The AL-80A and B are similar designs using a single 3-500Z. The  
AL-80A is an older, conventional design. The AL-80B is an updated  
design using a sophisticated bias arrangement and more easily mass- 
assembled circuitry.

Both these rigs generate about 600 or more watts out using the single  

The AL-811H uses four 811 tubes in a conventional design. It will  
generate about the same amount of output power.
