Thanks for the reply Ken. I remember reading an earlier post of yours where you described an amp of yours that ran KT90's in UL or triode; I guess it was switchable. Which mode do you prefer? Is there much of a volume difference between the two modes? How about any differences in bass response? If I was not going to make it switchable between triode and UL, would using a screen grid resistor smaller than 1K sound better? It seems like I normally see a 100-ohm resistor for this application, although the new Marshall's use a 2.2K. Thanks in advance for your help in this matter (and in previous postings)!
