interesting Art. That's alotta cheap entertainment for the sli-80. I've often wondered about factory published specs of power consumption as the sli-80 i owned for 5 yrs. stated around 65 watts at idle - is that correct? The Pass X250 I owned years ago ate up some juice & was a heater. The power consumption/heat/many tubes/mono amp thing has kept me from getting into OTL's for a long time. My present amp runs cool w/minimal number of tubes, uses 70 watts at idle & alittle more when in use - something I do think about -while sounding fantastic. happy new year, cheers!
