They can be found on Ebay for around $100. Pretty typical price for a nice rectifier. It strikes a very wide soundstage and is a bit fuller in the bass. I think it gives up some punch to the Metal base GZ34 but that's about it.
Anyway, this weekend, I rolled-in my TSBGRPs and was pretty unimpressed. These are my favorite drivers in my Woo Audio WA22 by a long way. Weird.

Thanks for the feedback on the rectifier tubes. I will keep my eyes open for a Mullard CV593.

Has the sound smoothed out as the unit has been breaking in?
