Yes, your pics are of LP's...

My personal taste (in my setup) goes to those and the much later production SP mentioned.

I have quite a few of the Blackburn Ecc82's produced in the interim between the "Two" which are labelled standard Mullard as well as IEC Mullard & Daystrom (sp?) and I much prefer the expensive LP's and the less inexpensive later SP versions.

However, considering excessive noise the later SP's, properly screened would be a fine alternative, IMO.

I've read about the "special" current production 12au7's, but as they cost more than I've ever paid for old production (including LP's) I've yet to try any.

If you click on my system you will see that the electronics are separated from the listening room by a wall, but even with this I've experienced a few problems with micro phonic tubes.
