The primary source of heat in tubes is from the heater. Additional heat from actual use is low by comparison. Small signal tubes, such as those in the Valhalla 2, should easily last 5000hr and more. Many radios from the 1930s are still working fine with their original small signal tubes in place. Use whatever sounds best to your ears. Replacement tubes from Schiit are quite inexpensive.
Thanks... Yeah, I saw those specs... I guess I'll continue using them with high gain and continue to enjoy "life" without worrying too much about things that might not the relevant....

Have a great weekend!

Will post my thoughts once I roll some GL 6922s into the Valhalla 2. Likely won't be until June, due to travel. Serge reports good things from them in his Valhalla 2.

JJ's E88CC's are quite affordable... and I'm quite happy with their performance... I'll love to try Gold Lions at one point though...

tricolor - check with Bob (member Vintage Tube) for those GLs. He has attractive pricing and great service.
