I don't listen only to classical but I think I prefer my Stratus to stay on the neutral/transparent side more than on the lush/warm side. From what I read and heard , the Stratus is already on the warm side I think I don't want to add even more warmth. 

 

Your post helped me to do my choice  and I'll buy a full set of EML for my Stratus and I'll see if that's ok for me and compare to my NOS visseaux/miniwatt 2A3.  if none of these 2A3 do the trick then I'll try the Shuguang 2A3CT. 

The Stratus is quite neutral for an SET amp.  Changing tubes, headphones, coupling caps will alter this in a direction you like (or dislike). I switched coupling caps to get the sound I wanted.

Bought a pair of Psvane WE-275 last week and loved them very much! They are quieter than my Shuguang Natural sound, but very musical and 3-dimensional. Work wonderfully well with HD 800, as they sound more detailed, transparent and refined than ever. Into my 50th hour with the tubes, hope they will stay problem free, keeping my fingers crossed.

I didn't know the 275s were a compatible substitute. Good luck. I have had problems with Psvane 2A3s but never tried any other tube of theirs.

Very interesting, I was lurking around those tubes indeed. Keep us informed please ;)

Yes, will continue to monitor the Psvane tubes and hope they will last.
