I've never matched preamp tubes.  Heard some folks that think the PI tube should be matched...but I don't believe my ear would discern any difference.  JMO...

K last question did you have do the test options ? Doug has The EL84's but they have 3 levels of break up that's new to me .
Early = soft distortion
Middle = meduim  distortion
Late = Hard distotion     

I'll get them matched what did you do for the preamp tubes ?

Lets review...the AC5 is a HG+(V1) and the AC7 is a HG (high grade:  selected for low noise/micro-phonics)V3.  Lots of places to snag tubes at various price points.  I like Ruby because they test the crap out of their tubes and the price is right (comparatively).  TAD & Genelex, Groove Tubes & a host of others do the same thing.  Each guitar/amp setup is different as is each players ear.  Do not consider my current tube set as gospel.  Just works for me for now.

I suggested Doug because he has the experience to offer up sound recommendations.  He has fair prices (tested) and stellar service & reputation , but you might find better deals on his suggestions elsewhere.  Rabbit hole time.  Or just play them Bug labeled tubes til they melt. :-*    I really hate spending $$$ unnecessarily so I tend to seek out the best perceived value in this stuff.  Not the cheapest necessarily.

 I've bought matched quads of 6l6 & el34 , use them as a pair and have spares. Nesstone is cheaper than matched pair compared to some sellers.   https://nesstone.com/product/russian-el84-power-vacuum-tube/ They carry a few preamp tubes too , more than they used to have. 

I'm a poorboy been buying JJ's from Tube Depot https://tubedepot.com/t/tubes/preamp-tubes?utf8=%E2%9C%93&per_page=

Got a quad of Nesstone's cheapest 6v6's too they work. The voltages are what I look at  :P
