Mario,

out of interest, do you know how many hours were on each of the tube types.  I seem to recall reading that the treasures needed a lot of time on them.

Thanks Mario,

I assumed that was the case.  Interesting to read, after some of the buzz elsewhere.

Good price I think

USD 110, good price indeed. I found USD 150 for grade B and USD 200 for grade A here http://www.grantfidelity.com/site/TJ_Full_music_6SN7

Which one to get?  ???
Not all that matters can be measured, not all that can be measured matters.

Dont have any fancy tube testing machine, but i got some 'grade C' & grade 'B' Sophia 6sn7's, (TJ equivalents) been using them for nearly 9mths now, cant sonically tell the difference.  Personally, i think its a marketing ploy to 'differentiate' the seller to market competition.

I agree. Smells like marketing, there may be small differences in measurement,  Grade, A, B, C. But i don't think you will hear any differences.

Good to see that they are doing the job in your system Gordon.

They appear to be the pick of the current production 6SN7's.

Nice to hear about the new Sino 6SL7s. The grading system is based on the results of a curve tracer the tubes are tested on at the factory and as far as Grant goes, and maybe others, they pay more and also give a longer warranty on the tubes. I have a pair of the Shuguang Treasure 300Bs that are in the 85% range(from Grant). I got them from a friend who has been trying to get them back, but they are better that the Full Musics I had been using and I am keeping them.
The best 6SL7s I have tried so far are RCA VT-229s which are around the same price as the new ones out of China. Nice to get an opinion about the FM vs the Shaggies.
