Those kind of words are going to be subject to interpretation buy your speakers, your musical tastes, your associated equipment, your mood that day, and many more things that have nothing to do with the construction of the tube itself.

Get a few and try them. I will say that the current production tubes, both European and Asian are surprisingly good.

Good to hear that the current production of 6V6's are fine and dandy. I have the Tung-Sol reissues from Russia and they seem very good to me. However, my former experiences with 6SN7's surely confirms that there are significant differences between tubes, like for example that Sylvanias are brighter than RCA's. Some sort of universal descriptions should still be possible as long as we don't talk about "good sound" or "bad sound".

I prefer the USA (or post WW 2 European equivalents) NOS tubes... Sylvania, RCA and all the other brands that were just rebranded major brands.

I believe the cathode / heater design and construction is far superior in the these tubes as well as the metals used for the plate and other parts of the tube.

Found a place to download Vacuum Tube Valleys issue 10. Much to read for those of us with interest in the 6V6 Index of /roehren/VTV
