Hi peckjed,One day I'm going to jump in and get something that uses those magical 300B tubes. Just haven't done it yet but I'm an old retired fart and running out of time. So what in hell are you using that requires FOUR of these boogers???Thanks,Gene
Hi Jeff,That's impressive. Dennis makes good stuff. Recently I saw he has a nice looking 8W 300B amp on eBay. Very tempting. I exchanged some emails with him recently and found out he's just a bit older than me!Gene
8 years ago I had Black Treasure 300Bs and enjoyed them. They sounded MUCH better than the Sophia and EH I tried. Since then Gold Lion PX300B came out, and I have been very happy with other GL tubes, so I would probably try those GL first. This review says they are both good, but a tube is only one part of the amp circuit so they sound different in every amp - don't trust tube reviews too much. But Gold Lion and Black Treasure reviews have been consistently great over a long period, lots of AC people have god comments about them, and my experience with both brands has been excellent. ymmv. Ideally you can find advice from someone using the same amps as yours.
Dennis is a great guy. I've purchased from him a few times. I had him install hum pots on this 300B that made a world of difference. I'd jump on that 8W 300B if you've got friendly speakers (just make sure to ask for a hum pot)!
Could someone please PM me with contact information for Dennis Had?Thanks!

Matched pair for $1500... Sure makes me glad I got out of the 300B amp game. In fact, looking around at NOS prices for 6922, EL34, 6SN7, etc, I am glad there are very viable non-tube alternatives out there these days
