    What are the latest recommendations for KT88s for these amps? A couple tubes broke in shipping and I'm going to replace the sextet (and get it rebiased).

    Previous posts had good things to say about Sovteks and JJs (more $$). I've also heard good things about Electro-Harmonix, though I understand these are actually Sovtek. I also understand (per "Gavin", former Trace Service Mgr) that the stock Trace KT88s (Chinese KT88s made by "PMI") were pretty good, but Trace moved away from these in favor of Sovteks. So I'm leaning towards Sovteks but would love to hear other recs. Any insights appreciated...
