Those can be expensive NOS tubes. Maybe the best 6V6s ever. Did you manage to get a good pair in some logical price?

$130 for the pair. Expensive, if just building another amp, but i like this one enough that it will stay. Consider also that the match, and build quality are much higher without any doubt. Obvious that these were the creme of the crop, bein gmiltary version, in a time of the pinnacle of tube making. My brother has always been a NOS guy and i though ti twas just fo rspenin gmoney and bragging, but new tubes cant rouch these things. They plugged perfectl yinto your schematic with no filamen ttweaking or anything else needed. My brother, a long time tub enut, will be dropping by to give a lsiten. He has heard everythin gi have built and i am interested to hea rwhat he has to say about this combo. Your pre adds just th erigh ttouch of bloom and space, fo rlack o fbetter words, to my BA3 power amp. Wonderful combo. Next is finishin gthe new tube psu. Just scored a Hammond 193 Q, 10H and 500mA pooted choke for CLC. Cant wait. I will be tryin gother schemes using new Tungsol(excleent buy an drecommendation, BTW). Perhaps choke loaded and even balanced version. Thanks again Salas!

I'm using the Russian 6n6c and I really like the sound. I've got a dozen or so used but good 6V6's (RCA etc.) but these are my favorites so far. I'm driving a Bob Latino ST-120 that I put together a while back. Many many thanks to Salas for this excellent design. I built it as per post one and have probably 50 hours on it. Just keeps sounding better.

A quickie from my phone. I put all of the power supply components in a separate enclosure.

Yes sir. Sounds better than it looks. I actually salvaged the PT from a Korean era US Navy receiver. Most everything else (Mundorfs etc.) were as per your design.

Fine, as per total schematic. I see 4 golden screws around each tube also. Are there resiliently hanging boards off of those?
