Thanks Kevin but if English is difficult for me Russian is impossible.

I think the popular Russian 6N6P is a good near-equivalent for 5687. (Different pin-out and heater wiring.) They're not as cheap as they used to be, but they're not insanely expensive (yet).

JJ ECC99 is probably the best near-equivalent if you need something that's being made today. Again, has a different pin-out from 5687 or Bendix 6900.

5687 is not terribly expensive, is it?
