Hey Steve,

I have no idea what this amp is, but it looks so cool, how about naming it "Zenfinity"?

How many watts per channel are you shooting for?  What price range are you going for?

If the 1st watt
sucks why continue?

Watts could be more than a TORII Mk III and less than the TORII Mono's.  Price somewhere between the two.

At the rate I'm going, Zenfinity is the time it's going to take to finish it!  I'm after a very specific signature and character with this amp.. and of course at my age achieving this goal with the least number of rebuilds possible turns out to be the real goal!

Steve,
What ever happened to your OTL amp you were planning on bringing to market?  Did that die a quick death for some reason?  Bob Zeigler told me it was the best sounding amp he's ever heard...

It's still here...  seven power supplies feeding upto 500 milliamps per tube makes the power consumption and heat equal to ten Torii Mk III's.  It's enough BTU to heat a good size room in the dead of winter.  It's dangerous, tubes are no longer made, impractical - as most really great stuff is... it would just cost too much to make it safe enough to market... in MY market that is.   If you don't mind spending what other manufacturers are charging for the same 6C33C output tube based OTL amplifiers I could perhaps try to custom build a few.

OMFG!!! Wow, what a beaut!  Thanks for posting that centerfold of a shot!  Bob wasn't kidding!  So you get about 60 watts per channel out of that?  Bet that is one of your best sounding amps ever!  How would you characterize the sonic differences between your OTL and your new Tori Monos?  The new Monos put out 60 watts per channel, too so in that regard they are both similar.

Steve,
What's that bubble of glass around the right rear output tube for?  Does it serve any purpose?  Interesting...

Isn't that a line from "Young Frankenstein?"
