  1. Sorry to hear about your wife Craig. Just hearing about this from another member as im not on here much anymore. Prayers to you, your wife and family.
  2. Not the same amp, but i get it. I have the Willsenton 300b. It would be nice to have a high end $7000 amp to compare. This thing sounds very nice across the CornScala. Using GL 300b, Sophia Electric 274b with NOS 6sl7 and 6sn7gt pre's.
  3. I had planned on buying one to try, other expenses prevented that from happening. The Spirit V is the amp i wanted. I bought a Willsenton 300b amp to hotrod and still having fun with that. The Primeluna 400 and the spirit v looked to be nice options. Im now looking at Ayons 300b. It does take alot of power to drive Klipch speakers. My CornScala only uses 1/2 watt to drive to 85db levels. Just learned that.
  4. Thanks for the reply. I could not get myself to spend that kind of money on an amp, so i decided to purchase a 300b Willsenton. Been doing some modding/hotrodding to it with a change in the power supply, changed out some caps for better Mundorf's and now thinking about new OPT, maybe Hashimotos. For a 1500 dollar 300b, it sounds very nice. I really enjoy the tinkering with these tube amps.
  5. I have been reading up on the Sophia Electrics. Sounds promising and not too expensive.
  6. I have not listened to the WE300b, but from the reviews i have read, the WE is really nice in the mid. That seems to be its sweet spot. You may or may not like the top or bottom. There are some out there that do not like them.
  7. Everything i have read on rectifiers is the 274 is THE tube for rectification.
  8. I currently have the 274 Linlai in it. These are the inexpensive ones as well and they sound better than the originals and i have low hours on them at this point. Not sure of the burn in, but i hear 100hrs.
  9. If your speakers have horns, you will hear a difference good or not as good. I think the original 300 tubes suck. GL's are definitely better. The original rectifier tubes suck as well. Every rectifier tube i have tried is better than the original. The original 6SL7 is quite good. I have a tung-sol 6AU7 with gold pins in it now and cant tell much if any difference.
  10. A nice custom Cary will set you back $4000. Dennis Hadd is the man.
  11. No, this is the only 300b amp i have had in my system. My other amp is a EL34 amp with KT77's in it. It has been a great amp as well, does everything well. Low bass, mid bass and highs are very clean and life like. The 300b separates the instruments better and brings the vocals forward. Very nice. The tube changes have added just a touch more of realism. They just seem to clean things up a bit more with every tube charge and it was very good when i started.
