I use those as the driver tubes in my Cary SLP-05.

I agree with everything you said EXCEPT that I actually try to FIND amps that use the 6SN7, precisely BECAUSE I have a large stash of them already and I want to use them
With EIGHT (!) 6SN7's in that Cary preamp, yeah, you need that large stash
BTW, I'm not buying any more equipment with 6SN7's because I'm holding on to my 6SN7's as my own 401K when I retire, baby!
I had a Cary SLP 05 preamp, with 8 Sylvania 6SN7 GTB with the green writing. I kept them thinking I would use them in my SP. amp. But I like the 2C51/5670 with the tube adapters, there a little more lively, little bigger sound stage and the bass is a little tighter and when needed to be,, there a little more inpact-full.(I don't think that's a word).
I found this thread by using the search button and typing in "Shuguang Treasure CV181-Z" This really is not the end all in 6SN7 tubes?? I read a couple of reviews last night and was going to order a set but now I am not sure.
I will post a link to the review if I find it later..
EDIT...New CV181 for old [English]
I don't know where you guys shop,, but the tubes below shipped to me from Drew at Moon audio (matched set) $500.00
