Russia (and China) pretty much dominate the new tube market now.

I've run across a couple of LPs produced in the old Soviet Bloc that sound very nice indeed.

Are you interested in gear from the Soviet Union or the eastern bloc in general?

The Eastern Block would be the Soviet Union, without it you just have Russia.

This has been knowledge you will never need with you host Vintage Hi-F!

Soviet Hi-Fi equipment, Strong like Tractor, Sounds like Bull...I have a Diora "Calypso" radio made in Poland, it is a knock-off of the German wooden table-model sets of the 1950s-'60s...Surprisingly, it even has the 88-108 MC FM band...Not a very good performer, & the finish is pretty laughable compared to the Grundigs, Emuds, SABAS, etc it was supposed to compete with. I got it mainly because I didn't have a Combloc radio of any kind, I never saw one like it before or since.

There were EB states that weren't part of the Soviet Union - Poland, Yugoslavia, etc.

Cool question; never really thought about it. I'm interested to see what comes up.
