Just Call Me Junior
Hi Bill,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.
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!
