so many choices i don't know which way too go!! this is my first build basically its a jtm45 with exceptions i've talked too mercury, marstran, heyboer, but i havn't talked too oei. my deal is i have no interest in cloning exactly. i want a nice amp that has a great response all the way through the volume. i wat too run a gz34 (like jtm45) but i want too use el34's instead of kt66's am i getting too involved in the tranny myth? i mean my wants are not that demanding i just really like the response and dynamics of my other amps (komet 60 and matchless dc-30) and i would like too have just as good of quality iron as those (not the same) but just as good! the cool thing about the mm is they have a power tranny that would deliver 360 volts too the plates with tube rectification! which i assume would allow me some lower headroom but on the other side of that i hope that 360 would give the el34s enough juice too work the magic!! remember this is my first build so if i said something that doesn't make sense, please take it easy on me. just correct me in a proper manner or i'll slap your dog in da tooth!!
