Used only in amps, I don't have a preamp that takes 5AR4. The difference between them and Mullard, or Amperex vintage 5AR4 is sufficient that I use the modern tubes solely for testing and bringing up amps that I have worked on. Pretty much use only Mullards for listening but one of my amps has a GE in it at the moment.
I cannot recommend any of them for SQ, but they all work without any issues, if that is the question. Forced to choose it would be the JJ, but without any enthusiasm.
Thanks, I have a GE I got from Jim, which works flawlessly. I also have a Philips, which when I bought it from Charlie at VTV was labeled a JAN 5V4GA. There's a thread here about how they were mislabeled and are actually genuine 5ar4's. Again, works flawlessly.
