Same. The 100w archon was already a monster with 6L6 so I would be verrrrry curious to see how the mt100 sounds with big bottles.I hope not as I would be forced to purchase one immediately (when available). I put KT77s in my Archon 100 head a week or two ago and it is glorious.
If they did choose a 200 watt KT88 loaded MT for production, that hoe better have power scaling. They *could* do similar circuit trickery like they did on the 15 watt, and make it less wattage, but I don’t know that I’ve ever seen a company do that with a whole ass quad of KT88’s. It seems like they’d rather have it as a switchable option with that much glass.
This is true. I went with 4 KT66's in my 100 watt Omega Granophyre and I'm almost certain Mark did as well with his Grano. By all accounts he has been very fond of that amp since he got it so it could be the direction he's going, going with the big glass in the MT100. Hopefully we find out soon.It's hard to tell on that picture, but couldn't those bottles be KT66 as well ? They've been hyping the amp as a MT100, not MT200.
Its actually a couple things, its an M to start, its also 3 mountain peaks, and a stylized III. "Tremonti" literally means three mountains in Latin. The design and etymology geek in me about burst when I saw this.I believe that is a stylized “M” for “Mark” and is the same logo on the side of the MT15.
I'd actually tend to agree with this - as intrigued as I always am about amps with KT88s, I've actually yet to play an amp loaded with them that I truly liked. Stiff and cold is exactly how I'd describe them. Every amp I've owned with them in it has been kinda lifeless and sterile with a severe lack of character. VHT Ultralead, Bogner Shiva, Splawn Nitro, Diezel Herbert - all of them sounded significantly worse to me than their EL34 counterparts.I'm a bit disappointed if it has some sort of big, high-plate-voltage tube in it. Those IME tend to sound stiff and cold to me. Even the Archon sounded a bit that way to me; would not like the MT100 to be even more so. But presumably as long as the preamp section is designed around it, it'll still sound great.
