Been around for a few years..
Glorified Chinese tube.
I'd take a Sylvania at a fraction of the cost

I bought a pair and promptly returned them.
Over priced and noisy!

jnaudio,

I have a pair that I use in my line stage. They have a clear high end with some sparkle but I have heard old stock tubes with better bottom end. I think it might depend on where you intend to use them and with what associated gear.

Some enthusiasts are just dead set against new production tubes but I will agree they are over priced for what you're getting. Old stock tubes offer much better value.

I recommend trying them for yourself. You may like them.

My 2 cents,

Audiois1st
