I did not mean that..I'm sorry. I have a pair of SET mono blocks that use a pair of 845s each amp. that's the reason I asked if you might have 2 matched pairs of the ACME 845s....good luck with your sale..Dave

Unfortunately, just one pair. No worries dave. Well the only reason I'm posting here is I don't have an ebay account that would allow me to post something at this kind of value, and in Dubai, its a smallish market for such things. I figured forums might be useful to reach out end users like me who would appreciate a cheaper, barely used tubes!

I don’t like eBay. You could try listing on usaudiomart.com. It’s free and has high volume and high end tubes will easily sell there.

Are they authorized resellers for Psvane also?
Yes they are. I also bought a pair of ACME 805's and a pair of ACME 300B's from them. One of the 805's arrived with a broken internal filament even though well packed. The dealer got Psvane factory to replace with a new pair that has been functioning fine - and sounds great. I do wonder if Psvane has some QC issues though ...

I would be interested in the Acme 845 tubes. How much are you looking to get for them? How many hours do they have on them?
Thank You.

Hi all,
Just wanted to share some info. Have ordered a pair of ACME A805, directly from GD-Parts in China, for my LM-508IA. They have been running for over 50 hrs now without any issues. Regarding about the red glow issue, I have yet to encounter it. Also, noticed there is a printed card in the box that mentioned this.

I find that Mullard ECC35 suited more to my taste
Likewise. I have an early 60s Mullard ECC35 that I use in the 6SL7 socket that I prefer above all others I've tried in my LM805ia. I'm interested in trying the ACME 805's. Right now I'm running RCA 805's which are also very good.

yeah, I enjoy the ECC35 so much that I have just grabbed another pair of 60s black base tall glass from Langrex. Presently, I have 3 50s brown base and 4 60s black base, all tall glass. In the mean time, inquiring another pair of brown base. What are your thoughts on the sound character of each variety? They all sounded more or less same to me regardless of production date and location.

P.S. My apology to all, didnt mean to hijack this thread. I will stop here.

Thank you for the info @tlowe ! So, do you feel the difference just as they describe it? Did it really "gradually stabilize" after first 50hrs of usage?

I have had a great couple years with my 4 ACME 845 tubes. The retailer I used no longer carries them and I want to get a backup quad set.
Does anyone have a recommended seller for quality and matching?

Yes but not so drastically as they described it. Perhaps my ears are getting old or due to my system setup. Anyway, they are very much better and smoother compared to the stock on my LM-508IA. IMO, yes, it is worth the upgrade.
