Hahaha thanks!! Speaking of finding these things, I'll be driving to Canada within the next couple weeks to pick up a pair of Northern Electric (sister company to Western Electric for Canadian products) 4045c monoblocks from 1935. Pre-war transformers are sublime, best materials. If you're ever near Washington DC, or northern VA I can point you to the mecca of vintage audio stores, where my own passion was born.
just excellent stuff. i am picking up my refurbished variac there this weekend.
