Pressed back in to service, the LM219 is wonderful with the new Solo speakers from Consonance. A truly wonderful match. As I keep telling you, there's an amp out there that's going to make your speaker sing, and usually only a good dealer can help you find it. The hunt and peck method that many of you choose is generally a sure way to lose money.
and on the opposite end of the LM spectrum the LM211- El34 based- also works amazingly well with the Solos. So there you have it, the Haven tip of the day...
having a little Saturday fun here, using KT66's instead of El34's. Just be sure to bias the amp after tube swapping...the KT66 runs much hotter, and have to be turned down. Easy to do. The toggle switch on the lower corner of each side controls the left two and right two output tubes. Toggle back and forth and watch your yellow meter. You'll want to be right in the marked spot for optimum bias. The two holes to the left and right of each set of output tubes are where you place a flatheaded screwdriver in to set bias. Very easy, even I can do it. The Line Magnetic 211 is a wonderful amp musically, and also easy for first timers to tube amps.
