Hi Doug,

Interesting indeed. Thought of a similar design many times, even for headphones. Would be all tube, but never got around to it. Most likely has SS input/gain, unless the gain stage tube is internal.

cheers

i dunno - 3wpc from this - 2 tubes/channel seems awfully low, even set/otl - these are monster tubes...
