    The JJ E34L are pretty much exactly what it says on the tin, Slightly higher bias point for a little more clean headroom before the drive signal crashes into the 0 bias point. Nice in hifi amps, the old ST70 seems to like them. Not bad for guys running tons of gain and trying to keep the power amp tight.
