A well made affordable 300b !
I'm running this tube since a while now, basically as my all day working tube. I do own a pair KR Audio 300b as well. The Genalex Gold Lion 300b doesn't have the same sheer rock solid sovereignty like the KR. She sounds a little more flourish less sober and less detailed compared to the KR but offers a very wide soundstage nonetheless and a very good tonality over the complete spectrum and is or course detailed. Bass is a bit less dry compared to the KR . But don't forget the KR is a 400€ tube and the Genalex a 150€ tube. I've heard a few others in the Genalex price league and this Russian tube clearly beats JJ and EH for example with ease even if Eh comes effectively from the same house! So those of you searching for an affordable all day tube should give this Genalex a shot, In this relatively unequal fight, KR vs. Genalex she has pulled out of the affair very well without major injuries which is why she get my recommendation IMO one of the best if not the best 300b in this price class!
