Default Re: Woodstock PA system....

Hello,

Just been thinking in terms of time scales and Woodstock being 50 years ago and looking back to 1970 makes the Crown DC300 vintage equipment, much as if you were to look back 50 years from 1970, you’d be looking at early crystal sets and two valve receivers (RR page 65-68) and the birth of broadcasting from 2MT

The DC300 soon found its way to driving the main FOH speakers.

Regards using 6LQ6 I think G6Tanuki is right on all counts of cost, reliability and lower HT. EAR use the PL509 in their EAR 509 100watt amplifier.
