Emission Labs EML 274B - Pics and small Review vs. Sophia Princess 274B - Page 3

They do, you just have to contact Jack as EML aren't listed on their site.
Yes! Please, any insight would be great!
I would really like to hear opinions about EML 5U4G vs EML 274B. This because I find the highs with the the EML 274B a bit too ear piercing for me (at least when paired with the 7236 power tubes), so I'm particularly wondering if the 5U4G is different in this regard?
Also is the text on the Sophia Princess base yellow or gold?. I have seen pictures where it looks like metallic gold paint, but on these pictures it looks like just plain yellow paint. Also anyone have any opinions on the sound differences between the Sophia 274B rigid and mesh plate?
Personally I'm not completely satisfied with the EML 274B, thus I'm looking for alternatives (or pairing it with more suitable driver/power tubes). In my WA22 paired with Shuguang Treasure CV-181Z and Sylvania 7236 power tubes, the EML 274B highs are too ear piercing and the vocals too "laid back" for my taste. So it doesn't fit all kinds of music (especially metal/hard rock) IMO. With 6080 power tubes, this is less of a problem but still.. For the kind of music I listen to I actually prefer the smoother RCA 5U4GB and the RCA 5R4GY rectifier, though they are so dull looking compared to the stunning EML
