Default Output Transformers: Monolith vs. Tribute

I'm planning on building a single-ended amp with the EML1605 tube. My top two choices for OPTs are Monolith Magnetics and Tribute. I was wondering if anyone has compared the two or has any comments on either of them.

i have the Monolith in my GM70 amps. Have not compared to other transformers in this same amp though. Costs is prohibitive of the luxury to have a couple of different transformers to compare. The Monolith sound absolutely fantastic ; they produced with passion.
