Default world's heaviest 2A3 amp?

Do I have the world's heaviest stereo 2A3 amp?

The PS weighs 42 lbs, the filament source weighs 35 lbs and the tube section weighs 26 lbs, for a total of 103 lbs. The tube section will gain a bit more if and when I try interstage transformers. That addition may reduce the PS weight. But then again, I may add a bit more to that. There's still a bit of area left.

Do you mind posting the picture of your 2A3? I am just curious how it looks.

I assume that your weight figure is for each mono block, excluding the pre-amp?

Hmmmm what's this in Dunker Factor. 103 lb over output in watts - stereo, so maybe 8 if single ended. That gives about 13. Serious Dunker Factor is about 100!!!
