RE: French 12AX7 Sonic Signatures

French tubes have a very unique sound signature and invoke love\hate relationship. Mazda & Cifte are the same tubes - Cifte was produced by Mazda for military (have both of them - they sound the same). French tubes in general have very transparent sound in incredible sparkle on the top - it's like a good champagne (great depth, fantastic sparkle and superb liveliness) - I found them to be incredible in live show type presentation, they communicate the atmosphere of the show very well. Haven't tried RTC, so can't comment.
