On ebay. Just setup your account to receive notification whenever a new U52 is posted for sale. Luckily I was able to grab a tube from within my own country,
On further listening to the U52, I'm hearing fatter, looser bottom end compared to the Philips 5R4GY. And tight, punchy bottom end is what the EML 5U4G excelled at so... if you listen to a lot of modern music with strong bass, the EML might be the way to go.
Good assessment on the U52 and EML 5U4G! U52 has a smoother high and a larger soundstage, while EML 5U4G has a punchier bottom which sounds more engaging to me. I think it also depends on the upstream gears and personal preference to determine which rectifier is more suitable, definitely good to have both to compare in your own system.
