RE: These are what I like and if you have bias adjustments on your amp

Posted by ahendler on June 15, 2012 at 21:27:00:

The new Gold Lion kt77's are the real deal. Just put them in my VTL ST85 and they do everything you would want. I tried the JJ kt77's and I could just get them to reach required bias with my amp. They are somewhat aggressive sounding and not as musical as all the other tubes I have tried. In order of preference they are:
Gold Lion KT77
Shanguang Treasure 6CA7
Electro Harmonex EL-34
I do want to point out that all of these tubes sound good but the Gold Lions and the Treasures are exceptional
