Umm...warm and comfortable, but not smokin'. Maybe the lower edge of the plates go from red towards white. I run the amp at spec, but I don't beat the pants off of it. 1.5k+- a few Po on my Wavenode wattmeter.

Didn't know it at the time of ordering, was pleasantly surprised when I opened the box the xfrmr arrived in was a Peter Dahl.
