Well they are finally both back together. New set of Output tubes for the blown up unit. Due to the grid leak resistor values (270K) I biased them very conservatively at 60mA idle each tube.
Both 6AN8A had weak triode sections (the concertina phase splitter) so put new RCA 6AN8A in both monoblocks.
Ran them for 2 hours on my system for a final confidence test.
What did I think of them ? Well frankly I far prefer my 10W per Channel 6V6 Baby Huey. Better Imaging, better pace, less low end "covered" veil, better top end extension, well better everything except maximum volume.
Cheers,
Ian
