The Genalex Gold Lion E88CC/6922 is a premium grade selected small signal twin-triode that is a suitable replacement for all 6DJ8, ECC88, 6922, E88CC, and 7308 types. This tube features gold plated pins and is manufactured to extremely tight specifications, making it the highest quality current production E88CC/6922 available.
A very detailed sounding 6922.... almost too detailed, bordering on bright.Introduced unacceptable hum into 2 different preamps. Could be just the individual tube I got stuck with. I use Gold Lion KT88s in my power amps, and they are awesome.

Warm sound, tube failure...
Compared to Amperex 6922, sounds warmer but less detailed... kept them on for a year when left channel started getting noisy due to faulty tube... 4-star for sound, 2-star for tube quality hence the 3-star rating

Tube got noisy in just three weeks
I replaced my 18-year-old 6922 in my preamp with this Genalex 6922. It worked well and sounded good, but in just three weeks, one channel (which uses half of the tube) got noisy. I put the old tube back in, and the noise was gone. I must say I'm disappointed.

Use this in a Rode NTK
I switch this tube off with a 1960's British Mullard. It is quieter than the Mullard and has an equally good sound in the mic. New Sensor is building great Tubes in Saratov. I also have Mullards and Tung-sol's they have built. Good stuff!
