Yes. In my case there were no differences in the voltage or current readings between the two. No red plates. No performance difference that I can tell. I ran both versions at 475V like shown in the schematic I posted.
It is interesting though, that there seems to be an intermediate variety of these. When you compare the plates though, they are very different than the smaller "glossy" black plates in the original version.
Please keep me informed of your experience with these.

So, from what you're saying I may infer that the top getter 'super' 6BG6GAs are functionally the same as the side getter, big, gray, plate 6BG6GAs? If so, good news.
