    Stereo 80 by Panor

    Ran into this beautiful Stereo 80 and couldn't resist. I installed new Gold Lion (re-issue) KT-66 tubes
    that are burning in while I'm writing this.
    Here is a link to photobucket

    Some pictures were taken out of hand with a .5 second shutter, so forgive me that they are
    not 100% sharp...

    As the KT-66 are brand new, I cannot give a "final" analysis right now, but my first impressions
    are very favourable. This is one fine (BIG!) amplifier !

    Is it a match for the ST-120 ?..... too early to say, but I'll come to that in a week or so. Promised.

    This is a BIG amp, which has the benefit of running rather there is plenty of air around the tubes.

    I will comment on its sound when tubes get settled...

    Nice find!

    I bought the Panor PAS-4 in 1996 on closeout, sold it, then wished I had bought multiples of all these at bargain prices!
