Ha....yeah, new is a bad word for me....lol.....there are a few different models.....HD2 ect.....those have 4 tubes....not sure they make it anymore

 

As close as I can figure, mine is like maybe 7 years old.

 

You use to be able to buy the kits and build them yourself

He is a great guy, every time I have e-mailed him with a question, he has been quick to respond.

 

He knows his stuff.......HD800.....no problem.....your amp will be fine.

i used it to drive the lcd2, fine, no problems at all, didn't get screaming loud, but louder than i would ever listen to

Super 2 has more power and even lower output impedance.

It also uses EL84 output tubes so lots more options for tubes.

Sound is similar but it does have more power/gain if you need that...

Awesome... Something I've always wondered... is the Super 2, basically a low power EL84-Hammond 119DA coupled speaker amp (with common grounded outputs)?
