Those Altec's look kinda like a pair a guy sold me in the early 80's, Not in big boxes like yours though. They came out of the Long Beach municipal auditorium when they were tearing it down, The date on the inside of the box says 1955. They also have some sort of metal box inside them with a bunch of wires coming out of it lol. We tried to blow them out years ago but no luck, still sitting in the garage. You guys make me fell like digging them out and putting the stereo back together. :shock:

No doubt about that -but with the CNC machine and a hot tub running anyway, the amp was barely noticed.

I am using 6021's for preamp and inverter, 6bg6's for drivers with fet followers, and Amprex 4-250's for power in the video.

I have moved to Penta Labs 4-400's after the video was done which has increased the power to around 1kw. Jim

I used some Penta KT88s in a set of big parallel push pull monobloc amps I had. Penta relabel some great tubes.

The Penta 4-400s I am using are NOS from the 60's. They are made in the USA but I'm not sure who made them. I know they are the same as the RCA tube from the same time.
They sure are pretty though.

The only way to really tell with tubes is by the plate construction. Labels get washed off and relabled as whatever the reseller wants to say they are. Penta is reputable, and the pleated plates look like some I saw with US consistent etchings on the glass.

Amazing stuff for sure but I just stream you tube music on throw away headphones.
...cost effective and I cannot tell the difference anyway.

I burn the money on the bikes instead!
