PCL200 Triode 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

7.5mA, -2.17V BIAS, 240Va

Recommended operating point spectrum

NR2, 5mA, -2.9V BIAS, 260Va

Other operating points

 2.5mA, -1.77V BIAS, 150Va

Traced plate curves


Marvelous triode!  THD and spectrum is very similar to 1/2 E88CC just with a higher μ. Curves looks like ECC81, but order of magnitude more linear. Another sleeper tube.
