Ratings & Reviews
Clear Winner of my comparison review
by Noam Bronstein
I recently reviewed the whole fleet of 300B tubes. The Genalex Gold Lion PX300B won - it ranked #1 in 7 out of my 8 music tests, using two single-ended amps. This tube is detailed, musical and just consistently a joy to listen to. It basically does everything "right". For my full review see my website, www.wallofsound.ca

I was waiting for Noam to finish that review of 300B tubes. I wanted something really good that cost less than the other premium tubes out there. (Not that these are cheap, but compared to some of those other really high priced ones!!)
I was using Electro Harmonix and JJ 300Bs in my two amps. I knew the JJs were the better of those two. When I plugged in those Gold Lions and they warmed-up....it was a No Brainer; these are really good tubes. They do everything beautifully. I can't imagine that those other high priced tubes will do much, if any, better. The Law of Diminishing Returns starts after the Gold Lions.
Great performance !
I picked them up based on existing reviews, without knowing anything about Gold Lion version of 300B. When amp was ready and up for party, I was amazed about power over clarity, nice frequency coverage and sound richness. I totally recommend this tube.
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!
Great product !

Have used them in a DIY amplifier in a combination with top preamp tubes (E88CC Telefunken) and amorphous audio transformers. Delivers an outstanding detailed sound, very good coverage on high and low frequencies. It is a very good one !
