I may have mentioned I found a NOS pair of these in my 6SN7 stash, with the gray smoked glass. They tested as new on my Hickok, whereas only one of my remaining KenRads had not previously seen duty in the MP1, which means I took them out of the MP1 at some time in the past, for some reason, even though they test well. Anyway, I decided to try the RCAs last night. I am very very pleased, especially since these may have been sitting on a shelf for the past 60 or more years. They sound lovely right from the get-go. Bass and midrange to die for. And lack of microphony makes them a bit better than the microphonic KenRads I just removed, which could get shrill on high frequencies. From memory, these sound better than red-base RCA 5692s, of which I have many. I am happy.
