I owned a pair of these in mahogany ribbon finish and they sounded great!  I had them for a year or so before trading up to the Legacy Focus model.  Great price on an excellent sounding pair of speakers. 

Your oak finish looks fantastic!  GLWTS

I have an Eico 667, which is a simple emissions tester, see link:

It's not one of those fancy mutual conductance ones like a Hickock, etc.  It will tell  you if the tube is good or bad, that's about it.

There are plentiful options for you!  These tubes are generally inexpensire and fun to roll.

  Total invested $7200.

I'll bet that your audio setup sounds like a million $$$!  Someday I hope to it.  ;D

Ron's setup has an exceptional soundstage, wide and deep.  The imaging is very 3D.  Nice and smooth, very easy to listen to his Harbeths.

What do you use Wi-Fi for on a smoker?

Temperatures transmitted via WiFi from sensors planted in the meat(s).  You can monitor how the meat is cooking from your cell phone or tablet while at Starbucks or wherever.  Smokers have gone hi tech!

Congrats to whoever!  Such a fine looking amplifier that is build like a tank with high quality parts by very skilled technicians at Mac

I have the kit versions of both the 350 and 299.  My LT-110 and LK-72 are both chocolate faces and restored by cjkinpa.  He's not doing much work anymore.  He had a ton of Audiogon and eBay feedback for his restoration pieces.  My LK-72 was his personal piece.  He restored my LT-110, 222B and my Fisher X-1000.  Recapped, selenium rectifier replacement some nice premium caps in the signal path.  He did great work!
