do you like the F6 with Jensen better than before? Has the sound improved?

coming from ultra resolution of J2, it was another sound I had to get customer to....

Botte is right the medium area with the Jensen is similar to the F3 sound with a bit better bottom.

"For reasons unknown" I like the Edcor as an available xformer a bit more....

but it is really a matter of taste... Even I could change all day long and enjoy both sounds...

I take that as a high compliment.

Default Interest in a phase inverting diy F6?

If yes, a theoretical schematic is attached. The following modifications are principally the re-wiring of the parent.
  • The parent output node is now Ground
  • The output node is now the parent Star Ground
  • Each channel in a stereo enclosure must have its independent power supply.
  • The phase notations of the Jensen's primary windings are reversed.
Will it work? Detriment or value?

With transformer coupling there is no reason that you cannot float the power supplies, assuming that the feedback is correctly phased and at the correct level.
OTOH, if you are going to float the power supplies why not implement a circlotron? You can even dispense with coupling transformers if you follow the path chosen by Rothacher The Amazing Fet Circlotron by Mike Rothacher.
