I would start with a 5U4GB. . . that is I believe the "stock" tube.

Thank you Lon!  

Here is another question.  I brought a pair of Philips 7DJ8 the other day for my upcoming SE34I.3.  I put the 7DJ8 in my SE84C and tested it out and the 7DJ8 did not sound bad at all.  Does anyone have experience with 7DJ8s with any of the Decware amps?  People mostly said that 7DJ8s are drop in replacement for 6DJ8 only with higher filament voltage.  However, I also noticed that someones are saying about cathode poisoning on the 7DJ8s if they are being operated below spec filament voltage (7V).  Does anyone have long term experience with 7DJ8s being operated as 6DJ8s?  Do 7DJ8s end up with shorter life or they are about the same as 6DJ8s?  Thanks.

I know that will, Greg and others have been using the 7DJ8 in their Torii Mk IIIs with good effect. I've stayed away because I'm enamored with the 6N1P tube in my amps, and just use those now, never was too impressed with the 6DJ8, so didn't move to that 7DJ8 as a possibility. There have been no reports of the 7DJ8 being harmful to the amps.

I've been using PCC88s / 7DJ8s (Telefunkens, Valvos, Siemens, Philips, Lorenz, Mullard Blackburn) as replacement for 6N1Ps in my Decware CSP2+ without any problems whatsoever.

In fact, the "best" tube so far which I have tried is the Lorenz PCC88. It has the same amount of sonic clarity and resolution as the famed Siemens CCa Grey plates in my possession.
In fact, the Lorenz PCC88 has a slight edge over the Siemens CCa because it has an even more "3D" like soundstage and better retrieval of inner details.
In other audio forums with other equipment e.g. the Schiit Lyr, you can find similar opinions whereby the Lorenz PCC88 is actually preferred over Siemens CCa.
