I have never seen this tube before. Each channel has an input transformer feeding an interstage transformer directly coupled to the 20B. No driver tube. Apparantly, Tron Electric uses a similar typology in its Voyager amp. I'm sure neither the Tube Lab or the Tron version is cheap. The former uses all EML tubes (both the power tube and the rectifier) + Hashimoto interstage and output transformer and Lundahl input transformers and n one of that is low cost.
Anyone ever build/hear such an amp?
