That's odd. I am getting everything that you mentioned AND the warmth. It's why I rave about them so much - the GZ32 covers pretty much all the sonic bases for me.

 

I have only tried 2 GZ32s and both have been winners. I have 2 more that I am yet to burn in - they might be different (but I hope not).

 I should have mentioned at the time I was comparing it to the S/P Princess, which IMO was a much warmer sounding tube.

Question for the WA5/WA5LE owners out there - has anyone compared the EAT 300B and EML 300B-XLS?

 

I am told they are very similar sonically and materially (perhaps even manufactured by the same folks)?

 

I am picking up a pair of EAT 300Bs next week to try. I also have an eye on a pair of EML 300B XLS, but if they are very similar in sound to the EATs I might save my cash.

 

Appreciate any info.

Just make sure to get the GZ32 that is marked CV593, those are the NOS baby U52's.  You can find them anywhere from $50 to $90 depending on how good you are at looking for them, Upscale I know has/had a reasonable stock of them and they aren't all that rare if you look around.  I am sure the prices will go up like most of the tubes as soon as they become popular and people start gouging.

 

Wish I could find a metal base GZ34 but you have people selling them for nearly $800, which is utterly insane for a single rectifier tube by my standards.  Then again the WE274B goes for a nice $1200+ for a single, although one was up a few months back that sold for $630, almost considered it just for the resale value.

 

what about these?

My girlfriend informs me that there are laws against white slavery. BTW what are those tube driven beauties that I have to sell my house to get, and oh, where am I going to live?

Not sure if that is the right one or not, maybe Glenn or someone else can comment.   Looking at the tube itself though, doesn't look to have the same layout as the CV593 internally.
