Power House!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
The New DX-3SP has been in my operating console for 30 days. 20 Plus hrs of use.

It has been "TUNED UP" on all HF bands and fed into a dummy Load. Put through exhausting trials.

As per its specs, the DX-3SP easily delivers legal power with 12 Watts to 20 watts depending on the band you are on. Headroom ??... "more than you will ever use"

EZ to tune. Cooling fans can be heard, but since I operate mostly on CW, fan noise here is not an issue.

I've had several emails back and forth to Rudi and Dan at Emtron. Very helpful in resolving any questions and issues.

I would welcome your telephone call to discuss if you wish Cell phone 1 801 372 2528 Roger Palmer

Awesome  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I had owned several Amplifiers, such as QRO (2500DX), Kenwood 922, and SB 220.. The DX - 3SP Amplifer is in the professional ranking, Nothing compares..

Lets start off with the AMP.We are talking real Testosterone, with a pair of 4CX1500 (If you wish to use), however, comes with a pair of FU-728F (Slightly higher power than the 4CX1500 )

Make no mistake about...The detail on the protection of the tubes, from the slow start, to VSWR protection, it is all over the top in high advance electronic circuitry, and you can actually monitor power line current.

The price, bascially a dollar a watt with a 4 year warranty. (What other company offers this??)

The usual, 20 or 25 watts input = 1500 PEP...I put in dummy load, and 20 meters, output of 5,000 watts PEP..

How about the service?

I had a question, (Nothing wrong with the AMP), and sent by email, I had two calls from the company at the same time..(The CEO and the Engineer)..

Who does that???

Emtron is based in Australia, and i know Aussie well (I am there often!), The Aussie are proud, loyal, and commited to their product and services, (Like Emtron) They remind of the 1950's in the USA, mean what you say and say what you mean.

In summary...

You can't beat the price (Dollar per watt), 4 warranty, and highly advanced circuity protection. Yes, it looks real good..!

The best piece of Ham Equipment I have owned in 34 years of being a Ham Operator..
