If you are newbie to tube amp.Rogue Cronus will be good for first try since Rogue customer service is first rate.After tube rolling of input tubes, it sounds pretty nice.I have Telefuken 12ax7 and Amperex 12au7 with Cronus Magnum II.

One person claimed that best 1578 that he had heard was made in 63.There are many variations among the Nos tubes.I have three pairs of Raytheon vt231 but they sound different from each other.I also enjoy Russian 6n8s made in 53 with nice bass, air...

@lowrider57 i remember hearing noise tube made in 83 ( that I got from Audiomart) but not from tubes made in 80( Russian and Ebay).As I had played 6n8s tube for few days, I had not been playing 1578 for a while.
