The EAT KT88S are Quite Possibly the Finest Tubes Ever Made
Built to the highest degree of perfection, the EAT KT88s are uncompromisingly excellent in every aspect of vacuum tube performance. Measured and audible results confirm these are outstanding tubes, revealing life, breath and soul previously unheard of from a KT88.
The EAT KT88s despite their outrageous price are so exceptional that even the usually reticent Ken Kessler had this to say.
"The EATs are sensational. Even though the measurements indicate no gain in power, the sound is more robust, with convincing weight and palpable mass, but the real gains were in the midband, the EATs increased intimacy strengthening the sensation of the singer being in the room. The extra clarity and openness make it much easier to focus on detail typically masked or overwhelmed by louder sounds. Then, there's the attack & decay capabilities of the EATs, they're quick, almost ridiculously so. Put on a disc by any virtuoso known for rapid plucking or fingering, no muddle, no delays, no upsetting the timing. What we have here, my friends, is the valve amp equivalent of Viagra."

Roy Gregory loved EAT KT88s so much he awarded them HiFi+'s coveted Product of the Year!
"Sonically the results are absolutely superb, trouncing generally available examples and bettering even NOS tubes. Romantic they aren't, but if you want power, transparency, grip, focus, detail and definition, all woven into a singularly convincing whole, then look no further."
– Roy Gregory, HiFi+
