RE:I am using CLCLC

The reason it appears smoother with the 5R4 is because you are lowering your B+ with the 5R4 and therefore lowering peak power and raising distortion.Put the two tubes in and measure your comparative B+ at the first cap and the output stage.
Also,if there is a 12UF Vitamin Q for that first cap,leave it alone.I didn't realize you had two monstrous chokes.It reminds me of my Pedersen KT66 amps which are fantastic and I only have a 6uf VitQ off the 5V4 going into a pair of chokes.
