I presume removing the board entails disconnecting the transformer...

You have to unsolder the front and rear panels from the board as well as the transformer connections.

Thanks Scutey. The top box has 3 fans in it drawing air up the pipes near the tubes and blowing it out of the back. So far it seems to be keeping things cooler without too much noise

​Surely impressive!  Must have been a fun project!

​Everything I've used with the c3g's has sounded good, 6n6p/ir , and my 6sn7's, EH, Philips JAN6sn7wgta and PSAVENE UK-6SN7. At the mo I've got hold of some Foton 1965 6n6p and they sound great with them too, my experience so far is that they pair well with most tubes.
 
Ok, challenge accepted. I had this week the chance to sell ony of my DACs which I was not using anymore to a friend, so I have decided to reinvest some of the money into more fun.
I ordered 2 Siemens C3G + a pair of adapters from Hong Kong. But it will take 3 weeks to receive them. Since I am not in a hurry I decided to take standard shipping.
We will hear in one month with some impressions. And it seems to me that I am the lucky bastard who does not have to cut any rings, since MK2 does not have them.

As Scutey said,  You will love them.  They are dead quiet.  Look what they made me do (Ha Ha Ha)
