I will have to take some time to compare this with my otherwise identical CTH with Sonicap Gen II coupling caps.
Nice! Would like to hear what you think. And they look to fit in BoM case too

Listening to an NOS one of these now & they are quite nice. Good bass slam/attack while preserving good detail & ever so slightly rolled top-end - all good things & all IMHO of course. Now the only ones on my "someday" search list are Siemens CCa & CBS 7730 but no rush on those for sure...Edit: But of my tubes, Siemens E82CC/12AU7 is still my "detail king" revealing things in the music I've not noticed before. Mine happens to be the fancy-pants "chrome plate" ver. Might have to snag that Siemens Triple Mica 5814A tho.
Tube rolling is really something for sure & as mentioned elsewhere we may
have even more options for this amp, for the tweakers anyway.
I need to thin my tube herd & put some in FS forum <<< Edit: Well not really thinning since I still buying them
