    I like the look of NAT's 845 mono's but by heavens they're expensive too.

    Those Magma's are $55,000 USD.

    Would have been fun to have heard them cranked up though.

    Do to others as you would have them do to you. (Luke 6:31)

    From that time on Jesus began to preach, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come near.” (Matthew 4:17)

    Isn't that some sorta big RF transmitter triode?

    It's hard enough to design and build good transformers for ten watts of directly-heated triode, so I'm not surprise that's expensive. i wonder how many they'll actually sell.

    Will need shades to listen to that system if it's a transmitter valve.
    A pair of 211 monoblocks does a good turn as a tanning salon :-)
    Sounds the dogs but " Blinded by the Light etc" is most apt.
