Is the Tungsram E88CC. The ones that I am familiar with are the red labeled variety. Like TubeMonger's photo. Very clean sound. Not overly bitter sounding mids, like some other 6992 type tubes.
I had a good amount of those when I had stuff that used 6922 types. I actually felt that the JJ's came very close to em in sound believe it or not.
If the tubes fail, due to designer abuse, their sonics are irrelevant. I have nothing but disdain for the bleat "It sounds better that way". Unreliable equipment doesn't sound, at all. :> ((
Sticking to the Russian 6H23П-EB is safe . If clear evidence of proper engineering comes to the fore, the OP can entertain the purchase of costly 6922 variants. The "reissue" GL is expensive and premium OS tubes are ridiculously expensive.
