Thank you Alfred,

One must be careful in considering replacement tubes.

In particular tye GZ34 has a lower heater current than many others of a similar HT rating.  It may be OK for that amplifier but not for all!

The attached pdf gives a brief overview, but other factors such as series resistance and capacitor loading must also be considered.


Best regards,Roy
