  1. I think you should try 6L6's. I just looked at the manual for you amp online. It states you should have matched pairs. 6L6G or GA's have the magic you are looking for but you need to call Quicksilver to see if they will work in you amp. The Tube Store preferred series 6L6GC is a fine tube and are $29.95 each and they will match them. The large bottle TungSol is labeled 6L6G but electrically a 6L6GC. They are more $$ than the preferred series. I would look for a pair of RCA , Hammond etc. 7247's that say made in England. There are relabeled Mullards. Look for seams on the top of the tube. That tells you they are Mullards.
  2. The Dynaco ST70 is a classic tube amp. A perfect match for your Forte III"s. You can get it as a kit or assembled. You can easily sell it if you don't like it but....you won't want to. Bob Latino ST70: http://www.tubes4hifi.com/bob.htm
  3. I've got about 60 hours on the 12AX7 Psvane Treasure Super tubes and it sounds awesome. They've got the 'authentic' NOS sound quality and man are they smooth. I believe the Preferred Series tubes are more rigorously tested and that is a good thing. Shuguang is the largest tube manufacturer in the world they made the original Treasure series. I bought one of the Sophia blue glass 6SN7's and it sounds better, in my rig, than any NOS I have and I've collected a lot of them over the past 20+ years.
  4. New production tubes are getting much better. It is best to get them from a dealer that thoroughly tests them. Not all do. Look at the videos by Upscale Audio on you tube.
