They are 8-output tube push-pull designs using 5881 beam tetrodes and were fitted with triode-tetrode switching (UP is Triode and DOWN is Tetrode). They use the same output transformer as the acclaimed model 225.
These amps are capable of delivering a sublime 100 watts in triode mode with excellent transient and bass control. Should your speakers require a bit more power, tetrode (Ultralinear) mode provides a punchy 200 watts. Bias readout tip jacks are located behind the faceplate on the top deck while the bias adjustment pots are located in front of the large grey B+ caps on the top deck.
Although the 100/200 model ceased production in 1993, similar amplifiers with an "open chassis" were built at the Manley Labs factory: The "Euro" 200/100 triode-tetrode and 175 ultra-linear. Except for the switch to a 6414 driver tube, their circuitry is the same. I recently retubed and biased both monoblocks with Tungsol reissue 5881s.The input 12AT7 has been upgraded with a superb Mullard M8162/CV4024. Used in the context of various loudspeaker reviews.
