I don't believe the 5AR4 rectifies the power supply to the 845's. They have bridge rectification, because of the high voltages. My assumption is the 5AR4 rectifies the power to the pre-amp tubes.

Yes, that could very well be the case. Rather difficult to ascertain without a schematic though.

ecclectique;

I'm glad to hear that it probably would work in my amp and yes I do agree whole heartedly that tube rectification has a bearing on the sound. A reason why I chose this amp over others that were SS rectified.

Also that is very kind of you to offer to lend me various rectifier tubes to try for my tube rolling exercise. As my wife would say you are creating great Karma in offering.

If my time allowed I would take you up on your offer, sadly I'm just too busy.

Thank you,
Audiois1st
