Philips miniwatt SQ e88cc/6922
« on: 6 Nov 2017, 12:22 am »
I just picked up a pair of philips minwatt SQ nos tubes from1969 (heerlan plant holland)
Using them in my lio dac2.0 in my bedroom headphone rig,and WOW these are my favorite 6922 set that i have heard! They remind me of an old set of miniwatt dario 6922 tubes i use to have. I wonder if they are?
If anyone knows? Sweet highs,airy,quiet,just wonderfull. They can be had at tube depot.com

I just got my hands on several pairs of non-SQ version Miniwatt and blown away at how good there are. Even these are very resolute with huge body. I will have to try the SQ version someday, they must be amazing. I have a few extra if anyone interested.

Hi decur,

Thank you for posting about the Philips Miniwatt SQ tubes!

Nice find - never tried these.  I do love the Miniwatt Dario E188CC green labels, made in France.  Are these the ones you have, Nick77?

These are actually PCC88, I think there all from the same Heerlen plant.

Yes vinnie,
Those are the ones i picked up! I know the green miniwatt darios made in france e88cc/6922 are impossible to find these days,and i was wondering if the philps miniwatt SQ are a rebranded dario,or vice versa?
While listening to these philips,they remind me alot of the darios,but sound better. These tubes are the real deal.
A little pricey tho....

Curious, are these the same tubes as being discussed? $40 cheaper per tube...

Philips Miniwatt doesn't make the sound very bright in the lio?

I've had a LIO for about two weeks now with the stock tubes.  I'm not sure if they are the same as the Miniwatt Philips, but I just ordered these -

They were supposedly manufactured in India using the same parts as the Philips SQ 6922 Holland and were recommended to me by Upscale.
