Talking KT 88 or 6550

Hi,

have heard the Chinese and EH, sweetness is not there. heard a lot about Tung-sol, Winged C and Gold lion reissue. anyone can share some comments.
thanks.

I think the EH's are very good. Try the Svet winged C or JJ (no experience with latter)

I have both the Winged C 6550s and the Gold Lion reissue. They're both nice tubes. I find that for my taste, in the current system set up I have, that I prefer the Gold Lions. The Winged C 6550s are a powerful tube, more pronounced in the high end; a bit in your face, at least in my system. The Gold Lions are more laid back so, to my ears, they sound a bit more detailed and dynamic.

As far as I've heard the New Sensor Gold Lion reissue tubes have no reliability issues.

Try doing a search over at Audio Asylum. Lots of people saying they like this tube, no reported problems that I've come across.
