5Y3 should be easily obtainable but you can probobly use a GZ34 it also has a 2amp heater.

This isn't for me and isn't for one of your amps.  Someone posted the question in another forum so I figured I would go to the experts here for an answer.

The 5Y3G is a nice rectifier tube IMHO. I actually preferred it over the 5U4G in the Deware Mini-Torri when I had it.

Which 5Y3G did you use?

Have you tried a Glenn amp yourself?

A bunch, of course biggrin.gif But the Sylvania, Ken-Rad, and Raytheon all sounded pretty much the same to me.

No, although I would very much like to hear one at some point. There is a steady stream of headphone amps through here these days for me to review on InnerFidelity, and so I don't have any interest in buying any headphone amps. And I don't think Glenn is trying to build a big business, so I've never approached him to send me one to review, since if he did send one and I did review it on IF, it would probably result in a lot more requests for him to build more of them.

I read this thread because I have some good friends who post here a lot and I like tube talk biggrin.gif

I've been told by Glenn that the 5Y3 will burn out fast in his 300B amps so I haven't used them. It is my favorite diminutive rectifier.

I have several which I have never listened to.  I'll have to see what component I can use them in.

Yes I agree the chat on here is usually of a high caliber and a lot of fun. I was wondering about the 6528 power tube if anybody had heard it in an OTL? Maybe you have experience with this tube? Supposedly very powerful. Sorry if you have been asked this a thousand times.

I'll be in Chicago for Thanksgiving. I can drop off the OTL if you would like to give it a listen. :evil:

The 6528 is a terrible sounding tube. In that type, the 6336 is the way to go.

the decware amps are specifically voiced and designed around the 5y3 aren't they?

post #6569 of 10631
I don't know about "voiced", but they are more stable with the 5Y3G.

Oh and sorry for my failing memory - it was the CSP-2 I had that used the 5Y3G, not the Mini-Torri.

I own 4 decware amps and 3 of them shipped with 5U4G rectifiers. The 4th one shipped with EZ81s--the Mini Torii.
