Anyone try these in the MT?  They are "virtually the same specs as the E180CC " according to Jessie Brent.

I thought about it but never did. Now I've sold my Mini.

LOL

I am assuming they will work.  They have a good rep for being well built and a nice sound

I believe I did try some 7062 tubes in mine and they sounded fine. A lot more livelier than the standard 12AU7 in that circuit. The 6414 definitely have a following and are reputed to sound real good.

Listening to them now

seem to have a bit more punch and separation in sound than the
philips E180CC

Go for E80CC although those E180CC can be great tubes. Steve approved the E80CC higher heater current, and they are a more linear tube than 12AU7. 12AT7 types tend to be a bit non-linear IIRC. Not the best tube...
