Well, I've been rolling between the 1978 Voskhod 6N23P tubes and Matsu****a 6922 Mullard tubes the past few days. At least from my inexperienced standpoint, listening with a pair of AKG K702s, what I *think* I hear is that the Voskhod tubes seem a bit more forward and crisper than do the Matsu****a tubes. I certainly like the sound of both, but the Matsu****a tubes come across as slightly more laid back in comparison. Especially with acoustic tracks that have a lot of guitar, the Voskhods seem detailed -- I can really hear the movement of fingers across the strings, whereas with the Matsu****a tubes I don't hear such string details as much. From others' experiences, does this sound about right for what I'm experiencing with these particular tubes? This will help me calibrate my expectations. I'm still waiting on a couple pairs of Amperex tubes (mentioned previously in this thread), but at this point the Voskhod tubes are winning.
