Add me to the CV181T-II list. One of only a few new production tubes that I like very much. Nice construction quality too.I like the UKs as well, but (like a woodworking cable builder here), I REALLY like the CV181T - II. And they also make the 6SN7SE (tennis ball) and the 6SN7 HIFI versions too. Nothing wrong with any of them, frankly.
Edit: aaaaaaannddd there’s another. Amplified parts has a PSvane 6SN7GT “classic line” tube for $25 and change. Who knew?
Maybe a touch of overkill in the Vali 2, as if 1) there is such a thing, and 2) I would care , but also really nice in the Lyr 3 and Incubus..
