Output tubes used



		6CA7	EH, transistor sound, compared with the others

			SIEMENS, good in everything, except looks and price

		KT77 	JJ, nice midrange and body, very unstable

		KT66 	SHUGHUANG, sound more in your face, a bit thin,
			like Yamaha piano

			GOLD LION reissue, more natural timbre, more body, 
			deeper stage, more 3D, Steinway
