I first ran across it in the ill-fated (and highly unreliable) Audio Screach D-100.

1973, if I am right. Also, their first SS amp. Someone didn't know how to calculate heat sink area...........

I used to make $ rebuilding them. Put in a better front-end, and remove some of the turns, on the transformer, to lower the operating voltage. Think I still have the guts to one or two around here............somewhere.

Getting the front panel off was a pain. The fuseholders were on the front, and there was not enough slack to work with.

Hmmm...............seem to recall I also made new side panels, so it could be deeper. Needed for all that other open-loop crap that I added.

Take that..............!
"Major Danby, sir."
"Danby. D-A-N-B-Y."
"Take him out and shoot him."
"Sir?"
"I said take him out and shoot him. Can't you hear?"

Things and topologies are often forgotten and buried deep in the dust.....then 40+ years later rise like a Phoenix and become novelty again  :)
Never argue with a fool,
they will drag you down to their level,
then beat you with their experience!!!
