Lane, the manual says the plate voltage is 1800 volts no load, 1500
volts full load. I find this to be true.
QSK action is pretty good. I don't know how good because this is the
only amplifier I have ever had with QSK. But I find it very useable.
But, be prepared for the noisiest amplifier you have ever heard. It will
keep the family awake in the middle of the night. They use a 100 CFM fan
to cool 3 811 tubes. My old Yaesu FL-2100B ran the same power, and it
was hard to tell it was on. Of course, it did not run QSK.
The Centaur is a nice, small amplifier, and it does all that is claimed
of it. But wear headsets, or have lots of Tylenol handy.
