Re: Optimum plate voltage for a SE EL-84 ?
I'm using an RCA 6AV6 (twin diode, high mu triode: amplification factor 100) as the first tube, then a Silvertone labeled 12AX7 for the second stage and cathode follower. I know for certain that the 12AX7 dosen't have any hiss. I'll have to try changing the 6AV6 before I change the EL-84. Other than Sovtek, what brand of EL-84 would you recommend?
