just finished retubing with tested as nearly new and matched!! Toob compliment is Telefunken 12AU7, Sylvania branded Baldwin 6SN7GTB, Fivre 5V4G and GEC smoked glass KT66!

Both amps sound marvelous and nearly 99.94% dead quiet especially for being near 60 years old!! 8)

Any pics of the inside?
I bet they do sound nice.

Beautiful amps!
GEC smoked glass KT66 are one of the best output tubes ever made.
Enjoy!

I had only ever seen pics of pa 100's by themselves before and never in person. I was somewhat shocked at how large and heavy they actually were when the pair I recently purchased arrived. I have a pair of pa 300's, but they look like little peanuts beside these beasts. Mine are currently awaiting the finishing touches at my techs', but he can't stop raving about their sound. I am beginning to see why you have been vocal about yours. We were joking that with so very few of these around, not many people get the opportunity to hear them.

Bolly , thanks for the pic of the internals.
I'm constantly amazed at how few compontents inside a tube amp are needed to produce good sound.
But then again, there's a lot on the top side that's required.

Them gorgeous stands really highlight financial priority and well the actual size of units but are they the ones that fit lp's or not? 8)
