The distortion spectra of triodes or JFETS depend on the bias point selected. JEFETís need not be biased to the flat end of their performance curves where they look like pentodes. The left hand end of the JFET curve family slope and look more like triodes and produce even, mostly 2nd, harmonics. It is all fun!

The point is that JFETís need friends too. That will leave more tubes to us diehards. I like 6BQ7ís and black plate 5670ís. The 5670 will roll right in the circuit in post number 1.

But I like output transformers.. I might like SITs too..
Seriously though you do make some good points and I am a participant in the zen>sen>cen thread current conveyor thread - should be more fun than the monolithic devices I'm currently using. More tubes for us can't hurt either..

Can you give me your opinions on which of the Russian 6N3P versions -E, -EB, -EV have good specs. I am using a Yarland FV34C111 which originally came with Chinese 6n3 valves. Iíve just replaced these with Russian 6N3P-EB which need more run in time to make any assessments, there seems to be an improvement over the Chinese valves already, I realize the ac voltage adjustments need to be made to these input tubes for a better comparison.
Very informative thread as far as 6n3ís being suitable for audio.
