    Sorry I missed the last part both recti are good but if you can borrow a tak recti do so. It’s more refined in details and is better in some setups but not all. I also own a few nos we 274b and nos we 300b as well.
    To me only the pacific plays 300b tubes well. The others show bloat and uneven sound

    Interestingly bloat and unevenness was exactly how my Psvane UK 300B's sounded with the Tak recti - they sounded pretty dreadful, really closed in and rolled off at both ends - as soon as I swapped the Tak out for the Zaerix 5R4GY that Norman recommended to me, it was like the 300B's were completely different tubes. I was really surprised as the improvement the Tak brought to the 242's over the EML 5U4G was immediately obvious, so I had automatically assumed it would translate to the 300B's.

    I think there definitely has to be a certain synergy between the recti and the main output tubes to get the best out of the latter.

    Anyone ever tried WE 422A rectifiers?

    Anyone tried EML PX4 Mesh or EML 300B Mesh?

    Also, looking at the internal construction of the EML 45 Mesh, I can't see any difference between that and the 6th Anniversary 45 Mesh apart from the top of tube supports, base and printing. Really there is none, or at least nothing you can see. Anyone got both and if so can they confirm if they sound the same?

    As my fav tubes are loaned out I have been trying many tubes to get the sound of my favs
    Now I am playing a new nos pair rca 2A3 tiny tubes compared to the eml mesh giants
    Not bad but a little strident on piano with the cheap recti so I rolled the kron 5u4g much better it took the top off a bit and added some weight
    I still have dynamics and shimmer but a better tone on paino.
    If anyone asks me why a Lampi as I have owned a bunch of DACs including a 40k msb it’s for the tube rolling
    Sonics matter to each of us in many way ways. A Lampi can have so many faces each being magical
    Some get stuck on the fact we need to try some tubes to hit perfection. It if one thinks it’s cheap and tubes can always be sold
    Read others thoughts on tube rolling some where in one is your sound to get.

    I made a comment about recti being not as important on the pacific I would like to add some clarity to it
    It matters plenty but not as like other Lampi DACs
    It still makes or breaks a tube set and bad ones are still bad.
    But on a pacific the dac is so refined it shows good in all we use in it
    I hope this makes sense to you guys.

    45 mesh globe sounds better than regular eml 45 mesh. Eml 300b mesh is nothing to write home about. Slow and mechanical. Psvane uk design beats it and psvane WE replica 300b is again better.
