I'm glad to learn that ! thanks a lot !
I love my Manley gear A LOT !
Thought once about selling the 300B preamp but forgot the idea very fast.
Will never let them go.
To my ears, the 300B / Snappers combo makes more music than my former McIntosh C1000 / 2301 combo.
This says how much I love them !

Cool !
Can you tell me what tubes you're using on your 300 B Neo Classic ?
It seems that you changed the 300B and the drivers.

Thanks :-)

Jerome W: I have changed every tube on every unit. On the 300B preamp I use:

300B Golden Dragon Mesh Plate (I really like them: I use them also on the 300B SE/PP. They have a signature of transparent, dynamic and modern tube sound. Yet, they are still 300B with all the midrange magic and bloom we crave)

6SL7 NOS Brimar (I use them also on the 300B SE/PP. I have not yet compared them systematically with the others I have tried, but they seem to give a little more of the organic bloomy "butterly" sound but still not being slow.)

5AR4 Golden Dragon

OD3 NOS RCA

I would love to test some 300B EML Mesh Plate and 300B Takatsuki. What are your experience with tubes on the preamp Jerome?
