    Kind of spooky too. Don't think I'd want to own an amp that killed its owner.

    On a brighter note, how about an amp designed to make removing the transformer easy before shipping?

    Dang, I searched thru the forums for pics of my buddy Dale's old transmitter monster tubes from the KGUN 9 tower station he monitored, totally enclosed in alloy heat sink fins, weighed about 30 lbs each, the pics might still be on TapeHeads forums.

    Anyhoo, cool stuff ya got there. I found this old thread from deep in Phoenix's bowels , great times...Larrt, Lee and the stuwster going at it in classic style, brought a tear to my eye ... What? Huh? Hmmm
