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

RE: EML 45

It's the best 45 ever built and it's NOT an RCA (thank God!).

The filaments in a NOS 45 are folded into a "W" or "M" shape. A lot of 2A3s were built this way also-- and 300Bs like the Western Electrics. Trying to get accurate music reproduction out of any of these is a joke.

They are euphonic on certain kinds of music, always have high distortion levels, and also trash certain other music! Definitely for Euphonists.

For the objective of us who also hear well, EML is part of your ticket to real sounding music.

Learn how to use these properly designed tubes and leave the misdesigned New Old Stock stuff where it belongs-- in Museums.
