Big differences in terms of sound quality between the stock tubes and the Gold Lyon´s ?

Thank you.

Chema.......When the McIntosh C2300 was in production the factory was using tubes made in China. I think they were made by Shuguang. I don't know exactly when McIntosh made the decision to begin using JJ Tubes as their branded tubes, but as I have been told, JJ Tubes are what McIntosh presently uses. I pulled the Made In China tubes out of my C2300 years ago and now use Gold Lion 12AX7 and Telefunken ECC83/12AX7 tubes exclusively. Yes, there is a considerable improvement using Gold Lion tubes. I have no problem recommending them.
