For the Sentec PA8 2N5880 and 2N5882 were used originaly but 5884/86 was often used as a repair replacement.
Confirming though that 5884/86 was used in ML2 amp. In my opinion the Sentec was the better sounding amp with a normal
speaker (decent load) setup, but the ML2 were an incredible amp in many ways anyhow. Had availability to both/threes in those days
and could listen to both setups side by side on Quad 57ths. single pair.
