RE: I have several of the NOS/NIB Genelex and GEC KT88s.

Thank you Michael very kind of you to write a lengthy informative response. I was mainly looking to own them for collection purposes but I can see it's probably too hard to achieve as they just aren't available to buy anywhere that I can find. Thanks to the member who turned me on to tube world I didn't have that in my dealer line up. I'm very new to all this and just now looking to buy my first non guitar amp for audio use. But I don't know where to start. I want something for hifi audio use that I can use my plentiful supply of el84 and 12ax7 tubes in my collection so I got a lot of reading on the forum to do to educate myself on that topic.
