RE: Cool little Sakuma Style 6bq5 amp

It's hard to screw up the sound of a 6BQ5. You can drive it with a number of tubes, and it will sound amazing. Don't care for the 'AX7 in this situation, but the EF86 and other pentodes do a terrific job. The 6V6 is very close, perhaps not quite as dynamic, but a little more natural to my ears. Difficult to beat the cost of the Russian 6BQ5 these days. :)
