Lew, have you given the Tung-Sol roundplates a serious evaluation?

In my journey thru 'N7s decades ago, my first good-sounding find was the RCA, but that was quickly replaced by the KR VT-231/6SN7; to me the KRs were a little warmer balanced (a positive) and lacked nothing anywhere else. But then I found the TSRPs and discovered an even-more-attractive tonal balance and overall excellence. I had over two dozen years ago but then I had nothing to use them in and sold some; I was down to 15 until I bought the quad pictured below. But they too can be microfonic.

I'm retrieving a pair of Atma-Sphere M-60 monoamps today and plan to use probably two TSRPs in each amp.
