    Strange in that they're... cylindrical. I don't think I've ever seen cylindrical amps.

    Double as a forced air space heater?
    Oh, Listen here mister. We got no way of understandin' this world. But we got as much sense of this bird flyin in the sky. Now there is a lot that bird don't know, but it don't change the fact that the world is happening to him all the same. What I am tryin to say is, is that the course of your life, well its changing, and you don't even see it- Forest Bondurant

    The real Mark Levinson, way back when, made a high-powered Class A monoblock that looked like a space heater... and heated like one, too. Sounded darned good, though.

    There was a fellow in central MA who had a pair of 'em driving Pipe Dreams. About as diametrically opposed philosophically to my approach to hifi as can be imagined -- but it was a fine sounding system indeed.

    Made for tight spaces to go behind/next to the speakers. They also have a fan at the top to cool.
