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

RE: Indeed it is...

According to Dennis Fraker, any 2A3 from China is inferior, "trash", due to poor metallurgy. It MAY possibly sound OK when new, but it will soon turn to trash over time, due to poor metallurgy.

The best two 2A3s to use are the JJ 2A3-40, and the EMLs, period.

The JJ is, by far, the best value of the two, and what Dennis designs for and supplies in his 2A3 amps in 2016. He ran JJs at RMAF this year, see Herbie Reichert's reviews for Stereophile, of his listening experience.
