Cool Fran! I KNOW how nice a good EL84/6BQ5 amp can be on 604-8Gs - definitely my favourite pentode power tube.

The EL84 amp I spent the most time with on my Altecs was the single-ended Almarro but damn was it good - OK, I did go back to 2A3, but I really didn't feel like I had to. :)
Hi Bill,

You know me, I'm still waiting on a nice 2A3 to cross my path...someday. I finally gave up on my ever building one, I think. Someday! :)

Are you looking for PP or SE EL84?
PP though I’d consider SE. Great news; my intended EL84 deal is back on and I can‘t wait to post about it once it’s in my hands.
Congrat’s @Fran604g, I’m sure that’s a special pairing.

I wonder of anyone might be interested in a 604 amp pairing thread, posting on what they’ve sampled with their 604’s and noting what did/didn’t work and why.

Gotta say, I'm a happy man, Woody! This amp coupled with my 604-8Gs has full and deep bass extension, along with liquid mids and shimmering highs. It has easily bested the other amps I have kicking around. I've wanted to try an EL 84 power amp for quite some time. Now I understand why so many like this output tube. Gotta say I love it.

Kudos for a stellar and fast packing/shipping experience - and delivery on the Sunday of a 3-day holiday weekend to boot!

Cheers,
Fran

That was a very appealing amp.

I just didn’t want to read that glowing review while my two pairs of 604-8G’s are waiting in the wings of my closet for cabinets.

I thought I told you NOT to tell me if it was a great match.

I apologize, but my happiness couldn't be contained. 🥳

I really look forward to your plate amp/DSD experiment. I'm thinking once you get the project sorted out, tubes might just be be a thing of the past for your 604s. 😎

That's why it's good to have two pairs of 604-8G's... I can have the actives and play around with those, and then have some nice passives to hook up to the Fairchilds. I think they will both have their place.
