It was the tube of choice for the late Gary Dodd in all of his preamps. In most circuits the Russian equivalents work well and sound pretty darn good. There are lots of options that are not especially pricey; even the J.J.'s are decent.
In my experience even an inexpensive set of NOS 6922s sound better than JJs. If I buy equipment that comes with JJs the first thing I do is replace them.
I’m curious to know what you think a 6922-based tube preamp does for your music. What are its strong points? What are its weak points? If you want to compare it to another tube, go for it. I ask this because I recently bought a Taiwanese manufactured 6922eh tube preamp, which is still breaking in, and I wonder what others think.Once mine has another 75 to 100 hours burn in, I’ll let you know how it sounds. Thank you,Michael

When I return to the 6922 it always sounds good at first, but over a couple days I get fatigued.
if you in USA,i could loan you a pair of amperex gold pint 6922 to try it out,before you spend money on them.lap
Likewise, I've got a ton of extras that I can send your way- Russian, Amperex, Tungsrams. I really like the older Austrian Valvo 7dj8 D getters... but they're two or three times the price of new for a good pair.
