Thanks for your message! I enjoyed reading it.
I definitively think these amps qualify for "They don't make
'em like they (we) used to." I spent quite some time
tracking this set down, piece by piece, for that reason.
I'm giving mine up for much the same reason you gave up
yours: a move. I haven't set up or touched the equipment
since moving into a much smaller space. And I find myself
leaning ever more toward mobility. If I were going to nest,
these are the amplifiers I'd want in my nest. But packing
light and old iron don't exactly mix. So it goes.
I still have the rectifier tube for the power amp.
