Reviews Summary for Emtron DX - 3SP
Reviews: 1 Average rating: 5.0/5 MSRP: $$4999
Description: The "Big Gun" is getting even bigger, with the new DX-3SP! With over 4000
Watts CW and more then 4500 Watts SSB, this QRO muscle amp is not a
joke! It is an amplifier with gravitas capable of satisfying the serious and
most fastidious station operator. All specifications and features, except
output power, are the same all throughout the Emtron amplifier product
range, and the DX-3SP comes complete with QSK module as standard.
The design deploys two durable FU-728F tubes (improved Chinese mil-
version of the 4CX1500B) in parallel, with a total plate dissipation of 3000
Watts, comfortably delivering the expected output power and durability.
These robust FU728F tubes are manufactured in present production and
are available directly from the manufacturer, or from Emtron, exclusively for
Emtron amplifier owners. We believe that this new DX-3SP is physically the
smallest 4000 Watt desktop RF amplifier on the market today, and the most
popular as well.
Product is in production.

Update over 4 years  Time owned: more than 12 months
The DX 3SP Amplifier...I am happy I got mine when I did! The amplifier can generate 5KW PEP, mine only costs new $5,000 (USD)...The amplifier has two FU 728 ( More powerful than 2 4CX1500).

To buy amplifier today (Competition cost about 7,000 +++

The tubes are far less expensive (Few hundred a piece), and what I love with the AMP, if one tube fails, you can switch to the other one, and still have 2500 Watts..(Note, I had one tube fail, and it was my fault!)

The support over the years have been awesome..

And the ease to repair, total easy accessible, Underneath the tubes, (Cover, does not sound like much, but it is easy to isolate!) / Note very little issues, just operating errors!

I believe Emtron still sells them...But what a bargain. Several thousands less, and easy to repair, and lightning speed protection...It is a beast...Owe yes, I had a 4 year warranty!
