RE: New Russian Tung Sol 6V6GT best sound? NOT

Jim, I built the Poindexter amp. Then, I improved it. I sent the info to Eric Kingsbury. He raised the audio transformer primary impedance per my recommendations, but did not follow up with the other mods.

My modified 6V6 triode connected outperformed his amp- no contest. His amp as mentioned in the 6 Moons review had a somewhat unclear presentation. I agree, it did. But, still sounded ok. Unfortunately, his amp likely could not distinguish much difference in 6V6GT tubes. My modified amp way outperformed his amp & I heard all the details clearly. I went to Sylvania CHS 7C5 as the plate is same as Sylvania 6V6G that were the best sounding tubes, but horribly expensive.

So, I hope I cleared up any misunderstanding here.
