Re: Svetlana - would you say more about this?

Sound and reliability are the two issues. When I got my S-30, it came with an extra tube. Sure enough, one of the Sovtek's was questionable and one channel wouldn't bias with it. I picked up a replacement set of Svetlanas along the line and they were all perfect and might sound a tiny, tiny bit better. Construction wise, they do look the same, right down to a sticker that I can't read without my glasses on the top.
