Known tube upgrades for Jan Philips 5814-A???

MY CD player uses the above referenced tubes; anyone know if there are better tubes to be had, or are the philips 5814s a good tube?

Most European-made Ecc82 will sound better than your Phillips ECG 5814, which is a military spec version of the 12au7.
Feel free to email if you have more questions, I have a large collection of those tubes and know well the sound of most brands.
Good luck
