You made a generic question.
What kind of amp? What kind of tubes you have?
Btw, if you own USA nos tubes, I imagine you have better tubes than russian.

Anything that requires that many colours of fount to advertise it is almost certainly bollocks.

PS The "shift" key is at the left of the keyboard - please use it.
The loudspeaker: The only commercial Hi-Fi item where a disproportionate part of the budget isn't spent on the box. And the one where it would make a difference...

I you want to improve the sound of your amp may I suggest a matched quad of JJ Tesla EL84 to replace the Sovteks. I'm confident you will enjoy the improvement. It made a large difference to my EL84 Amp.
