Question Kr842vhd

Hi all!

I'm currently doing the research work for my first tube amp, and having decided for a 300B SET design, I came across an article about an amp using the KR842VHD triode.
It seems to be an almost direct replacement for a good 300B, but it is quite expensive. My question is: how does it compare to a svetlana 300b that is about half the price ?
Any good/bad experiences ?

thanks in advance,

I don't like to slam products too hard, but I wouldn't touch another KR product. Especially their tubes.I have repaired more of their amps due to blowing tubes than I care to think about.
When they work they sound great. But they don't stand up if run anywhere near max ratings.
