Single Ended Triodes (SETs), the ultimate tube lovers dream.

2A3-S is a 28W tube, not 15W.

It's loafing, should last a good long time, and sound pretty darn nice at 15W. If it doesn't, the recommended use and 28W rating would be misleading.

I'm well aware of how Jac likes his tubes used - I've communicated with him several times and he outlines it on the EML site. I wouldn't be suggesting it if I did not have some understanding. For example, I would not run the 17W 2A3-M at 15W... more like 10W.

Cheers,
91.
