparent tone and harmonic impact of historical Siemens and TELEFUNKEN tubes. Whether it is installed in a phono stage or microphone preamplifier, this E88CC-TK will breathe new life into all audio equipment offering precise imaging, unmatched dynamics and a large full-bodied soundstage.
Also known as the 6922, the E88CC was originally targeted for test equipment and radar. The E88CC has medium gain, low noise and is a favorite for tight sounding audio input stages. There are some that will argue that the E88CC is the best sounding input tube ever designed.
The E88CC is a dual triode tube like the 12AX7, but has a different pin configuration making it not a direct plug-in replacement. It is most commonly employed in amplifier designs where more clean headroom is desired. The medium gain characteristic of the tube and the low-noise design are part of why this tube sounds as good as it does in microphone preamplifier and phono preamplifier applications.
TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik will not be held responsible (financially or otherwise) for equipment that is damaged from the use of tubes purchased from us. Each tube has been fully tested to ensure reliability and is guaranteed to perform as described. It is the responsibility of the customer to consult with the equipment manufacturer (or qualified technician) for the selection of proper tubes and proper installation and biasing procedures.
