    Did some more research. Apparently these tubes won’t be available from the usual tube sellers. Only thru Audio Note and their dealers.

    I’m sure they are wonderful. Wonder how they’d sound in my Luxman amp?

    I’m thinking about buying some. Peter Q has pretty good ears. If he thinks they’re good, they just might be!

    I got out one of my old 300B amps a couple of days ago to use in my 2nd system, and it sounds even better than I remember. It uses RCA 5U4G rectifiers and RCA 6SL7 drivers with a TJ solid plate 300B. Not as romantic as the 2A3 amp I’ve been using. I miss a bit of the 2A3 warmth but like the enhanced 300B detail and leading edge transients. I wish I knew if I could use EML mesh plates, which I have in my other 300B amp. The power transformer is a replacement that Jack Elliano (ElectraPrint) made for me almost 10 yrs ago after the original had a meltdown. Jack also made me 2 OPTs with silver secondaries. It really is a great amp now!
