1959 Bendix 5992 (6V6) tubes.

I have a pair of Bendix 5992 tubes (drop in replacement for 6V6 tubes). I purchased these tubes brand new (unused) to use in my BAT VK-3i. I sold the VK-3i about 2 years ago and have nothing to use these in.

Bendix 5992 tubes are the absolute top of the line 6V6 tubes that were desigend (for the military) to be used in missles carying nuclear warheads. The design, tolerances, reliability, and longevity are all top notch (these have a 10,000 hour life span). These tubes are considered to be the best 6V6 tube one can buy, period.

I used these for about 500 hours in the VK-3i and have not used them since I sold the BAT. They are virtually new, but do have some time on them. The bass these put out bested any other 6V6 tube I tried in the VK-3i, hands down.

They do not have the original boxes, they are white boxes, but the labels (on the tubes) and tube condition are brand new. I will post pictures tomorrow.

I am asking $165.00 shipped. Payment via paypal (as a gift) or money order (or check if you are long standing member of the forum).

My response is: If you need 60 seconds to respond in one sentence, you probably should't be evaluating Polk speakers.....

    Here are some pictures for you all. I will also be listing some Pope 6V6GT tubes sold by Upscale Audio that have literally 10 hours on them. I bought them brand new.
