What do your meters normally read?

What mA do you expect with a 6P15P-EB?

How do these meters work? Does the input tube affect the output?

Thanks, I saw a picture somewhere with the meters over 40. Mine are 36 with the stock tubes too.

The mA reading on a UFO2 with 6N1P-EB tubes range from 20~40, the majority landing around 24 mA.  It depends on the tubes themselves.  Interestingly, with this tube, there does not seem to be a real difference in sound or power output between one that reads 20 vs. one that reads 30, so the more important reading is that of similarity.  Whatever one tube reads, ideally the other should also read.  If they are different beyond 5 mA there is usually a channel imbalance.
