I've used a pair of Photo 6v (they're half the size of an AA, so you can
pack 12 volts into the holder!) and got somewhat elevated level and
improved S/N (then again, the batteries are expensive, so the placebo
effect might have been in operation too).

But I once read somewhere that an overall rewiring job has an even bigger
impact on improving the S/N and overall fidelity. Sorry I don't have a URL.
