Been talking to ol' Uncle Ned. He doesn't particularly care for them, but I have them, use them and kind of like them. Different strokes fer different folks. 6550's are good bassy tubes, they just don't have the headroom of the KT88's. Chinese KT88's (at least the ones I have) are real KT88's. I think you are referring to the Chinese KT100, which is just a KT88 that has higher performance ratings. The Chinese did that in an attempt to one up the numbering of the KT90 and make it appear to be a higher powered tube, when in fact it is just a KT88. Anybody out there got a sextet of Philips 6550's they could get rid of?
