Could someone tell me the difference in the different Tungsram ECC83 12AX7 tubes. I see there are a number of different years of manufacture and difference in price, but how do they differ in tone?

I really liked my older Tungsram's. I picked up some 80's and I wasn't nearly as impressed. However, I've heard you should give 'em 40 hours before passing judgement. I had enough other favorites that I never gave them a chance to break in....YMMV.
