    Not sure how many hours. Ordered a set of Shuguang treasures. We will see how they work. 😃

    Ignore this sort of entry. The reissues were Fantastic! tubes and would be more than likely all listeners' favourites out of the list of tubes listed on this post by Bozzo. Truly great tubes albeit a fizzled effort to restock the world due to dwindling WE 300B's, as I guess they closed again. They probably had to close again and the world's lost WE forever now as they fought against this ridiculous throw away remark that seems to have been sucked up by all the trilobites and couldn't sell enough against this (ridiculous) ill tide. "Not as good as ... ". Snore. Ignore this type of rant, it's commonly repeated 'round the traps. And I mean Traps.

    The reissues I have found now to be virtually non-existent. If you spot a pair or quad or your requirements jump at those fools and they will melt your heart.

    "Not as good as .." meandering foolish sheep talk. Suckers.

    Not sure why you have to be aggressive and call this a rant. The amp designer whom I demoed WE 300b reissues vs AVVT with, another local audio buddy, and another dealer (who does not deal in any of these tubes) have the same view.

    I would also suggest reading this detailed 300b review with Kevin Fiske and Peter Qvortrup http://www.dagogo.com/psvane-we-11-replica-300b-review where similarly, they agreed that one has to go back to the 70s to get the WE magic.

    It's ok if you disagree, but I can see why you call yourself sickophant

    I hope WE reissues weren't completely dismissed outhand. Maybe due to suggestions? Maybe a quick search was made for sellers? A mild interest otherwise? Otherwise this might read as "bought chinese tubes because the WE reissues are not as good as WE 70's and unders".

    There's some sort of mass extinction logic for ya. Snore.

    Your trump bloke's in for a ride getting american manufacture back on track and taking something back from china. When a u.s. company starts up again they will never manage to be better than their own 70's and under efforts so it will just go back to china for manufacture. And look, your public will be right behind those companies and will publically say so, so there. Aka, look above.

    It'd be nice(r) to know I might be sticking up for an active company. Shame they've gone again. Reprehensible public mewling, automated belief mindlessly flowing and repeated through daft fingers, some automatic unconsciousness, some dog's bone(r) stuck up the collective r's. Thank god we have shugangs.

    The WE Re-issue 300B's from the mid 2000's are Outstanding audio tubes!

    SuperTNT sapphire crystal 300BYxII or 300BYzII is a good choice.

    I never had good luck with Sophia's,but that was several years ago. Renaissance amps run 300B's at the maximum design voltage. I always ran cooling fans with mine...lot's of heat.

    I have run Shuguang black treasure tubes, JJ 300Bs, and the VAC tubes. The ones that VAC supplies are the best so far. On a related note, I'm selling my 30/70 amps and sticking with the 70/70. Anyone interested? haha

    Some users said that SuperTNT 300BYxII sound performance is a grade with Takatsuki 300B
