I have only used Exicons as Holton was a large influence on designing and interest in building amps. I have to order more laterals in the very year future and while resistors and capacitors all have unique sonic qualities, can the same be said about laterals? If I decided to use the seme or other mfg for the next order to save time matching transistors and the other components and topography the same, would the results and tonal quality be virtually identical? Part of me wants to say no because of the switching nature of a transformer however another part of me wants to say since it is in the path of the signal the tone will be different from one MFG to the next. Can anyone please chime in with their experience?
