Hi Greg, I bought my Mullard 5V4/GZ32 from Upscale Audio about a year ago and it was $35 at the time. They are now listing it for $60! Ouch... But it sure is a sweet sounding tube...

I wonder what the rationale for that sort of a price increase is.  Is greed a possible motivation?   Kiss

Mullard GZ32s are fast becoming as costly as Mullard GZ34s.   Angry  Since the RCA 5V4G is nearly as good as the Mullard GZ32, that's the variety I'd be trying to obtain.

The Mullard GZ32's I have are marked CV593 instead of "GZ32" which is a military number, but they're supposedly identical. If they can be found perhaps they can be had for somewhat less?
