There's a good thread on AGon about rolling the tubes and there are a few folks who did the upgrades separately.  I believe most were thrilled with being able to roll the rectifier.
I did mine together so I can only say that I'm very happy.

The tube modification takes this phone preamp to a whole new level in terms of sound quality. It produces a more 3D soundstage w/ a decent TT and cartridge. Vocals and live recordings are incredibly realistic. Well worth the extra coin in my opinion.

Hi My Name is pete i have live in the uk , i have a question to ask as i am new to valves , ,

do you need to have matched and balanced tubes in the PH9,0,
the MM on the ph9.0 only  has a gain switch on the from  from 0 to -6 , or -12,   the MC side has the loading on the left channel , as i use MM and MC ,into this phono stage
