6P15P (6П15П)

All tube operating points below are by no means definitive good sound recipe for your particulate tube project. Lowest THD point is not necessary best sounding one and there is always some variance even in a NOS tube batch from the same manufacturer!  Below information is only useful as a general starting point and is ment to get you in a ballpark when no measurement equipment is available.

Lowest THD operating point spectrum

10mA, -6V BIAS

Recommended operating point spectrum

40mA, -3.4V BIAS

Traced plate curves


Very similar to 6P14P (=EL84) but with higher voltage rating, yet dissipation is limited to 12W. At optimum BIAS point spectrum is cleaner too.
