The Elekit with the stock 2A3 had too much gain I had to increase the NFB because it was resonating at female voices. Now sounds great and it's still loud at 12 o'clock and its clipping at 2 o'clock. I'm looking for a pair of 300B before I make additional changes I believe they can use the additional gain just fine. Any recommendations before I spend $$$.

Shuguang Treasure - not an entry level price for 300Bs, but if my experience with the 6CA7s was any indication, it'd not be money wasted

I also had great results with EH Gold grids

what are the driver tubes?

I'm using Sylvania 6SN7WGT Great driver tubes good extended the low end. For 300B I was considering the Svetlana 300B but are around $300 also, Psvane 300b T II but again over $300 for a pair!

Currently I use a D-Sonic M3-800S. Although, I have ordered a 300B integrated amplifier from Twin Audio and will be awaiting it's arrival in the next 2-3 months while it's produced and shipped. I'm looking forward to hearing my Mark Audio speakers with a quality 300B amp. Should be awesome.

Hi Guys,
I've been getting excellent results with a slightly modified BR box design originally from Dr. Scott. Its height (O/D) has been shortened from 403mm to 370mm. I'm currently using a 300B SET, Accuphase DP65 CD player, Mac Mini - ITunes for sources (see pics).

Excellent large (if slightly soft) bass from the port @ 160mm, quite wide LF responses considering its a port. I'm finding the smaller internal volume suits my tastes from the original larger box, but bear in mind this is personal listening preference.

Scott also mentioned to me that a 12litre box using a 35mm port around 110mm long could produce a pleasing alignment. Good thing about simple BR's is they're easy to make and affordable. I'll make a few more during the months ahead.

I'll be using my 6V6 next week to compare.

Thanks
Mark.

Anybody know if the above drivers are the 10.3's ?
It's great that such a "simple" enclosure can produce such satisfying results.

Scotts bookshelf design is for A10.3/A10P, so we'll have to assume it's a 10.3, unless Mark says otherwise.

Yes, 10M G3's with modded coils. Trying them out. Will have the 10P BR cabs later in the month.

Cheers
Mark.
