6H23P Valves (tubes) for the X-CAN V1/ V2 / V3 / V8 £36.00 per matched pair

Superb value, lovely warm sound and fantastic bass response, in my opinion these are the best sounding valves (on this side of sensible money!) you can feed your X-Can / X-10D etc. with. These have NEVER been used / genuine NOS.... don't confuse these with the used types (claiming to be NOS) you see elsewhere on the web, these are the genuine article from sealed / trusted Russian Military Surplus. Suitable to use either with the stock 500mA wallwart or Little Pinkie. Order Here



Mu-Vista Valves for Musical Fidelity X-10 V3 £28 per matched pair

Philips 6112 Valves


Contrary to what MF say, these valves DO wear out after time (all valves do) so if you want to give your X-10V3 a brand new lease of life then look no further! Brand new / in original boxes / sealed / JAN 6112 Philips. . These require soldering into position but it is quite a straightforward procedure if you know one end of an iron from another. Genuine sealed NOS from Military batch.

Gold plated Ceramic Valve sockets for X-CAN V1 / V2/ V3 and V8 £6 per pair

Simple to fit (direct drop in replacements for the existing sockets) and a cost effective upgrade. Requires soldering. Order Here £6 per pair
