RE: rectifier tubes.

I get the reliability issue of old Mullard, GE and Syl 5AR4's as opposed to the new manu recto's...but can you please explain the "tone" difference you experience?
If it's a matter of a circuit voltage change, either + or -, I can see that to a certain extent..but what else changes the tone?
