It also plays well with the Mazda UK made 5R4GY with the double mica, ceramic spacer. All tuned upside down.

    He is loving these 2A3s and the combination with different rectis changes the sound.
    Until they arc over...

    But to be fair I recently had an RCA/Sylvania big bottle arc on me.

    If they arc bad enough it can take out the power trafo and/or PS resistors. I've had both happen... that's the main reason I stick to NOS.
