Thanks for the link.

If that WE stuff is all original there's several thousand dollars worth of equipment in that
video and that does not include the stereo front end equipment!

Most if not all were not owned by the theatres, they were leased from Western Electric.  There is a set kicking around that were not completely destroyed and a friend of mine reassembled them, pretty impressive in person.

Back then the watts were different.  They were all day, all night, continuous.  not burst tones with dynamic range associated.

It was said many years ago by a wise man, what we need is a 100 watt continuous amplifier that can pass 10,000 watt peaks (20dB).  For single channel, we are not there yet, on the peak side anyway.
