/\ Low Rp parasitic oscillation suppressors apparently work. The Alpha
86 & 87 does not use such suppressors. Around 40% of the 80-series Alpha
owners I surveyed reported sudden failures that required factory repair.
When Alpha founder Mr. Dick Ehrhorn was active on AMPS, he said that he
had seen hundreds of tubes with gold-sputtering damage.
