Reims is one of my yearly trips, it's not even a 2 hour drive from my place. Was thinking of taking Clayton there, but we'll see.

BTW there is a lot of talk about the 596 lately on the Woo thread, I don't know why it's been glorified so much.

 

After all it's just the female version of the 5U4GB.

 

Yeah, those 596 lovers don't know what good sound is. I'll have a 5U4G(B) any time! The RK-60 is also very nice, have you had a chance to listen to that one?

Ah, Ultra we are in the different strokes club...I have a 5U4GB and prefer the 596...Both are at the top of my list though.

What you need to do is touch one. And caress it if you rolleyes.gifmust. And then find a way to hear it.

That's exactly what I did with a seashell that I picked up on the beach yesterday afternoon.

Hey Glenn,

 

any idea why those 5Z4G CV1863 keep blowing up in my amp? They do work fine in Clayton's amp.

 

Thx!

The 5Z4G is only good for 125ma your amp has two 300Bs at 70ma each and two C3gs at 20ma each

This is 180ma plus recharge current to the capacitors. This is why they are blowing up.

Clayton's mono block amps only have one 300B and one C3g per amp this adds up to 90ma this is fine

for a 5Z4.

Do you want me to build you a semi SS amp? A 6SN7 driving high power mosfets

120 watts output into a 8 ohm load nearly twice that into a 4 ohm load.

You don't need to buy any 6SN7s I know you have them or 12SN7s or 25SN7s will all work.

No tube addiction only two 6SN7s   More power then you will ever need easy to blow your speakers up ?
