Owned a pair and found them hard to beat for price versus performance. High points- bass, imaging & transparency. Low points - not beautiful. Need power to open up and sound their best. Wish I had kept them...... 
6L6 and 807 in place of KT88?
Studio is on point. The particular tube characteristics were used in designing the amp circuit. If it was not designed to accept other power tube families you risk damaging the amp, destroying tubes and/or having crappy sound with substitutes. Per...

Are mono tube amps my best choice?

Opinions on Full-Range/single driver speakers
