I'm looking over all of the ameritron amps and having trouble understanding
something... a quick breakdown reveals the following (from their web site)
AL-80B: 1000 watts,
tube cost $249. $1399 list
AL-572: 1300 watts,
tube cost $60. $1495 list
AL-800: 1250 watts, tube cost $535. $1995 list
Without getting into the "why would anybody pay $3500 for the AL-1200/1500 for
200 watts more?" questions, let me ask...
Why would anybody pay $500 more for the AL-800 than the AL-572 when it has
slightly lower power output and the tubes cost 9 times as much?
.. and why would anybody pay only $100 less for 1000 rather than a 13000 watt
amp when the tubes cost 4 times as much?
I'm sure I'm overlooking something here, but not sure what.
