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

I hope you picked up on the ZZ Top reference

I didn't really think you lived in a shack outside La Grange.

Sadly my JVC 1050 died some years ago. I put it away, figuring I'd look inside it someday for any obvious problems. I guess in the meantime I should remove it from my equipment profile. Good to hear that your 1010 and 1050 are still working for you. I was happy with my 1050, and wish I could have afforded to buy ten of them back in 1992.

I'm not in love with Bottlehead looks either. But I'd rather go with an amp of known quality (especially where output transformers are concerned) and plenty of support like the Bottlehead, rather than a sleek looking Chinese amp with (you know what's coming) Chinese wound outputs. Form follows function, and all that.

And as I mentioned in my other post, if the Bottlehead didn't suit me, I'm going to assume it would be a lot easier to sell on the used market.

Good luck with finding what you're after, and stay cool down in La Grange.
