Schiit Freya + ordered: any suggestions for 6SN7 tubes?

We'll see but I'm given to believe that the Freya + is now shipping with Tung-Sol 6SN7GTB's. These are supposedly pretty decent, but I know that tube rolling can make a difference.

So, any suggestions for 6SN7 tubes? I'm not too interest in super pricey NOS tubes but am still interested in options.\

Also the Freya + uses a cathode follower topology, (which they are calling "semi-circlotron follower"). Is it important that the input and follower stages use the same tubes? Is one stage more critical to the sound than the other?

For example: Don Sachs is now loading his well-regarded custom VTA SP-14-based preamps with CV181 tubes in both stages. Thetubestore.com is now selling Natural Sound CV181-T's for Us$120; that would be my very limit and only assuming they made a real difference at one stage.
