RE: What's the story on 6H30 tubes?

"Luckily I don't need them."

:>D How much do you want to bet the overpriced replacements ARC sells are the same that Jim McShane offers? ;>) The stuff New Sensor currently makes is pretty darned good and, from a practical perspective, "the only game in town." Send that fellow with ARC equipment to Jim.

The situation is not too dissimilar to that of RCA 7189s and Russian EL84Ms. If you can get them, RCAs are obscenely expensive, while the Russian variant is reasonably priced, tough as all heck, and sounds good.

Pining over "unobtanium" is a waste of time and energy.
