    I found Harma Cryo 7025's were good in my phono stage, maybe not the best ever but really good.

    In a similar vein, I picked up a variety of tubes from Brel & Kjr when they were closing their UK service centre in Harrow. The good news, not that I realised it at the time, was that the tubes were NOS Telefunkens. As for the best ECC83, I'd rate those Telefunkens as the nicest and most musical tubes that I've tried, but French military RT valves were pretty good too.

    The very best ECC83 ie Mullard Telefunken et al are crazy prices
    You may do better with 5751 and the best of them seems to be Sylvania triple mica
    Also I have GE triple mica JHS black plate in my pre and they sound damn good to me

    Hi guy's I just started with a tube amp, it is a cheap chinese nobsound NS-01P I first had the chinese original valves, then I changed for the JJ Ecc83, but changed them for the JJ Ecc803 long plate gold pin. I quite like the sound, I never tried the nos valves, it would be interesting to be able to swap some valves to compare. Maybe when I am rich

    Rob, don't sweat it, everyone likes those JJ ECC803 long plates. You've probably made the most cost effective choice possible with new tubes, respect!

    I've tried most vintage types over the years and in my equipment the best, by some distance, is the foil getter welded plate '58-'63 Tungsram. A quite stunning tube...

    Default Ultimate ECC83?

    These without a shadow of a doubt:



    Blows everything else I've heard so far into the weeds, including NOS Telefunkens, Tungrams, Teslas, Amperex Bugle Boys and (any) Mullards - just breathtakingly beautiful sound!! If you can find any, Andy, buy with confidence, and prepare to re-evaluate how much difference quality NOS valves can make...
