Whoaaa... Most of that went right over my head. But I was able to pick up 
that they're not alike since Triton's are bluer and FS are redder.

I guess I was assuming that since Triton tubes only lose 10% of their output 
then that means that there won't be a huge difference when I put in the new 
C50 compared to the old "re-labeled Triton" aka GE FS.

That's what I'm thinking too. But I just wanted to make sure. Thanks everyone 
for your replies. I've decided to exchange my no-good Triton tube at my LFS 
and I should get a replacement tomorrow.
