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?

I just put a CV593 / GZ32 I bought off Kevin @ Upscale years ago for my little 2watt Zen in my Rachael and holy cow, what a big difference over the 274's that Steve is shipping in the units now. I used the 274 for about a year and bought a cryo'ed version off of Ron @ Cryoset but this GZ32 is really, really nice so far. Happy listening, Chris.

Hi Chris,
In my Rachel in my computer room system, I'm running a Sophia Electric 274B in the rectifier position. In the power I'm running 1960's RCA 6L6GC Black Plates and Zaerix ECC88/6DJ8's.

Love the sounding I'm getting currently. This is the system I just added a Rega RP6 and Nova II phono pre, running a Dynavector 20X2H.
