    produce.Is that true?

    Hi Kost,

    The JJ and the Gold Lion KT77's are both very good tubes to use in any ST-70. The JJ's are a far better value at $80 - $90 for a matched quad. The Gold Lion KT77's are double the price of the JJ's. The KT77's seem to have a little better bass than EL34's.

    JJ did have a problem a couple of years ago with undersized pins on their KT77's but I have been told that this problem has been taken care of.
