6N6P’s in the back have no direct replacements.
Are the front two tubes 6N1p or 6922?

6N1P don’t really have 100% direct subs, and I purposely avoid tube equipment with 6922 type tubes, mainly because really good 6922 tubes are getting very difficult to find and becoming extremely pricey, even by today’s NOS tube standards.

What would the point even be of having 10 valves?

If they are power tunes, that means more watts, EX some Jadis amps have 24 x KT90/KT120/KT150, that can produce depending on which tube is used, 350 watts per channel.

Usually it’s done to increase power output either by running them in parallel to increase current output, or just in multiple gain stages to increase Voltage then running that through a transformer to get the current.
I have a pair of 130W Tube monoblocks each one takes 2 pre tubes and 6 power tubes, and will happily heat a fair sized room in Winter.

You can also use output tube in parallel on an OTL design to better drive speakers directly or low impedance headphones.
