Greg SimonRe: 7199 versus 6AN8
I've also heard that despite what they said about the 7199 supposed to have been for audio, it only had one thing in it that was different for a 6AN8 besides the pinout, and was just as noisy, and was mainly a ploy by RCA to hoodwink people into buying them for audio. What the truth is I don't know, but the 6AN8 works great in my Sunn stuff, and is quiet, and best of all is cheap for NOS compared to a 7199.
