RE: Phase inverter tube choice question

I am MORE than happy using my Sherwood S-5000 (EL84M Russian tubes).

I ran a dedicated input line directly into the driver tube and bypassed the entire preamp section. The 7199 driver is now a Amperex 7643 gold pin driver tube. The entire unit has been fully restored/upgraded by Mike Samra.

There is nothing like the sound of a good EL84. It's amazing and I always loved it.

My summer time amp is a fully restored Marantz 250M. To me it just ain't getting much better than these two amps.

So what am I getting if I sell the VTA - who knows???? But I know I don't need or really want anything else right now.
