Good dual triode power tubes
Hi Ampagers  
I'm thinking of building a small amp that uses a dual triode tube as a Class AB P-P output stage. At the moment I'm thinking of what kind of tube to use:

Two 12AU7s  
Two 12AT7s  
An ECC99 from JJ Electronic (sort of like a stretched version of the 12AU7)
