Holy heck, PE! *PIC*
And I thought that the Pioneer was a nice product edition, but Nuera SETs?! PE is carrying an SET?!
Steppin' up to the big time, eh?
No more JV games, PE is on the home audio block!

Speaking of such things... when are we going to see PE build some electronics in one of their sale catalogs instead of a speaker? I'm thrilled to see each issue's new speaker build, but seeing plans for an affordable solid state amp, a cheap tube amp, or even a simple preamp or DAC would also be very interesting.

Well, with an EL-34 output, it's technically a SE Pentode. (although it may be wired in 'triode' mode). Interesting, but unfortunately I'm starting off on some tripath experiments, and so I can't take a flyer on one.
Now granted I don't know the difference between SET, SEP, BFD, FET, SOB, or even maybe a BBW amp, but I do recall a day when PE did carry tube stuff that you could buy in either kit form or pre-assembled. There were kits from Velleman, and a pre-amp from VAL (valve audio laboratory). I recall a few people having said they bought the amps and for what they were, pretty damn nice overall.
Not sure who/why/when/where they dropped said products but Iam guessing that with such prices, most bottleheads will buy products from name brands and folks that they are more familiar with. Only time will tell with the new lines they picked up though...

I just noticed the design topology, and I'd say that your correct.
I'm not sure they'll sell, with a Prima-luna KT-88 out put for only >$200.00 more.
