    Could you imagine a big Carver Silver Seven built around 10 of these? If these can comfortably put out 85 watts each, that should be an unbelievable high current amp room warming space heater....

    A pair of them would be pretty sexy

    That would be 1500 watts of tube power, but the specs say they can do 300/pair.

    Others have said they are powerful but not as musical as the 120s and 150s.
