SET tube replacement

I have an SET with China tubes that I want to replace. They are two 12au7's and two EL84's
Any one have a good combination that I could try? Vintage prefered. Let me know what you think.

For EL84's, try JJ. Vintage ones are overpriced. 12AU7's are a dime a dozen, don't waste your money on the expensive super premiums -- if you want vintage, look for 5963's or 5814's. Same tube as the 12AU7 and vintage generally cost $5 to $8.

how would the 5963's or 5814's compare to new 12au7's
