Here are some: EH, JJ 2A3-40, Sovtek, Shuguang, others?
I have owned several, used SE in a WECO 91A clone.
My order of preference:
Sophia Mesh (perf) Plate
Least favorite is the Sovtek and favorite is the JJ...I'm pretty sure it was not obvious in my first attempt
Least favorite is the JJ and favorite is the Sovtek.
Glad you corrected yourself !! Yep, hard to beat the robust build, internal materials, and performance of a JJ 2A3-40 !! I have a dozen now for myself. Selling-off all the others.
I've been away from audio forums for a while. Good to see you're still alive and kicking. Even though we have had some serious 'debate' over many years I still admire your tenacity.
I have no 2A3 amp or application, but thought of Sophia Electric as another and noticed KRs are still around.
I already have a pair of good (not defective) AVVT 2A3 meshplates.
I am looking for an innexpensive new production backup pair.
After a lot of researching on my part I decided the EH Gold 2A3 was the tube. SE triodes are quite variable in how they are judged - it clearly is VERY system and listener dependent. The EH Gold seemed to be the best choice and so far I've been pleased with them. Quality is excellent.
My 2 cents worth...
