    Very interesting. I wonder what the power increase is? As a tube fan - it's great to see new tube types.

    I haven't been able to find anything yet, but the KT120 has a plate dissipation of 60w and a pair can produce approx. 150w. So the KT150 will be even more. I wonder if they would be a drop-in replacement for your REF250's. I kinda' doubt it...but you can dream.

    In that case I'll wait for the Reference 400. Ha!

    Not.
