Now, as a follow up to my last post I have an interesting tube rolling suggestion based on my lp-3a which has 9 pin sockets. The rear driver is a 6cg7. Up front I run Russian rocket 6h1n-eb tubes. When DH did the upgrade he suggested I try 6cg7s up front. This very much implied to me that the circuit was possibly the same as the lp-3a with octals and 6sn7 all around. So I tried the 6cg7s up front, which I have heard described as a 6sn7 in a smaller bottle. I quickly went back to the Russian rockets. It has been a good while and I do not recall the particulars but I did quickly go back. I also tried a numbers of 6dj8 variants, always ending back with the 6h1n tubes. So here is my suggestion. Those tube rollers with an Octal lp-3a try the 6h1n tubes with a 6cg7 to 6sn7 adapter. Two tubes with adapters maybe$40, so not to much invested. It might be worth an inquiry with Dennis to make sure, but my meager understanding of compatibilities and personal experience says it may be worth while. As always, let us know your actions and results.

Hey All,

For those of you running an Inspire 45 SET amp, I'd be curious to know what rectifier tube your utilizing and with which 45 tubes? What do you hear with your combination that you like?

Thanks,

Tim

Although I don't have a 45 amp, I do have 80s rectifiers.
Philips Miniwatt square pan getter is bananas.

I can't see any on eBay right now tho... but something to look out for. I got a pair for $80.

Any thoughts on 80 vs. 5Z3 rectifiers?

Default Inspire amps Compare to CAD-300sse mono amp

Does anyone know if any of the Inspire amps sound like the CAD-300sse mono amps.
