I really like the RFT EZ80's for what I listen for thru Beyerdynamic re-cabled T1's.

But they tend a little toward the forward, bright side.  You might see if you can find

any Great Britain made Brimar EZ80's.  More instrument timbre to me and a bit darker than

the RFT's but without losing detail.  Hard to  find but a great tube for me.

I haven't run the 7236's in mine...always the 5998's.  One of the 6AS7A's will take the edge off

the treble for you I would think...but at the price of maybe getting some of that muffled sound back.

Good luck.

I'm using HD800. Anybody else?

I use HD-800s. I found a couple solutions to the 7-10 KHz spike: Philips Miniwatt EZ81s definitely help with sibilance, but retain extended highs; the second isn't a tube, but an IC: the Silnote Morpheus Reference II. The EZ81s sell for $50 each at Upscale Audio, the ICs for $170 on Audiogon. The Morpheus cables are well balanced and have a truly gorgeous midrange, as well as extended highs. You'll get all of the detail, but none of the treble harshness.

Forgot to say that Tung Sol 7236s also help a bit.

+1 on the Morpheus Reference II.  I got one on Chesterfield's recommendation and wouldn't be without it now.  Great upgrade to my ears and did help with the sibilance with my T1's.
