ZZ came after my time!
I went on the Bottlehead site. Their most powerful(!) amp in 4WPC and I'm not planning on horn loaded speakers at 100db per watt. Or, I could buy two amps and monoblock for 8WPC. Couple of thou. Yay.
Aww, too bad about the 1050. Built like a tank and excellent ergonomically with a remote that makes sense. Still sounds pretty dang good.
Yeah, had a Jolida 302BRC for several years. Nice sounding but eventually was problematic with this and that anomaly that needed attention.

With triodes, the way to power is lower plate resistance and increase plate dissipation. Failing the first, deliver grid current so a positive grid voltage can be delivered.
Too bad you're not close by, would love to show you a few amps...:)
Friend, I would not hurt thee for the world...but thou art standing where I am about to shoot.
I always thought the 1050 sounded very dang good, one of the more musical CD players ever to be released, which is why I said I wish I could have bought ten of 'em!
Good luck with your SET search, and please keep us apprised of your results.
