Default Yaqin SD-CD2 tube buffer - upgrading stock tubes

I just ordered a Yaqin tube buffer and I'm wondering which tubes to get to replace the stock ones. It seems like a lot of people like the sound of the Mullard EF95 tubes but those seem to be hard to find.

I contacted my local electronics store to see if they had the Mullard EF95 tubes and this was their response.

"EF95/6AK5/5654W
We have a 5654W National brand USA $ 9.30"

Are the 5654W tubes the same as the EF95? What other tubes can I get that would be an upgrade over the stock ones?

There are Yaqin CD2 buffer's still available for less than $100 because the newer model CD3 is out and sells for around $180 on ebay. I ordered a CD3 a few days ago and ordered a matched pair of Sylvania 6F8G/VT-99 black t-plates & socket adapters to replace the Chinese tubes. I plan to put it between my PlayStation3 and Sony solid state receiver--the PS3 acts as my media & CD player. It's currently connected with an optical cable and I'm going to leave that in place and also attach the PS3 with RCA cables with the CD3 buffer so I have the choice to go pure digital or run the buffer.
