ooopps you are correct sir!!! (sound of hand smacking forehead) i wan't looking at the whole picture...

forgot about that whole voltage divider thing going on with parafeed... so while the tube would be putting out full power,
the output trannie would only see 1/2 of that power and the rest would go through the power supply...

who cares about the tube putting out max undistorted power when 1/2 of that is tossed out the window???

in this case i suppose max "useable audio" power would be from an infinate plate load and an output trannie that presents 2X the Rp...

thanks for the correction.
