Yes, a nice tube. In my amps and preamps these have a nice sense of space and depth, a bit bass light in comparison with some other 6922 types but not criminally so.

Totally agree with Lon's take on this tube. Just a little bit bass shy, seems a touch more open than some others.

I have found the 7DJ8 to be an excellent alternative.  I have a Valvo/Hamburg made 7DJ8 as the driver tube in my CSP3.  Depending on the choice of output tubes and rectifier I’ll use either the Valvo/Hamburg D getter or Halo getter in the driver stage.  The D getters have more mid prescence.

The Valvo/Hamburg are a little more extended on the top end and I don’t find them to be bass shy.  Lots of detail, space and depth as described.  I have used various Amperex (very nice tubes) and found these to have a little more mid “warmth” than the Valvo 7DJ8.

Thanks.
I was thinking of trying these but A little bass shy worries me though.

Hey Sonic,  I have that tube and it is very, very nice! But, I'd have to say I enjoy amperex 6922 (white label Jan or PQ) types best. I will still roll the philips into the superzen amp from time to time.

I decided to give some of these a try.

I put a quad of these in my Phono stage and I like them very much.
