    Does anyone have any experience with these tubes? I have heard good things about them through the Tube Depot. I currently have Sovtek WE's and I am not impressed.
     
  2. I have experience with them. Mostly good. Some bad. Tone is pretty good but sorta wish I had my 30 year old Tung-Sols back sometimes.

    PBG could shed better light than me. He has experience with a broader array of brands.

    I have these in one of my DB728's and had them in my SVT CL. I like them better than the Sovteks as they seem a bit cleaner and more powerful.

    I have 'em in my SVT-II non pro... I'd agree with JGR's post. A little more clean headroom, a little tighter bottom. I don't think they sound as nice when they start breaking up though. Still great for a clean sound.

    Check out the Sovtek KT88, much better value than the SED tubes. ANd they sound alot better than the Sovtek 6550s.
