Philips Amperex was an American company that re-labeled tubes from many sources. Many were from Heerlen, Holland (with a delta-shaped factory etch code) The Bugle Boy 12AX7 was made in the Heerlan factory. There were at least five different distinct variations of that tube type, depending on the date of manufacturing.
Tube aficionado's know these tubes to be and sound among the best ever made!!!!
These tubes have most quiet, low noise distinct sonic characteristics and sound very good, no modern current made tubes are quite as good as these vintage tubes!
Philips owns Amperex and made + sold tubes stamped-branded Electrohome which bought tubes from Phillips, and the tubes they used are the same design, and had the same final testing as Amperex, Philips or Bugle Boy tubes.
These are early 1960's Philips Amperex 12AX7 / 7025A "hi fi" low noise version of the 12AX7. All other specifications are the same as 12AX7. Some of these tubes were factory doubled stamped marked with 12AX7 and 7025 both These are special non-microphonic and low hum, noise version of the 12AX7 These are the Philip's Amperex made vintage 1960-64, branded Electrohome These tubes were exclusively produced + tooled and built the exactly as Amperex Bugle Boys, being wholesaled in bulk by Philips only for the organ grade market offering "premium" version of the European (Holland) made 12AX7.
This is the "premium" version of the European 12AX7. The "S" on the ECC803S means "select" version. These are usually found on certain Amperex brand tubes only. These have extra thick mica spacers and extra support rods to minimize microphonic response. Late versions produced by Philips/ECG did not perform as well as these older produced tubes did,and do! Were not as well known as their brother Bugle Boys because they were only made for a few short years by Philips All these Philips Amperex branded Electrohome, most are NOS,some used for 20 hours as burn ins.

The company was also involved in television broadcasting, and was a leader in data, video, graphics displays and projectors.

The company underwent an orderly wind-up in late 2008. In February 2010, the Electrohome brand was acquired by Bluetronics Group a division of Circus World Displays Limited (CWD).
