Had any one used JJ 6SN7 or 6SL7 tubes in any HiFi amps. The reason I am asking is I am out of all my new old stock 6SN7 tubes made in Clearfield Pa by Sylvainna. I have never used any Russian 6SN7 as most of them have hum. But the 6SL7 work fine. I have an order for some new amps and was wandering about the JJ tubes.

I have the 6SN7. They're quiet, a little boring and 50/50 will have h-k failure when used SRPP with more than 150V across each tube.
(still like the Reflektor "OTK" 6H8C better)

No problem with them run non-totem and in a place "sonics" matter less, like the PI.
