RE: 845 replacements

Thanks for the 845 replacement suggestions but I forgot to mention in my original post that the HK retailer warned me not to replace the output valves with anything other than those using graphite plates. I'm showing my ignorance again but I remember something about the Icon Audio running it's 845's at higher than usual voltage making metal plate 845's a risky proposition.
I've no idea if that's true but I'm averse to experimenting with output tubes on this thing as the thought of having to replace transformers fills me with horror.
