   Doug the Speakers are 102db. Will listen to the 45 supplied Sylvania and GE. Then will play around. with 6SN7 or Emission Labs 45 and Hitachi 6SN7.

  Thanks, me as well. Eaton gave me a price of 3K for His 300B Mono Blocks if the 45 does not work out.

if you buy direct from eaton, you may want to consider his 45 or 2a3 monoblocks.

   Thanks bought 45 amp. Want to compare to a Tektron now. Which can use 45, 2A3 and 300B with flipping a switch. However this over achieving Eaton 45 design is so F'n good it just may be tube types now.

i know, charlie; i was just suggesting 45 or 2a3 mono blocks from eaton instead of 300b's, if you decide on checking something else out.  iirc, i suggested the eaton amps to you...  ;)

glad it's working out!  :thumb:

   Thank you Sir. Now looking for RCAs Ballon 45s. Found a pair at $600 NOS. With that price maybe EML 45

before you spend a lot on globe tubes, you may want to check out something like these:
https://www.ebay.com/itm/184370863836
https://www.ebay.com/itm/312772567694
https://www.ebay.com/itm/254722156896
https://www.ebay.com/itm/184452135825
https://www.ebay.com/itm/143609013121
https://www.ebay.com/itm/184424170455

if you have to have the globes, you could try these:
https://www.ebay.com/itm/114408339185

these may sell for a bit under $600; hard to say...
https://www.ebay.com/itm/164384287695

also, in looking at these, i checked out the eml's.  many folks prefer them over the vintage rca's.  and there's some difference between mesh plate and solid plate.  but, based on one reviewer's comments, (srajan ebaen), since you're using the 45 amp w/ a speaker that has powered subs, you might prefer the mesh plates?  even tho srajan said he liked the solid plates better.

wait, wait, there's more!  ;)

https://www.head-fi.org/threads/fs-eml-solid-plate-45-tubes.942592/
https://www.ebay.com/itm/203107991329

as the ebay tubes are already >$320 shipped, w/8 days left, i'd think the head-fi tubes are the better deal...
