    Howdy, I've got my choice of RCA, Sylvania, Admiral or Raytheon NOS 6AN8A tubes. Does anyone have any idea which to chose?

    There isn't much of a difference between the tubes with the exception of the Admiral tube which was produced by one of the major tube manufacturers. My preference is RCA but that is because I have a bunch of them.

    Why not try each one for about 30 min with familiar music and determine which one YOU prefer?

    I've not listened to a 6an8a but I've listened to plenty of 6gh8a's from rca, Sylvania, and raytheon and I liked rca the best.
