Re: Optimum B+ for EL84s
I agree with speedracer. I've worked on and modified a bunch of EL-84 amps and the optimum voltage for me is 330 volts running @ about 40-42 ma. per tube in class A. So 320 volts would also be just fine. I spoke with Ken Fisher a couple of years ago and he told me on his Rocket(AC-30) amp he ran his EL-84's @ 315volts and biased them @ 125ma. per pair!(whew)
