Are they going to provide some sort of mounting hardware for the transformers or are you planning to build your own mount?

So, at the current exchange rate, you are paying around $2500 per OT before shipping?

Props, indeed. Midlife, perhaps. Crisis, it certainly would be in my house.

Hope it works.

I fear I would choose the 883 amplifier over a Corvette.
Though my wife would probably not think so highly of me.

They will be potted in a steel can with four mounting holes in the bottom. They will be mounted through the top panel of the Landfall Systems chassis...Landfall assures me the chassis can handle it with no sweat.

Well, you know what they say...the heart of an SET is the output transformer. Why skimp there?

Hell, there are people in this hobby who spend that much on a powercord! I consider this a much more sensible investment.
