Very cool, thanks mobileusa.  Still, not a "daily driver" that's for sure.  Notice the links to related videos and a guy has two of them running in stereo, must live north of the Arctic circle!

High power transmission tubes are awesome, and implemented correctly they sound terrific, but they need a real he-man front end  to drive them and Herculean power supply to run them.

I've seen this before. 'Tis nice!

Modern-day version:

A matched quad of 572B's running at 2100 volts.  :drool:

Sweep tubes should do the trick.

Wow.... That's one of the most awesome and terrifying at the same time amp displays ever. Love the dancing rectifiers. I need those in an amp! Like the music partnering with this video

I think that is uber cool in some ways and yet exceedingly ridiculous in others.  Still love all the blue mercury rectifiers all lit up and the very cool construction and huge iron this employs.   I imagine this is class A/B.

But if you really need this much power you need new speakers IMO.
