My brother gave me a Monoprice hybrid tube/SS hifi amp for Christmas. Cheapo Chinese with tube front end and Class D power I suppose. One tube right out of the box looks smoked so will have to replace that before getting it running. They are using one 6N1 and one 6P15 per side.

Question...I at least have to replace the existing tubes with something better, Russian etc...but can I roll tubes in this thing? Can I just put in an EL34 to replace the 6P15, and put a 12 ax7 or 12au7 or something in for the 6N1?

I don't want to blow it up but have read these are similar and could be interchangeable. Any input or comments? Thanks...
