I'm not sure but I found few places in Japan sell them.

Basically a WA22 in a small box...:eek:

What's the current asking price? Also, is it any cheaper to have them bought locally, insured & shipped or no difference in price online?

Maybe you taste of sound is the warmer side. The RP010B has pretty warm sound for a SS amp ( used to own it). I can see that one matching very good with the T1 especially with the stock cable.

It seems as though people who have listened to them and the EMLs seem to prefer them (at a higher price point).  And then you have the AVVTs and the KR globes.

Are they worth it? Have you heard them? I mean, you're not buying a pair because they are expensive and packaged in a wooden box, are you? ;)

post #28587 of 30965

That's the problem.  I have no way to hear them.  With these expensive tubes one has to go on others' opinions which have been very positive.

 

I think YOU need to buy a pair and then lend them to me so I can make an educated decision.

 

Any pair I end up buying will be unheard.  I did hear Frank's EML's, but in a completely different amp.

There are few places in Japan you can audition it with Shindo Lab amp.

I see. Okay. Has anyone here actually owned or heard a Western Electric 300B? I've never ever seen one in the glass nor have I ever heard one. :(

I have heard it long long time ago but that memory was gone, all I remember is that I sit still for over an hours listening.
