RE: What about the Type 3?

Okay, I better understand what you're trying to do. The Siemens 6922 and CCa from the 60's are excellent tubes. They tick all the audiophile approved boxes of resolution, an even frequency response and throw a really good soundstage.

I have a mixed set of 4 Siemens 6922 CCa and a pair of Siemens 6922s in my preamp currently and they are really excellent. Everyone's taste is different, however, and I always ultimately find them a little soul-less, for lack of a better way of putting it. But that's just to me, naturally.

My sonic biases always seem to lead me back to Lorenz, Amperex and Telefunken.

Hope you find the right ones for you.
