Bas,
You got to try it with Salas HV shunt supply. Makes a difference. Go all out. It is worth it. I even sparng for some RCA NOS Blackplate Military grade tubes. ONce again, well worth it. Would not have done so if i was not impressed enought to make it a permanent fixture.

Would be happy with some O-Rings for 6V6's bases, since they are vibration sensitive when in 15dB gain mode. Especially the cylindrical anode NOS ones except RCA which is noticeably better for that, but all get affected a bit.

I'm getting the new Tungsol 6v6. Will make a plan if microphony is a problem.

The Tungsol will get you 85% of the way, maybe more. We all know that most of the money is spent in tweakers corner. Salas, Do you think heat will be a problem in thats structured cell setup. I really like the ease of setup. Jsut cant beat it for a quick case. Looks good to boot with tennon joinery

Well, each one bottle runs at 5W, I will have to go aim my IR gun at their bases, because I forgot how many C I had found on them. I will report in 5 mins so you will be able to judge if it can darken that wood and its finish around the bases collars.

I've already done some searching. Turns out. Apart from other 6V6's there is 6F6G and others. Looks like a tweakers dream.

I'm also considering the Lundahl LL1660/25mA as output instead of caps? Has anyone tried that? But first I'm building it as specced by Salas.
