However, that should not stop us from experimenting. Great things come from trying ideas, and learning.
Don't forget also, that we have differing expectations. What's acceptable to one, is not to all.

Cheers,
If it sounds good to the experimenter then so be it , if it measures crap but still sounds good ditto . We all have our standards . Personally I have also had very poor results with HT chokes as anode chokes (oil-filled c-cores) , the midrange was there but little else but don't let my opinions put anyone off . Probably better off using higher HT and a current source instead . However I have had promising results using mains toroids as centre-tapped push-pull chokes which I feel are worth persuing further . One thing I can suggest is that those with less revealing (warm'n'woolly) speakers are not going to notice the difference so it's not going to matter !

Nor are any other suggested mods, IMO.
