As post #1 say this amp have big transformers as was usual in the hey days, current crop of tube amps have the most anemic transformers in audio history to increase profits.

To set the record straight on this incredible amplifier, it was designed by my late friend Aaron Newman who took over as chief engineer of Lafayette when Hegeman severed ties with the company.  Aaron was Hegeman’s protege.  It is very sad that Hegeman has been associated with this unit as well as the equally incredible KT-600 preamp.
