The only difference I could hear (albeit on my computer speakers) were that the 6CA7's were a bit more "juicy." As long as they were reliable, I would play any of the new ones.
Ya, man. I absolutely agree. They remind me of why I love original PAFs. Everything all at once. Big and fat and rich, with breathy clarity at the same time. That nearly impossible combination that so much old gear has and so much new gear doesn't.I liked the very first one a LOT for the mid gain examples. The original Mullard. Chime and bite.
that make a lot of sense. Sound is probably more complex than color.@eslover - some stuff, sure. Like you could roll the bass off on the (original) Mullards to give them less low end similar to the Siemens. ...but the individual dynamics that each type has in various frequencies and the particular harmonics - that'd be impossible. For example, you can't take something so compressed in some frequencies as the SEDs and undo that compression, even with some fancy multi band expander.
