RE: Opinions on 6P3S for Hi-Fi ?

We were tube rolling in modded Dynaco ST-70s that belonged to my brother and another friend. We unanimously preferred the 6P3S-e over the 6P3S, however we never tried them at lower voltage. We were running them right at 20-21 watts dissipation, not far from your 18-19 watt area of interest. How they stack up to other 6L6s, I don't know, the only other tubes we rolled were EL34s (Mullards), and older stock JJ E34Ls (both tube types broken in). We didn't have a high opinion of the 6P3s, but to be fair they weren't broken in, but neither were the 6P3S-Es which we preferred over all.
