    And you will need to dispose of these as toxic waste due to the mercury vapor
    tubes in the power supply.

    At an estimated (!) 20 wpc, that's only $550 per watt.

    This stuff is just as interesting:

    http://www.mothaudio.com

    (I am reminded of a line from the Movie 'Used Cars'..."It's too fucking high")
    At least this site DOES list prices.

    Correction: Electronluv does list prices on the site...you just have to dig for
    them. I also took a recent gawk at Edgarhorn Vintage Titan Speaker..and this
    site is also interesting (or not, depending on one's point of view):

    Truth being stranger than fact, an amplifier with a single 845
    can sound pretty convincing. I built two channels back in 1994
    and still use that amp for all critical listening.

    And my poor old back being incapable of moving the blasted
    thing is only *part* of the reason why.

    Headphones?

    I note from
    http://www.heartechnologies.com/downloads/ps_Hear_Back_System.pdf that this
    so-called headphone amp puts out up to 1.5 wpc.

    I guess you listen to music about 10dB quieter than a 30W amp. Or,
    you listen at the same volume, and hear music with the transients
    shaved off and lots of 2nd-harmonic distortion "sweetening" the music.

    you drive really effcient speakers. There's a whole group of people into the
    low-watt single-ended triode thing. A lot of them use horns or Lowthers.

    How big would a horn have to be to provide decent bass response?

    The mouth needs to be at least half a wavelength or so. You
    pretty much just can't get there from here.

    OTOH, for nearfield (1 meter) listening distance, a pair of
    3 watt (+5 dBW) amplifiers and a pair of ordinary 89 dB SPL/1W/1M
    speakers make 97 dB SPL peaks. Enough for many uses.

    Still are! And they only got that small by sitting in a corner
    and driving only 1/8 of a solid angle. And by being folded
    twice. And by juggling the rear compression chamber and throat.
    And...

    Discussed here recently:
    http://www.royaldevice.com/custom3.htm
    Looks like a pretty serious effort.

    just coming *up* with these designs, much less building them.

    That would be a great price, if that amps can provide safe-heating for my
    entire residence, when i power it up..
