Single Ended Triodes (SETs), the ultimate tube lovers dream.

RE: xaudiomanx.

Not much to say about that. It is what it is! All I can say is good luck. I did hear two pair and I was not all that thrilled for what has to be spent to get them although in general they are good. But not at that cost. I am quite satisfied with my much less expensive but really good sounding equipment. I am in a position to buy them, thank you! But again! Why? Nothing! And I mean nothing! Is there to justify $18,500. Even if it was built by another who would get paid. I'm sorry! I am a businessman in the labor trade so I do know costs as well as anyone. Even Trump!I know American(which I prefer when I can) as compared to outside the U.S. and even all American parts and labor doesn't warrant those numbers. God bless anyone who wants to spend that and can.

I would love to see your cost sheet to build a set of them. The labor doesn't matter. Unless you are getting ripped off(which I doubt) the total cost parts only on a high end for each amp might be $1K. So two of them is double that. Labor another grand each and that's a huge amount of labor. So about $13K profit at selling them for $18,500? Not in my lifetime!
