Default Emission Labs 300B Mesh plate

Has anyone had the chance to try the new EML Meshplate 300B.

From DHT Rob's www.dhtrob.com site:

Luisteren...
De eerste geluiden die de EML passeren zijn goed en hebben potentie. Een paar dagen later heeft de buis duidelijk "zijn draai" gevonden: geen veranderingen meer in klank. De EML blijft "rotsvast" op 63mA ingesteld staan en ook bij hogere luistervolumes geeft deze geen krimp. De typerende gaas-anode klank van vroeger is van toepassing: Vergeleken met de KR een iets luchtiger presentatie zonder echter in dynamiek in te boeten. Stemmen worden natuurlijk neergezet zonder scherpte en de laagweergave is meer dan in orde. Waar de EML de meerdere is tov. de KR is de drie-dimensionaliteit: het podium strekt zich nét even verder uit achter en buiten de luidsprekers. De tonale balans is zeer goed waardoor de weergave constant boeit en aandacht vraagt!


De EML 300B in bedrijf op de eindversterker...

Conclusie:
Een 300B met echte gaas-anode welke tonaal zeer correct is en een luchtige weergave combineert met een groot drie-dimensionaal podium zonder in te leveren in dynamiek. De gevraagde prijs (kleine 400 Euro p/paar) maakt het een zeer interessante (eind)buis die zeker overwogen dient te worden bij het ontwerp van een versterker en welhaast zeker een upgrade zal zijn wanneer toegepast ter vervanging van een 300B...


Translation:

Listening...
The first few notes produced by the EML are good and the valve right away shows that it has potential. A couple of days later the valve has "settled in" : I.e. no more changes to the sound.

The EML has locked on to 63mA and stays there, even at higher listening volumes.

The typical mesh plate signature sound is also heard with this valve. Compared to the KR, the EML sounds a tad more "airy", without being worse in the dynamics department.
Voices are portrayed naturally without any edginess and the lows are fine. Compared to the KR the EML wins in the portrayal of dimensional representation. The soundstage is just a little wider and deeper. Tonal balance is very good and causes the listener to constantly be drawn into/to the music.

Conclusion:
A 300B with a real mesh anode that is tonally very correct and which combines an airy and big three dimensional soundstage without losing in the dynamics department. The price of around 400 euro's per pair makes it very worthwhile of consideration and will most likely be an upgrade when replacing your current 300B's.
