Before and after samples of speaker swap?

Has anyone done a speaker swap in their HT-5 and have sound samples of the before and after? I am considering updating mine, but only if there is a marked improvement that I can hear.

I already swapped the preamp tube for a Tung-Sol.

Just do it.

If you must have samples, poke around soundcloud.

Sorry I didn't do any formal a/b but I have a few before and a few after the switch.

WGS ET65 is a great choice.

The stock speaker has too much of a mid-focus in my opinion. It gets really loud-sounding without much effort, at the expense of sweetness.
