IOW, let your conscience be your guide. They make amps for the world
wide market so you'll see amps we don't normally see over here. I have
one of their smaller ones. It appears well built and will run digital at
the legal limit 24 X 7. They have them all the way up to at least a
4CX5000R7 with a 3 phase power supply.
The newer ones start with a 1KW (forgot the designation), then the
DX-2SP with a single FU728F or 4CDX1500B, the DX-3SP with a pair of
FU728Fs, (desk top units) the DX-4SP with a pair of the Russian tubes
(separate PS), and the DX-5 with that 4CX5000R7 and a BIG 3 phase PS.
They also have a new DX-2SPV 6-meter amp which is the same as the DX-2SP
but for 6-meters only.
Their amps are "manual tune" and well protected. I have no experience
with the larger amps.

Ahhh..Did Rudi tell you that? I talked to him just before Dayton and
they have a US service rep who will do repair and warranty work, but I
think you will find they are still built in Australia. The web site is
still out of date and shows the amps with the Russian tubes.
Command Technologies was bought out by Palstar and redesigned IF that is
the Commander to which you refer.

When I win the lottery and PowerBall I'll get one of each and report
back. IOW, don't hold your breath. <:-))
