PCF200 Pentode Part

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, -3.5V BIAS, 200Va

Other operating points

5mA, -5.5V BIAS, 260Va
 2.5mA, -6V BIAS, 260Va

Interesting tube. Pentode part has much cleaner spectrum then triode. And just look at that linear region! Basically no change in THD from 5 to 10mA. Marvelous. Available for sale.
