RCA's "golden age" was more like a "golden minute" - in a scant period, roughly from 1958 to 1963, the beginning of the stereo era - pure vacuum tube amplification helped produce recordings demonstrating unparalleled fidelity and warmth, lifelike presence and midband illumination.
Charles Munch conducts the Boston Symphony Orchestra in an excellent 1958 performance of Claude Debussy's celebrated orchestral work La Mer (The Sea) and Jacques Ibert's Ports Of Call which was inspired by the composer's experiences at Mediterranean ports while serving in the navy during World War I.
