Is a 6AN7 the same as a 6AN7A and is a 6BA6 the same as a 6BA6W. I am thinking about ordering them.

6AN7A is perfectly fine. Never heard of a 6BA6W, but I can only assume it should be ok too.

The reason why I ask is because I have a printout of what they have in front of me they have no 6AN7s or 6BA6 but have the others.

Some valves are getting scarce & those who have only a few now tend to sit on them.
