Yeah.... Awnser is NO !

But thats not the "bad news" you not like to hear.

Max7219 work fine if you know how to work with.

Use Google..... Use Forum Search.
Without big knowledge and work you can use a MAXTube with removeble Diggits ( Green PCB) and you can build a "connector" with a piece of Breakout board and some Pins.
OR you buy for some dollars a premade PCB that is designed for that.

Check "Helimech" Videos on Youtube. He show a lot of interesting ways how to use MaxTubes with a little solderwork.

Also note that you not be limmited to the 8 Digit Blocks. You can easy wire each display ( common cathode) of every color, size and digitnumber.
Good Luck !
