Purchased these to replace the shipped 845 tubes in my Line Magnetic LM-518ia. Apparently the standard tubes are relabelled PSVane HiFi series. It would have been nice to try the PSVane WE replicas, but they were considerably more expensive than the Shuguangs and also were slightly taller and so wouldn't have fitted with the tube cage.
These are definitely an upgrade in every way compared to the originals. Are they better than the PSVane WE or even T2? I can't say, having never heard them.
The only downside was these tubes are not even close to matched, even with my biased turned completely down on one channel, it is still slightly above the recommended 70ma, while the other tube sits at 60ma, so these lose 1 star. Other than that, I am extremely pleased with the sound.
Bought these tubes as replacement for the definately not bad Shuguang 845B that were in my NAF 845 SE special edition when I bought it. Man what a difference. I expected an upgrade but as there is hardly anything to find about these tubes on the net it was a gamble. I would advise anyone looking for a major upgrade of his current tubes for a very reasonable price to give these tubes a try. Especially for about half the price of the Psvane equivalent.
