The New Standard: Hand-Selected and Rigorously Tested

Unlike most tubes available today that are New Old Stock (NOS), ours are brand new, hand-selected, and rigorously-tested to meet our strict quality standards. By bypassing the unpredictable quality of NOS and instead choosing our freshly minted tubes, we’re making the sublime audio experience of vacuum tubes more accessible.

Sonic Brilliance

With Ray Vacuum Tubes, your favourite tracks take on a whole new dimension. These tubes deliver sparkly and precise high-end with bass that’s punchy and tight. Hi-hats cut through with clarity, while vocals are soulful, textured, and realistic. With impressive depth and separation, these tubes promise sound that’s clear, resolving, and an absolute delight to your ears.

The Art of Selection

Our vacuum tubes aren’t just “off the shelf”. Our sound engineer conducts a thorough, multi-phase testing process to ensure each tube meets our strict voltage, current, and Ray sound signature standards. Fewer than 5% of the tubes we commission for production make the cut.

Ceramic Collar: Nothing Better Than a Classic

Sometimes, doing things the old way is better. And when it comes to building materials, there are few things older than ceramic, which has been beloved by humans for its resilience and heat resistance for over 30,000 years. We chose premium ceramic for the collar of the 6SN7 Select because it’s incredibly resilient against high temperatures, making it an ideal material for vacuum tubes, which can generate a lot of heat during operation. Plus, ceramic is robust against wear and tear, making it able to withstand the rigors of regular use for years to come.

Silk-Screen Printed Logos

Even our logos deserve a special mention. Silk-screen-printed onto the tubes, they demonstrate our commitment to superior craftsmanship down to the smallest detail. This time-honoured printing technique yields results that are not only aesthetically pleasing but also durable, ensuring the design work remains vibrant and intact over time.

Settling into Your Soundscape

To get the most out of your Ray Tube, we recommend a burn-in time of at least 6 hours. Just plug the tubes in and leave the amplifier on. While there’s no need to play music during burn-in, you can if you’d like to hear for yourself how the tubes change over this remarkable period in their lifecycle.

Keeping Your Tubes Tip-Top

A little care can go a long way in extending the life of your Ray Tubes. Let them warm up for about 5 minutes before each listening session. When removing the tubes, pull vertically while applying a slight rocking motion back and forth.

Rest Easy

With warranty covering you for twelve months against manufacturing defects, you can relax knowing that your purchase is protected.
