RE: Comments for Acoustic Research 3a

Probably a pain in the ass but a great solution would be the Melos amps available as about 200 watts triode in a stereo amp and 400 watts triode as mono blocks and both super conservatively rated. The problems are finding them after years out of production and the need for a good tech who can follow the circuitry if you need work. But the power id there and it has a high damping factor for a tube amp of 20 for better control of the AR3a bass.

Another possibility if you can find one is an Audionics BA150, an old triode amp rated at 150 watts but I know it really puts out over 200 watts. And it's possible that the designer, David Berning, who has his own company can still work on it.
