Well, let’s talk Genalex now. This is considered to be the best of the best 6AS7G tubes, and it sure it, but…
The tube sounds very nice – sound signature is very similar to Mullard 6080, but a bit more air, a bit more details, but that is at the cost of warmth and lusciousness. As Nick stated in his review above – it’s clinical. I personally like warmth of Mullards and to me the tubes sounded great, but not my favorite. I compared it to Tung-Sol 5998 and WE 421A. Western Electric was a clear winner.
Still a lovely tube that is disappearing fast and will soon be a thing of the past. 🙁
