Very true and that 27 cfm 085 series blower doesnt come close. Even the 56
cfm version drops to around 15 cfm at the 8877 spec. The EBM spec sheets

I use one similar to the G2E108-AA05-44 on my 2M 3CX1000A7 amp. That tube
also has a 1500W dissipation and it requires 33 cfm @ .6". Definitely a
headphone wearing amp! I could probably get away with dropping the speed a
