I had to stop buying XF1s probably at least 10 years ago and XF2s a few years after that, when they got absurd but I still have yet to find anything that can hold a candle to them in most Marshalls. After those, I was kinda ok with the NOS SEDs but still felt they were not as full and nice as the Mullards in the low end and low mids. I still run vintage preamp tubes but it's hard to justify vintage power tubes to myself, these days.
I doubt I'll ever pay for NOS EL34's. Even way back when I went Tesla over NOS Mullard, but that was mostly due to lack of funds.
