Valve audit time - JAN 6206/ CV5899

Just checking stock (as I do in the Spring) and I have a *lot* of these (>100), NIB...

JAN/CV 6206 / CK5899 datasheet

Any ideas, apart from headphone amps?

Low heater current ; quite a linear gain-stage in pentode mode at eg. 200V/4ma, for front-end of power amp ( buffered with CF ) or in a phono.
Otherwise not too exciting .....

They are designed for UHF, so will need to prevent them oscillating at RF.
 
I never make the same mistake twice. Instead I prefer to fill my day with a variety of different mistakes

Not exciting, but I have a lot of them... they can oscillate if you don;t take the usual precautions....

Must be something constructive...
