The Citation II uses a pentode input 12BY7, in a very wide bandwidth design.
It is a good push pull amp - not my absolute favourite. I can see why some may really like it.
Some of these amps in a vintage set up playing with the Quads prior to my listening room being built.... the Futterman is on the bottom shelf- the Citation on the top.
I plan to try the Futterman on the Beveridge panels see what happens ....
I guess it was easy for you to know I was off base about the 12B4. That's a beautiful set-up, right down to the Audio Research SP3 or 3A or whatever iteration. That was the preamplifier, along with the AR Dual 50, that opened my eyes to tube amplification. OTLs came a few years later.
My friend and I used to joke that the safest way to use the Dual 50 was to keep it unplugged.
