Carl is correct about the tube in the AL-1200 being idiot proof, but
the 91B as a whole is idiot proof, too.  It has more fault sensors
than you can shake a stick at and believe me if you mess up, it will
shut off in the blink of an eye.  Mess up with the AL-1200 and it just
sits there and groans till something gives.

I've owned them both and I like the 91B.  I figure when you're
spending that much money, don't sweat a couple hundred bucks one way
or the other.  Get the best, you won't be sorry.
