RE: Which NOS EL84 for audio amplifier?

In EL84 I've found 60's Mullard & Amperex (Philips Holland) to be a huge upgrade over the American tubes I've listened to, also like both of those more than the T-funken. A ton more air and bigger soundstage than the contemporary RCA's. Very triode like.
I'd look for strong testing used pairs/quads of those.
