I just purchased a pair of Tungsram ECC81's.  I am using them in the second row, with Amperex ECC81's in the first row and CBS 12AU7's in the third how.  The Tungsram replaced a pair of 13D9's that I got with my Nighthawk.  I was wondering what configurations other's who bought the Tungsram are using.  The change I made just seems to make the sound a little different.

Scotty,

My original configuration was done with Jame's help.  We have similar taste in music.  I am also using Raven speakers.  He was running Amperex in run one, Yellows T's in row 2 and CBS's in row 3.  Since I had 13d9's he felt if I bought the Amperex and the CBS I would have around 85% of what he had.  I did not fell I wanted to spend the cost of the Yellow T's. I was going to replace the 13d9's with Brimar cv4024's, but Dave told me to try the Tungsram instead.  So I bought 2 sets of the and the same RCA's you have.  My back up set becomes the 13d9's with the Tungsram and the RCA's. The sound is very hollow graphic and very musical.  Vocals are in the room.

TUNGSRAM ECC81'S are now completely out of stock unfortunately.  I tried to update my list but apparently that isn't possible anymore.

 

Sorry everyone!

Glad I bought 2 sets when they first came in.

Attached are some pictures of the newest tubes being added to the Raven Audio Texas tube collection.  I am adding them to my list.  We are constantly running short and completely out of some tubes, and I am always on the lookout for pristine NOS tubes.  So these are some new acquisitions.  I have also started listening them and will soon be listing their virtues in Dave's Dozen & Then Some - earlier on this forum post.
