Treasure is still a treasure 7 years after launched originally in Dec 2008. This is another addition to the series and quality carefully selected by Grant Fidelity for worldwide audiophiles and music lovers. Reviewer Mark Wheeler from TNT-Audio said:
“I have not heard a better current production 6SL7 from any manufacturer. NOS samples are too inconsistent to recommend. The 6SL7 double triode has always been one of the best choices for the tiny signals handled by phono-preamplifiers, typically achieving a low-noise transparency with a lush mid-band perfect for handling the human voice. The extra bass extension and bass definition of the Shuguang Treasure Series GF select (what a mouthful) would be enough to justify just over 200 bucks a pair in any phono-preamplifier over a grand. These 6SL7 samples add sharper transient-snap and timing too. The extra transparency and linearity that offers the greater scale and dynamics ices the cake sufficiently to justify two pairs, where possible, in a phono-preamplifier costing over 2000 Dollars or Euros. With valve equipment, the first tuning priority must be vibration isolation and the second tuning priority must be valve choice. With the tiny signals from phono cartridges, avoiding hum is an additional challenge, through careful earthing (grounding) arrangements and careful cable dressing. In a phono or microphone preamplifier, the 6SL7 is a great choice of amplifying device and the Shuguang Treasure 6SL7 may be the best of modern production.” Read full review here.
Grant Fidelity has just sourced this new KT120-Z to the Treasure “black bottle” series with our Select quality grade, in response to the many requests from worldwide audiophile and music lovers.
With more and more KT120 based amplifiers available on the market, many audiophiles and music lovers are looking for an alternative to TungSol KT120 (which was the only KT120 available before Treasure KT120-Z) – to get a warmer, richer and lush sound.
Reviewer said: “Hi Rachel,
The KT-120s are broken-in now. The bass is more than there. Everything sounds excellent. I have to finish a Synergistic Research review and then I’ll get on this one. I have no desire to reinstall the Ayon Audio KT-88s if that tells you anything. It will be a five star review. Thanks, Mike Girardi

Read the review by Dagogo.com reviewer Kevin Fiske – he compared the Psvane WE300B replica to the original WE300B ’78, ’88 and the re-issue ’98′:
On Sovtek 300B – “‘powerful bass, dry midrange, restricted top end – rather grey and dead sounding.’
On Psvane WE300B 1:1 replica: “We then changed to the Psvane WE Replicas, played the same tracks and were rewarded by a much more enhanced sense of dynamic flow, of micro dynamics and openness. My notes say: Voices comparatively glowing’, strings have a better sense of wood and gut.’ It was clear to all of us that the Psvanes were in a different league to the Sovteks.”
On Western Electric 300B ’98 re-issue: “the 98s sounded very different to the Psvane 300B replicas. The WEs struck all of us as being smoother and less granular, with a richer tonality in the midband but with less bite to the leading edge of notes, and less top end, too, than the Psvanes.”
On Western Electric 300B ’88: “I felt they were different to the ‘98s, but the differences were less so than those between the 98s and the Psvanes. I heard a slightly richer and more fleshed out midband than delivered by the ‘98s, but voices were smaller, as if the sonic picture had been through a too-hot wash cycle. They were very smooth and a bit recessed.” Read more...
Feedback received via email from Darren in Australia:
I just wanted to let you know the (KT88-Z, CV181-Z and 6SL7-Z) arrived yesterday.
I fitted the CV181-Z and 6SL7-Z first and listened to a significantly improved openness …
I should have done more listening to get a better appreciation of the difference, but could not wait to add in the KT88 treasures
Again the sound was improved – less bass slam – tighter
I look forward to a longer burn in period to get the full appreciation, but first impression is that they are very nice.”
We have just expanded the Treasure line to include 6SL7. This is a model frequently used in many preamps and power amps. It can replace Chinese 6N9P and are more warm / musical sounding by Russian 6SL7 to many Asian music lovers. Not it’s time for your ear to judge…To find out more details and place an order, please click here.
The 2nd addition is a special edition globe shaped 6SN7 SE designed and produced by the Treasure team distributed exclusively by Grant Fidelity. Could this be the BEST current 6SN7 on the market as intended by the design team? We wait for worldwide audiophile to provide us feedback…With Grant Fidelity’s ultra tight selection criteria, this model is only available in very limited quantity.

“We just finished a first listening test and here are some impressions:
WE274B – very impressive rectifier tube; by far the best we tried until now; a real good copy of the original WE tube!
WE205D – My friend Cees owns a nice collection of WE 205 vintage tubes; the oldest is from 1925 and further he owns the 1938 and 1947 versions; we compared them with your replica; to our impression the 1925 version was the best followed by your version.
WR2A3 – the real original WE sound; we are very much impressed by this tube.”
As I promised you; here is a short review about the 101-D tube; my friend Cees wrote it; Read more...
Feedback received via email from Alberta W.:
“I’d like to say that, it is by far the best sounding KT88s I’ve heard to date. I’ve tried Gold Lions and Penta KT88s but the Psvane Treasures leave them in the dust. Everything across the entire frequency range sounds better and more realistic. Clarity is also improved. Thank you!
Review from Dawid from Poland in related to Lukasz Fikus devices:
“I hope that I was able to put it bluntly enough what Psvane WE101D-L are and why they outperformed their competition. It is what it is, at least for now. I’ve compared four sets of tubes for many days, each bulb had many hours of usage, so mechanical factors have no meaning here. Each was burned in long enough. Sure, it can always be said that you match tubes to your rig; speakers, amplifier and so on. Well, I’ve used the best stereo power amplifier I had, and three very different speakers. On top of that there was very various music list. But even despite that, final outcome of my small valve battle was exceptionally unequivocal. There’s nothing more to add here. I can only recommend WE101D-L to every DHT based source from Łukasz Fikus. That particular set of bulbs will make you go bonkers, really. Who has heard them, knows. Those are THE ones. Read more...
Feedback received from Todd via email:
Rachel, I have had a couple of weeks to play with the Psvane 12AX7 Tubes. Very good! I own 10-12 sets of very good NOS 12AX7 tubes, some costing as much as $200 each. It is too early to say for certain, but at this point I feel like the Psvane is on par with the best. I have a lot of friends who are as nutty about tubes as me, and it is looking like I will be recommending Psvane from Grant Fidelity….
They are very quiet as well, which is a big deal since these are being used in a phono stage. The only ax7 tubes that I own that are quieter are Telefunken tubes selected for use in medical equipment. - Todd”
