RFT stands for Rundfunk- und Fernmelde-Technik - a group of state-owned technology companies in the former German Democratic Republic (East Germany). This company produced valves for Telefunken and Siemens and made the famous Siemens EL34. These valves are of very good quality and have excellent consistency.
The RFT ECC82 was rebranded and used by just about every manufacturer under their own brand. I have seen these branded Brimar, Telefunken, AEG and Siemens to name just a few.

The RFT was also re branded by CONRAD JONSON and used in many of its top line audio preamplifiers. The valve has a supreme openness and sound stage and offers high end audio performance. The character of the RFT is a tight bass with well-balanced mids, the top end response is clean and detailed.

The RFT valve offers high quality performance that outperforms many expensive brands and is a first choice in many high grade audio sets up
