FOR SALE: 6H30 / 6N30P-DR / 6H30N-DP / 6H30DR 1980's Military Grade Reflector Super Tubes Matched Pair
Okay, here is the short version:
I am selling brand new old stock Reflector 6H30 vintage tubes that are from sealed / original factory boxes (see pictures), opened only for testing and matching.
This listing is for one matched pair. Most of the tubes that I have are dated 1986. Just email me via USAudioMart. Thank you!
Do yourself a BIG favor, get these for your audio component. This is a brand new vintage matched pair of 1986 military grade Reflector / Reflektor Super Tubes / supertubes. Get excited when you find them in New condition like the ones listed here.
Note: Many audio circles shorten the tube type number and refer to them as 6H30DR tubes.
Tip: Check the date before you buy them. 6H30DR tubes from the 1980’s or earlier are considered the optimum . So check the date format (should be the format of MM YY) to distinguish if the tube is of vintage production or current production versions. The 6H30DR tubes were also manufactured after the 1980's by Sovtek but they kept the Reflector / Reflektor shield brand and look. So, even if they have the Reflector / Reflektor shield they may very well be newer / current production Sovtek.
I am a huge advocate of this tube. The audio quality surpasses anything that I have ever heard. I love the sound I get with these.
Great tubes for the:

This matched pair will have:
- Reflector / Reflektor Saratov shield: See photos
- Rhombus / Diamond Symbol
- Correct date and date format (this is a quick and easy way to tell if they are current production or NOS). Example: 07 86 is 1986. 04 79 is 1979. Year is derived from the second two digits. Some sellers are claiming the first two digits as the year so be informed. Example: 86 06 is 2006. Yes, that is tricky but it is the new or current production date format. The NOS version is the premium sounding version so look for something like 02 86 instead.
- Original Reflector / Reflektor tube boxes. You can see them in the photos.
- NOS Type on the tube is the Russian 6Н30П-ДР
Information about the letters and symbols:
ДР = DR (Where D is extra-long life and R is extra high reliability)
OTK = Double Checked by Soviet State Quality Control
<> = Diamond or Rhombus stands for Russian Military
Tube rollers state that you will get a sound that has:
• Greater bass control
• Excellent detail (never sterile or cold) that is clean and crisp
• An audiophile grade soundstage
And I agree with the tube rollers!
One last fact: During the 1980's the Reflector / Reflektor factory had to adhere to an extremely strict regimen and production standard. All of the tubes approved from there during this time period had to have exceptional parameters for military purposes.
