6SN7GTB Tung-Sol Tubes

In my Mapletree Audio 2A SE Linestage RCA 12SN7GTs are too stark and GE 12SX7GTs are too polite. Thus I am considering these from http://www.newsensor.com/ProductHighLight.aspx?ProId=1162 on a whim. Described as ...

Super linearity, low noise, and full performance ratings make this one of the best 6SN7 tubes ever made. The sound signature is on par with 5692 types. Excellent driver tube in high-end audio applications.

What do you think?
Any opinions on these in my pre or in general?
Any opinions on the web site as a source?
Haven't heard that particular 6SN7, but they're much cheaper here:


Rockadanny, The tubes in the link you provided are Sovtek, rebranded as Tung Sol.

New Sensor bought rights to Tung Sol and Mullard brand names a few years ago to add credibility to their Russian made tubes. Genuine Tung Sol are superior, provided they are not defective or worn out.

Here are some wonderful 1940's premium Tung Sol (real thing) with less than 20 hours left to bid at Ebay.

And here are some at Audiogon that look nice

I have no experience with your preamp, but I have a lot of experience with original Tung Sol tubes, they are some of the best made of this type. If you don't like the sound in your current piece they can be stored for another brand you may own in the future.

I have about 40 of these in my own tube collection along with RCA 5692, my other favorite that would work in the same place in your preamp. They are not making these any longer, they will continue to increase in value and are always good to have around.
Thank you David and Albert.
I have used these in the mapletree. Better extension at both ends than a lot of NOS tubes. Perhaps not as smooth as the RCA 6sn7 but you get more bass and sparkle.
Try tubedepot - got NOS Tungsols from them - very nice
