Toby Keith - a great American and talent.  He was 62.

He was a principal on K&K Audio and a brilliant designer.

Sometimes people do not receive their accolades due. 😣

He is and greatly will be missed.  Godspeed. 🙏🏼

Had contact with him many years ago when I bought the VAC 90 mono amps. Was very pleasant to deal with

I had not heard this.  I had the opportunity to buy one of his designs last year...
It's now in my smaller room system. It splits time with a Dodd amp and a Folsom amp.

It should have a potential to output up to 120 wpc, but it coasts along putting out about 30.   Not sure why they made that choice.   Tubes should last longer than I do.

They are operating in their most linear manner.  It ain't always about power, it's often about finesse.

Scott,

What is that central tower looking thing in the center? It appears <to me> to be some sort of radiator to dispel heat.
