Excellent Tube

10 December 2020
I have combined these tubes with the Gold Lion KT77 in my Primaluna Evo 200. Very happy with the upgrade. Well worth the investment as they provide a great listen.

Nice detail is the best attribute. Otherwise lacking the lively sparkle, deep bass and ambience of the best vintage tubes especially British ones.

Good for managing gain

The 12AU7 tube is useful too reduce excessive gain. The brand is very reliable and consistent and arrived fast and in correct order.
