RE: 300b set versus 300b parallel set

If you have the Empress, I can highly recommend updating some of the electrolytics (like the cathode bypass cap) with the newest Kaisei model; the same goes for the new silver, non-magnetic resistors. I have worked with 2 mfrs (AN and Donald North Audio) to do this and these have significant impact on sound quality. On my Conqueror Silver, the bass was substantially improved. Yes the 300B can "snap". Other "things" also sound better, as a whole - more like the Conquest. I haven't tried this with my Fi 2A3/45 monos, and don't now if I will. I trust Don's choices a lot.
