Opinions: Vintage Tung-Sol 12AX7 Made in USA?

Has anyone directly compared Vintage Tung-Sol 12AX7 Made in USA, to the new production Tung-Sol 12AX7? Any major sonic differences?

The way I understand it, the vintage Tung-Sol 12AX7 Made in USA is one of the best US 12AX7 ever made, very dynamic and musical with superb tonal balance, better overall than RCA. Does this still hold true with most of you guys?

I'm thinking of replacing my 12AX7 stock tubes in my AESTHETIX Calypso preamp with vintage Tung-Sol 12AX7s Made in USA.

Opinions anyone?
