John, you may be right. THe 1000 looks good too and i'm sure I could live without that last 500 watts output. It's more in the price range I was hoping for. Does it also have the nifty TRI tune set up?

Once you use a no tune up amp like the Tokyo Hy-power you will never want to go back. the 2500 KFx is like having a 1500+ watt Radio, you never need to even look at the Amp much less tune it! The amp just follows you from band to band
and any operator screw ups or short circuits are caught instantly so you never need to worry.
Myself I have no problem with having to tune amp (and it would not feel right not to tune it) and you still cannot beat a tube in watts per dollar and a tuner of some sorts is pretty much a must have with a solid state amp while Acom is good to go for up to 3 to 1 without the need of a tuner. The day I need a no tune amp to operate Ham radio is the day I am likely to quit hobby.
