EL 34 for Marantz 8B

Hello, I need a quad of tubes for my 8B. In the 90s I lived near Bob Hovland and he selected some Svetlanas (not the winged C, but with the big S symbol). He said it was his favorite at the time.

I would be happy to get a quad of the same tubes. They sound good. But I'm also interested if there is any new tube out that might be better.

My sonic priority is transparency, as in very fine resolution of detail, from the woody string vibrations on a double bass, to the exquisite shimmer of cymbals. Transparency and clarity.

Also, is it necessary to get the matching RAM tubes does, or is Antique Electronic Supply, Tube Works, etc just as good?

Thanks a lot.
