6H23N Valves (tubes) for the X-CAN V1/ V2 / V3 / V8 £40.00 per matched pair

Superb valves, lovely warm sound and fantastic bass response, in my opinion these are the best sounding valves 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 6948 Valves for Musical Fidelity X-10 V3 £30 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.
