Best interconnect burn-in method
VOLTAGES are stored in a dielectric, and released over time, in any component/cable with measurable, "capacitance".     There's no, "pseudo" anything involved in that fact.   The complex musical signals, listened to via our cables, can be smeared ... 
Best interconnect burn-in method
A repeat, for those that desire not to remain willfully ignorant of the SCIENCE, regarding dielectrics and cable construction: (http://www.empiricalaudio.com/computer-audio/technical-papers/dielectric-absorption-dissipation-fact...) Further, by th... 
Dahlquist DQ-1LP crossover owners
Got it now.  Kinda like a Bose 901 EQ does(at both ends of the spectrum), but- not at as high an order.   Then again: I've seen Tympani Bass panels, used with different mains(ie: QRS) and a DQ-LP1, with great results.   WHEW(that's been a few deca... 
Dahlquist DQ-1LP crossover owners
I used a modded DQ-LP1 for better than two decades and wish I hadn’t sold it. I’m not certain if a 5dB boost at 20Hz is enough for what you need, but the DQ-LP1 does offer that, via it’s EQ setting. Mentioned under, "controls and adjustments" on p... 
Mills MRA two types of different brand ?
Vishay bought Mills in 2011 and they have been making them ever since, in brown. There were four, color/finish versions of the older, made in the USA, Mills wire wounds: Dull(flat) in either black or brown / shiny and smooth in either black or brown. 
phase linear amplifiers
Those of us that repaired them, loved Phlame Linears(they kept us busy). 
Mills MRA two types of different brand ?
Some vendors still have a supply of NOS, USA made Mills resistors.  Vishay bought the company, in 2011, and moved production to Mexico.

VT4-B Westinghouse
No clue here either. I’ve never seen one with a yellow top.   Perhaps these guys can answer that: (https://www.vacuumtubesinc.com/2016bid.pdf) 
VT4-B Westinghouse
That's a military designation for the 211 tube,  more commonly seen as VT4A or C .    Value would depend on overall condition and test measurements. 
Synergistic Red Fuse ...
Fascination found by fuse fanciers, followed by the ubiquitous fractious, foisting their fractured, "facts." A pause, to proffer preferred recorded programs, and a descension into an alliteration altercation. Pity the poor audio pupil, trying to t...

Converting Solid State to Tube Rectification on a Preamp
If you haven’t already, try some ultrafast/soft recovery HEXFREDs first. Much simpler, and may satisfy your desire for improved sound. ie: (http://www.partsconnexion.com/rectifier_diode_fred.html) &(http://www.partsconnexion.com/rectifier_brid...

Amperex 6SN7GTB
The only Amperex 6SN7GTBs that I’ve seen, had bottom getters(on one side/from Europe). Apparently, there are other iterations out there though, per these pics. No info though(sorry): https://www.google.com/search?q=amperex+6sn7gtb&tbm=isch&...
