    I will check, but it should be part of the standard configuration.
    Indeed it now is on GG2, not GG1. S-Amanero is like 3 weeks old at most.

    Thanks. I’ll check the price of RK recti. I guess it should be similar to the Takatsuki one.

    It's much cheaper. Khonfused too had both the older KR and the Tak, and he too said while there were differences his preferences weren't strong either way.

    Hence my point. Output valves make much more difference, including in Al's system. He has many rectis and many output valves but I can't afford all that so I will have to make choice.

    No, its barely more than the KR5u4g and less than half the cost of the Tak.

    Al has 'em all, except new RKs. LoL

    Recti pecking order for most tubes in his system is:
    WE274b/Tak 274b
    KR5u4g
    Mazda 5r4gy
    all the rest

    For his EML mesh 2a3:
    Shuaguang 274b
    Mazda/WE
    Tak
    all the rest.

    Putting in the EML mesh 2a3 and the PX25 makes a bigger difference in his system than changing from the KR to Tak to Westinghouse. There might be a pecking order, but they all are fine

    Agreed. He had to listen hard to make a distinction. However, my point was more about DHT to recti synergy.

    Today I received my new Lampizator Golden Gate Gen II in single ended, Volume version.
    As I like 300b tubes, I start with Psvane 300b black treasury out of my tube stock, the recti is a Kron 5u4g, Lampi edition.
    Other tubes will be checked soon, after my final speakers are installed (hORNS Universum are on the way)

    My GGII SET (built date 12.2017) is fitted with the small Triode heater tubes. I decided for the new Volume/Pre option, as my Koda Preamp has no remote.
    Listening to digital let me skip very often, so I need a remote, many CDs have different levels, so I need to adjust the Volume too often ....

    my first impression is very good, unfortunately my GGI is sold since a time, so I have no direct comparison.

    here are some pictures:

    Wow GG2 and horns universum. What are you driving them with?

    You have to be careful of the gain here else the Lampi can overdrive. On the universums some valves sound right some bright
