    While I be damm look what Mr. Grumpy found . I guess those are what the seller was telling me about. He did say something about the movie theater AND THE UNIT HAD A METER IN THE MIDDLE OF THE FRONT FACE PLATE . thank u.

    Becuse of your input I did not buy the amps. Grumpy u were right the pictures u post of the two altec tube amps were the same as the seller had but after reading up on some info that u guys provided. I learn those amps can be unstable at times . But he did buy my technics reel to reel. He also have a pair of luxman mono block tube amps I am thinking of buying MB-3045 only 45 watts rms
