There was anither thread about this Philip's amp i'd seen on here before. It is a sweet looking room heater and those mercury tubes... No matter what though, my wife won't let me have one.

My mercury tubes are way bigger....

This amp was an inspiration to try and beat it. All my latest MV experiments were inspired by the youtube video.

2.5A flowing through a 90/100kW MV rectifier. The only reason I pursued this epxeriment (for my amp build) is because the video on the internet inspired me. The glow captured me and so I decided I wuold implement the rectifiers in my build

That scares me a lot........ almost as much as when my uncle Dave took me on site at Bawdsey Manor to look at Bloodhound missiles and their radar/computers.
