Default zapco proto home amp on epay

170408399142 - pretty interesting. It's hard to get an idea of how big it is though.

Not very big. Built on a Spectral chassis, so standard width or close. Maybe 3-1/2 inches tall. I wish I had what they pulled out of the chassis!

It may make a few watts in class A, but not close to 250W/ch. It was easy to one-off a home amp from 151's since the amp and supply boards were seperate, but I question why they didn't use a newer design in 1996.

It doesn't look quite polished enough to be officially Zapco's work if you ask me. Maybe an employee who was allowed to play with some leftover parts and their shop?

So it is as small as I thought it was. And he hasn't sold anything else in a very long time.
