A KT88 tube that is in a league of it's own

The EAT KT88 has a designed maximum anode dissipation rating of 35W and is recommended for use in the output stage of an a.f. amplifier. Two valves in class AB1 give a continuous output of up to 100W. The KT88 is also suitable for use as a series valve in stabilized power supply. It's construction features include black plates, black metal base, and gold pins.

Valve Type: *KT88 DIAMOND*
Size including socket: 5.2 × 12.5 cm / 2 × 4.9 inch

Burn-in procedure:

  • Valves need to be burned-in within 50-100 hours under conditions shown in the specs
  • Correct burn-in will assure maximum lifetime and genuine sound
  • During the burn-in use different volume levels from the beginning, and increase the maximum volume gradually
  • Do not use stand-by mode during burn-in and let the tubes cool down after each use
  • Do not overdrive or tap on a working tube, this will cause permanent filament damage
  • Burn in with noise tools, burn in cd, radio noise, pink noise, etc.
  • Allow the valves enough air circulation

Warranty Certificate Download

EAT will replace the tubes providing the following conditions for all customers:

1. The tubes have a warranty of 12 months or 2000 hours of use starting with the date of purchase. The purchase data must be written and stamped by the distributor/dealer within 21 days after purchase (registration).

2. In the event of failure of the tubes, EAT or distributors/dealers will do replacement within valid warranty claims. The tubes must be returned with the original box & warranty certificate (date of purchase stamp-registration & complete return form) and prepaid shipment, otherwise warranty will be void.

3. Warranty is voided due to improper handling:

  • Make sure that the electrical specifications of your amplifier are correct before using tubes in your circuit.
  • Failure to follow this manufacturer’s recommendation may result in damage to your amplifier or valves and automatically voids this warranty.
  • The tubes should run at the standard specs (see technical data sheet ) and not steadily at the maximum values.
  • EuroAudioteam will not be liable for damage resulting from improper use of tubes in your amplifier. Abuse, accidental damage or incorrect use of the tube will be determined by EAT.
  • Only expert technicians can change the working points of the tube. Improper use of the tube or incorrect application of the tube to a circuit cannot be covered by our warranty.

Shipment procedure:

  • Use original box: Insufficient package for shipment is a cause of broken pieces inside of valve
  • Prevent tube from side shock
  • Shipment costs are covered by buyer
  • Returned tubes must include warranty certificate ( registration), return form and original package
