in most usage where the dissipation is low 6CG7s should sound just like a 6SN7

My old stock AWV and AWA examples have the same elements as their mfr's same year 6SN7s.

The only audio role I would use any 12AU7 (even RCA clear tops) is in follower mode when they are blameless.

That is I would never use any 12AU7 for gain.

It's not really an audio tube anyway, but an RF tube.

The preponderance of 12AU7 rolling posts on the web reflects its non-stellar sound which they all have. ;-)! and ;-).
