Those valves have the most gorgeous, sonorous & full mid that I heard from a low/mid mu, noval format tubes.

    The other less relaxed alternative would be the 6N1P from the 60s or 6N5P from the late 50s. Those valves have a very dynamic sound character in our circuit and have nice and full mid bass.

    Sure, I hope that you will be pleased with the results. Please bear in mind that like everything else in audio it is a matter of careful matching with the rest of the system.
