Wanted Matched Pair PCC189 Tubes

Have a new schematic supplied by my Phonostages Designer.
It will allow for the use of 2 X PCC189 Tubes.
If there is a matched pair available to offer, I will consider them.

Re: Reported as Rare Fane Crescendo Drivers

Nice one Steve, the voice of experience has dispelled the mystery.
I am casually looking for the 20 Gauss ones as a pair, to put with the 18XB's.

Re: What Are You Listening To Right This Minute?

Thanks for the tip
I've just started to look at buying in a few vinyl lp's from Joan A.
I see there is a live CD only recording at the Royal Albert Hall.
Should be one I go for as well.
