Hi Bob

I guess it is all how you look at things.

I have a SB-200 and like it very much.  Gives me 500-600 watts out full 
bore.  No problems tuning on any band.  Dunno what else I could ask of an 
amp.  Think I paid $275 for it.  If the tubes go bad, I can replace them for 
$150 compared to $500 to $1000 a pop for big tubes.

Guess an Alpha Super Duper 1001 would give me more power, autotune, but more 
power I don't need and takes me about 3 seconds to tune the amp.   I like 
running around 500 watts-keeps the neighbors and the wifey happy.  So, all I 
need is a SB-200 to keep me smiling!!   To each his own I guess--that's the 
great thing about ham radio.  73
