three of the bulbs didn't make it through shipping. internally the filaments broke from the vibration so i have found a source for the same brand and model of bulbs and will have to order some plus spares before i can fire them up. but stay tuned!

Thanks N.P!! I dug out my issue of AA and re-read the article on the Zen Lites and noticed your mention of the 3 bulb amps and Mc-master-Carr as the source for the bulbs. But looking online i see they don't handle Phillips brand bulbs, and this came with 12x Phillips brand 300 watt bulbs. and rather then change them all out so they match (yes im picky like that) I found a place here locally that can get me the matching Phillips brand bulbs. But i will give Mcmaster a call and inquire.

If i understand it correctly. Each one of these is stereo? when used with the Unbalanced RCA inputs? if so i can maybe at least fire one up for a bit while i am waiting for the bulbs for the other channel to arrive.

Bulbs? Can someone please enlighten me on the use of light bulbs in an amp? I did a quick google search and didn't come up with much.

I played some wav files off the ipod and I am very impressed. pretty good power. enough to fill the room to good volume, good bass. YEAH! running these balanced is going to be SWEET!
