    Hi All, Thinking of building another rack rig. I'll probably be running a few different preamps, my question to y'all is:

    What's the best rackmount power amp that uses el34's?
    Seems like they all use 6l6's, I've never been much a 6l6 guy. Also, I'd like to be pushing at least 50 watts or so. In the past I had good results with a boogie 295 set to the setting where it was only running el34's.

    Appreciate your opinions and experience on this.

    I have (and really like) a VHT 2/50/2 EL34-based power amp. I believe it also accepts 6l6s with a rebias.

    +1 Great power amp used one for several years when I had a rack set-up.
