    ...

    Looks like 12 push-pull pairs of EL84s, maybe?
    So -- you're lookin' at 12 to 15 watts per channel.
    Might limit loudspeaker choices for HT a wee bit... fortunately, there are options.

    Kinda like @mhardy6647 thought he had a cardiac event looking at the sausage/cheese/brisket or whatever burger, I’d wonder if I was getting too much electricity exposure being around that. 😳

    Thanks Tom. Not much there really...9000 watts RMS...sound check video with an EQ and something else hooked up. Kind of gives the impression of pro gear use. Impressive looking none the less.
