Default it's cold today

I need something with a lot more glowing tubes on it. My current amp, one big hot 6AS7 isn't enough. I feel the need for a big push-pull, 3 stage, regulator tubes, lots of heat. brrrrrrrr !

Something with big transmitter tubes should keep you warm.

Transcendent Sound Single-Ended OTL

I got this one in one of the systems, only for mid/high as the system is biamplified. It makes the most delicious sound I know with high efficiency speakers, and it can heat your house too...I am affraid to run it in summer, it makes so much heat.

that looks good, but somedays it gets reeeeaaally cold. We need more tubes. Or maybe its solid state - What IS the hottest running amplifier ?

Last night I forgot to unplug my soldering iron so when I awoke this morning the house felt a little warmer.

My GM70 amps contribute significantly to heating my basement listening room - a good thing in winter, and not so great in summer.. During the winter months even with the amps on it can drop below 60 degrees down there, so I have a car seat heater for additional warmth..
