6k8 are near 7k5 I suggest when having B+ around 300V. So its a good op point for Rload too.

Iko, you should try this pre, if you haven' t yet.

This version which stays on the roadmap of the original 6V6 pre concept must be much more economical to make than your splendid #26 build with TVC and OPT? I wonder how closely it fares to the premium preamp in the system. If its a poor man's special pre at all.

Well, first, when I decided to go for #26 pre, I knew I was not aiming for the ultimate fidelity, but for a nice tone and liquid mids. And it has these qualities. This is more truthful to the source and more dynamic with bigger stereo size, depth and resolution.
I' m tempted to take the TVC from the other pre and put it here now that I have the space......

More "monitor" but less "tone"?

Compared to a 26, yes.

vgeorge,
has its signature changed using different power amps. What have you paired it with?

TSSA and Baby Huey. Brings the best out of them.
Have not listened much yet, but the sonic signature is more or less the same.
I think it would be ideal for F5 though, or other low gain amps with highish input impedance.

Didnt like it with F5 at all. BA3, completely different story. I know. It sounds stupid. THank goodness its just an opinion. BA3 seems to get out of the way more, as crazy as that sounds. I have parts for TSSA coming.

Built a few F5, not my favored amp, liked an Aleph J, I still have, more. But the two I mentioned before are my favorites.
I think that for the people who like the F5 it should be considered.
