Yesterday I recieved a new pair of tubes. I put them in and they were not good. Made me appreciate the ones I'm using. Both are 6SN7s from the 1940s but vastly different performance.

Many people describe ICs like a wine reviewer writing for Wine Spectator. ...and a hint of manure....often more than a hint. My belief is that passive components can only take away, they don't add. So if both ICs sound a like, neither is removing much of the goodness.
