Hmmm... I didn't bother with the GN8S's on my Freya as I "assumed" that Schiit offered the Tung Sols and an "upgrade" because they sounded better? Anyway, it took them (Tung Sol 6N7's) a LONG time to break in (burn in) but they are sounding nice now. I may have to try those coin base Sylvania 6N7's! Thanks for the info.

There are some reports that the coin-base 6SN7 are highly microphonic. But there are several stories out there about tubes which don't hold up to close scrutiny. For example, many people hold the red base 5692 up as a premium 6SN7 and outrageous prices are paid for them. However for audio applications, they are a very mediocre tube. Likewise people pay a premium to get the VT-231 "military" version of a 6SN7. There is nothing different about a VT-231, manufacturers simply relabeled them so as to be compatible with military inventory standards.

As always, my ying may be your yang. I've never found the high$$ tubes to be worth the money (some of the Tels, Bugle Boys, etc.). Have been able to find very nice sounding tubes at reasonable cost. To my ears, the GL labeled modern tubes sound good. Too bad they don't offer a 6SN7.
