It's actually a 4 year old monoblock power amp.  Have been using it since...  when one of the tubes fails, just got to change everything.  Current makeshift with a Perreaux 175W per channel amp.

KT-88 has got alittle more character.  Well-audio labs do sell them but at exp.  price.

Just want to find out if there are other shops out there that I could find KT-88, need 4 pairs (8 piece).

You can also consider KT90 which many considers preferable to both 6550 and KT88. If I'm not mistaken, many ARC amps uses KT90 as stock tubes.
What model is yours?
