RE: 2A3 Options

To my mind there is only one option.

If you are running 2A3s near full rated dissipation and you would like a similar but more "refined" sound than the JJ, I would suggest the EML 2A2-S.

The EML will last a good long time at near 15W dissipation. It sounds more even and resolved than the JJ; it's dynamics are not quite as great - it is not a overtly propulsive, but seems honest to me. The build quality is better than the JJ.
