Curious to hear more of your experience rolling rectifier tubes compared to driver or output tubes as in which have most impact to roll and other differences...

Everyone here seems to be knowledgeable about tube vendors so I figured I'd ask here.  

 

Does anyone know of a decent source for purchasing a pair of EML 300B mesh plates?

Not yet. Glenn owns the HD800 and suggests it is a more refined pairing than the HD650. Maybe I'll hit the streets for a mini-mini meet with an HD800 owner.

 

Also, tell me about your K-Mok shopping spree... what did you get?

rectifier tube comparison thread done! (also just to have a 5U4G tube roller thread to go with the 6AS7G/6SN7 threads out there). now to work on the 6AS7G comparison (which i will just pop into the 6AS7G thread).

Glenn, would the 5U8C work in the 300b amp?

No the 5 volt winding is only 3 amps the fact that I couldn't use the 3DG4 due to it's PIV voltage is to low

for the B+ in a 300B amp. So I had transformers wound for 5volt 3amp there was no reason for

the extra cost to make the 5 volt be 5amp.

In the OTL the B+ is lower and I have the 5 volt taped at 3.3 volts and the winding is 5amps because the

3DG4 draws 4amps. And I have leeway to use the 5U8C.

Glenn just wondering if you have built solid state before? Someone said something about a hybrid amp before.

We don't want Glenn wasting his time on SS amps.

I would say that any time spent on creating amps that make music be it through SS or Tubes is not wasted. :)

Besides, I love both worlds!

I haven't tried any good SS amps for headphones. There is nowhere in Ireland to try them out. I had to organize the first Irish meet just to hear the HD800 and other gears. I am only interested in tube amps at the moment but i would love to hear some SS amps. You guys are lucky in that you can just go to your local meet but on the island here there is not really a chance of that. Even at the London meet they did not have the amps that i was interested in (WA5,DNA,GSXMK2)

 

Anyway i look forward to the new Glenn builds, i wonder will there be any more before the year is out?

 

Clayton Do you still have WA2 or WA22? Could you post a picture of your OTL beside one of the woo's. I think you have the smaller chassis though i was thinking the nwer build beside the Glenn OTL just to see what my rig will eventually look like. :D
