RE: JAN5670W vs GE white 5 star (or red) 5670 Triple mica

Again, your mileage may vary. I have used both the JAN and 5 Star line-up as front ends in a pair of Bottlehead Paramounts driving TJ mesh plate 300B's. There has been virtually zero difference as far as my ears can tell.

One of the hallmarks of the GE 5670 series was being ultra linear no matter the JAN or 5 Star designation. The 5 Star rating was for durability in mission critical applications. As far as I can tell the guts were identical. Never have seen a triple mica version.

Get the JAN set and don't look back. It will outlast you and you can then obsess over something else equally important... like did you get a Shinto priest to bless your soon to be retired Grace F9E Ruby cartridge???
