The 6N1P has similar ratings to the 6DJ8 and in the past was sometimes rebranded as such, however differences between the two types the 6N1P requires almost twice the filament current and has only one third the S value mean they are not directly interchangeable.
The S is about 4. However, the 6N1P is typically more linear for a given load. It is therefore inaccurate to say that these two tubes are identical. It has currently found a use as a driver tube in hi-fi tube amplifiers such as Audio Research models VS55 and VS because of its excellent low distortion and low noise characteristics.
The tube is manufactured by the "Voskhod" plant in KalugaRussia see  and is distributed in the West under the Sovtek and Svetlana brand names. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Categories : Vacuum tubes.
When I search for them on the net, I come across three tubes: - 6n1j or 6n1 j-grade, it's said - 6n1p or 6n1p-ev - 6h1n I have no idea about this one. BTW, Fatman iTube's manual, also, suggests the same.

I want to ask, what do "j" or "p" or 6h1n itself stand for in those 6n1 tubes' designations? Are they direct, 1-to-1 replacements for 6n1 tubes in my HCT amp?
Welcome to AudioCircle, cafyon! The 6N1P has very similar electrical ratings but they aren't an exact match so it will depend on whether the mfr will recommend it or not. Not much help, I know, but maybe someone else can chime in.

Its a betweener, somewhere between a 2C51 and a Supposedly sounds great in the right circuit though. The russian 6N23P is the equivalent of the 6DJ8. I had a preamp that used 6N1P. The manufacturer said no other tube would work. So I compared the stock tube to 15yo Svetlanas and to vintage military 6N1P from the 60s. They all sucked. The manufacturer changed the design soon after to use more common tubes. I love their 12au7 as used in EE products.
Certainly the fatman was voiced using the Shuguang tube rather than a russian. I'd stick with it. Grab an extra so you won't miss any tunes it one fails. I don't mean to be combatitive, but the 12au7 is one of the highest distortion tubes in extant and not just pleasing low order, but substantial high order distortion as wellat least amongst those used in audio, while the 6N1P is quite linear low distortion. All the reports I've read about the Chinese 6N1Ps haven't been kind in terms of reliability while the soviet era 6N1P-ev's are suppose to be bullet proof.
Go figure.Thought some like to know some info after much painfully researching. It is closer to the 6DJ8 but draws more current. Find More Posts by Giaime.
That's nice link but he is showing the 6N1 as a Russian 6N1P which many seem to do. That link is full of errors, I already know it when I made the article shown on my website that was the link.
Look closely, ECC85 has a mu of 55, a gm of 6. I can't understand what you find close to a tube 6N1 or 6N1P - no difference, one is chinese other is russian that has mu of 35, gm of 4. Maybe they're compatible pin-to-pin, but so does 12AX7 and 12AU7.
Single Ended Class-A-Holism is addictive!!! Find More Posts by Wavebourn. Ok do you have a real spec sheet on the chinese 6N1? Also some suggest even using a 6AU7 in it's place I am surely not saying you are wrong it just seems you can not find a real 6N1 data sheet If you know where to find one please post a link here Again Wavebourn is talking about 6N1P not the 6N1 which seems to be different tubes.
We need a Chinese or Hong Hong user to chime in here! This very rough approximation gets copied around enough places by people who have never seen a 6N1 or 6N1P i. BB code is On. Smilies are On.

Availability: Usually ships within 24 hours. Quantity discounts available. Quantity Price. Add to Cart. Description Additional info The Russian 6N1P-EB is a small signal dual triode intended for use as a line level amplifier or driver in high quality audio amplifiers. These tubes are often found relabeled by Sovtek or Svetlana. Except for higher heater current, the 6N1P is similar to 6DJ8, ECC88 or types and may substitute for these types in some high level audio applications.
Check with your equipment manufacturer before using this tube as a sub for these types. The 6N1P tube is equivalent to the Chinese 6N1 tube. However we find they cause hum when used in Yaqin tube amps. For these we suggest you upgrade to a different tube type. Features include very low distortion, medium transconductance, higher plate-voltage and dissipation rating than 6DJ8 types, and larger cathode than 6DJ8 types.
This gives it longer life and more transient current capability.

I love and appreciate tube based audio gear and own sixteen pieces of tube gear between my two reference systems.
Without a thorough knowledge of tube types and their substitution possibilities, you may be over-paying for your new or NOS tubes you employ, or just pick the wrong ones. This data is based on my experience, and input from my electrical engineering audiophile friends. Knowledge is power, and knowing an unusual substitute may be a true joy. Small Signal Tubes:. The GE is a bargain basement musical giant!
The Mullard CV is still fairly cheap, plentiful, and magnificent. The bargain priced PCC88, the 7 volt version of this tube, works nicely in the vast majority of 6 volt applications. Buy it used, but checked, if necessary.
A killer tube, but huge and requires lots of space bigger than a KT Other Dual Triode Tubes:. The available brands of these tubes are highly variable musically and microphonically. The Electro Harmonix is very good, too. Same comment as 6SN7 type. Output Tubes:. Am told the NOS Mullard prices are strong, but worth it. Lots to choose from.
Usually your manufacturer tuned the gear to a certain brand of these.LJ 6DJ8 ECC88 Tube Line Buffer
Be mindful of that before you spend tons of money on vintage NOS versions that end up not sounding as good. At least try KT88s! Same comment as EL34 type. I would!

HelloDoes any one have any idea what tubes can replace the Chinese 6N1 tube? Last edited by jazbo8; 28th October at AM. Reason: Spelling. Russian 6N1P-EB. Do you have a schematic of how and where the 6N1 tube is used? The chinese 6n1 is a sick and very different puppy, but very often, tube amp manufacturers design around the russian 6n1p and plugin chinese toys afterwards. Find More Posts by OneyedK. I've plugged in philips sq e88cc and fried them.
The Russians 6n1p-eb i have all seem noisy.

May edited May I may finally be buying decent tubes for my headphone amp after I returned KC's demo tubes and put the stock Chinese ones back in. I haven't heard much about them in any tube talk. I've been focusing more on another amp lately. Even leaving the quad of Shuguang EL34s, the amp is sounding amazingly better.
El34 Amp. JPG June edited June Out of the individual tube reviews I was able to find online they appear to be a quality made tube with a great sound, if you can find them. I'm assuming that since they aren't one of the popular audiophile tube companies, and the fact that the company all together was lost in antiquity, they are less expensive even if they do sound good.
I have 2 pairs of the very rare gold pin's that can sub for 12AT7's and they are a very nice sounding tube.
