not mine.

as we know the 3-500Z needs 25W peak drive for full class B audio ratings.
Also, its very low driving impedance renders the usual driver transformers (like for 833s) very inefficient, almost unusable.
Driver iron is not abundant for 3-500Z at all.
Here are Triad 30 Watt units.. 500 Ohms CT to 32/16/8/4/2 Ohms. 40Hz-15KHz.
Easily driven by solid state amps, or a tube one. $20 each.
This kind of deal may never come around again. Closest thing is a new Edcor for $50-100.
I been through all of this, so..
