So you prefer the KR tubes over EML Stravros?

BTW don't tell Glenn he can't leave the control room,there will be nobody to build my amp then!

I just found some used EML Solid Plate 300B on Echo Audio for $300 due to a nice member posting a link...have preferred them on my amp against the mesh plates and they will back-up/vary the KR PX-4 I have. So patience and luck can help with the popular tubes too.

 

These unusual tubes Glenn uses are less expensive, interesting, and some are really beautiful or cool. I am very interested in hearing some Glenn configurations!

I'm leaning toward getting some EML mesh plates for a budget upgrade for 300B tubes eventually.  Ordered a few NOS 6SL7's for the time being and see how the output tube affects the sound of the EC Equilibrato SE I picked up.  Also would help if I can find time to set up the amp in a permanent position but I've been so busy lately.

I am hooked on my AVVT AV300BSL-C37.

I never tried the EML yet, I tend to buy NOS tubes as I can get modern production any time.

^Thanks, rosgr...I let Daigo know he could borrow the EML 300B Solid Plates if he wants to try them.  (He's a local. Other locals let me borrow the EML Solid & Mesh. bigsmile_face.gif)

I am glad to here that you guys had a good time and I bet Clayton didn't want to leave.

We did have a good time indeed, lot's of wine, beer and way too much food. You will have to ask Clayton, he seemed kind of happy to get on that train biggrin.gif

We did try the C3G in the 339 and they work, I'm sure C will give his impressions too when he's back.

 

The C3G sounded good but the EF80 and 6SJ7 sound better. The C3G gave it a more dynamic and faster sound but the Bass didn't have the footprint it has with the EF80 and the mid range sounded tuned down compared to the EF80. The sound was not bad at all but we both agreed the sound with the EF80 was more coherent and had more impact.

 

I wonder what Clayton is going to say about the 339, he also liked the ss Violectric V200 a lot, but I'll leave the amp and headphone talk up to himself to post on here.
