    OTL's are lovely. I can see why it had an effect, Tom.

    Interesting that it has a computer cooling fan visible in the design.
    I assume that the valve runs a bit warm then?

    It was a few days before I realised they have fans. The fans run slowly and are all but silent, even with the covers off - the power tube doesn't get warm though interestingly the EL34s do.

    They should be quiet. They are from the German manufacturer “Be Quiet!” who specialise in quiet cooling parts for PCs.
