Take on VT-25 / 801 / VT-62 / 10 Tubes?

I know this question sounds absurd but I don't have the coin to try all the 10 variants with a hole in my wallet.

So, I wanted to see what is the best sounding of the bunch in the 10 Variants?

I know there is 801 and 801A aka VT-62, 10 and 10Y aka VT-25 and VT-25A. And then, they are made by RCA, Hytron, Sylvania, WE. And then, there are short plate and long plate versions?

So, what's a good bet on just buying a couple of pairs of the preamp and drive use?

Thanks for your wisdom!
