thats interesting because i know they are using hard to find tubes for their continental amplifiers....wonder how many more continentals they can come out with if they are using old deadstock tubes before they run out.

You can get backup Thompson 6111s as I did online. That is the best way to protect your investment.

Love the V2 as it was the second amp I ever got and I sold it to get the V3.

I love it.

Not sure you really need a back up 6111 tube. I sure ALO Audio would  have a supply of these in-stock. Also in their literature they do mention because of the rated life of the tube, replacement is non issue.

I don't think this is an entirely true conclusion, as the V2 has a Raytheon that they ran out of stock and then the Thomson, which IMHO was a fantastic tube. I bet the V4 - if there is such a product - will have a GE AF 6111A
