"I've never heard the Reflektor version of these tubes as they're waaay out of my price range and a lot of them are fakes."
All those tubes are made by the former Reflector factory, currently owned by The New Sensor, there is no other source.
I presume you mean the NOS tubes, made there prior to their discontinuation in 1992. Yes, those are superior in all respects.
Yep, that would be them. $500 to $600 a pair for them is ridiculous money not knowing if they're genuine.
...and for genuine ones.
Victor, I've searched and haven't seen any for less. I'm not at all unhappy with the Sovteks that I have in the player at present. I can't afford to risk buying tubes out of Eastern Europe and hope I'm getting what I paid for. If there's another source I haven't found it. I'd love to have a quad of them for a sane price but, so far, no joy.
...who bought them for about $200, I think that is the lowest you can find today.
You are right, though, the current production tubes are not too bad, but we still reject a noticeable number.
