    Did so, and get 38W at 1Khz on left. Outputs are not the right exact kind, 5881WXT. 39.11W at the right. YAYYYYYY

    Gonna get the rest of those films in and get her on my antique chest pushin' some Klipsch Heresy IIs (Crites upgrades of course). Still need the MX110 repaired, but that's for Wednesday.

    Order two pairs of matched 6L6GC for it and ensure the tubes upstream are acceptable.

    Congratulations. Now, take those 5881's out of there and put in a proper set of 6L6GC's. The TS 6L6GC STR black plates are a nice new issue tube.
