<Your comment about saving a few bucks in a $7K amplifier is on target.

<Victor, 4X6GP

##  $7K  US funds  translates into one helluva lot more in any country outside 
the USA. 
Just checked, its  $9800.00  here in Canada....+  tax,  + shipping.   Thats  a 
lotta money  for no qsk,
no pin  diodes,  or  vac relays..and no schematics. 

##  That german made  B-26, 1.5 kw output  SS  amp,  160-6M,  with the pair of 
BLF-189 XRAs is the better deal, 72%  eff,
runs cool... but still has no real qsk...20 msecs.  But at least vac  relays 
could be retrofitted into the SS amp. 
The german amp is  $3450.00  US funds, including  built in 2 kw auto tuner, and 
your choice of 13 or  16 db,
both 100 watt  CCS rated input  attenuator, and also shipping.    You could 
easily buy  TWO of the B-26s
for what one  PGXL  cost.
