When I mean tube amp, I am also including radios, hi-fi, PA system etc. I remembered that it was said that, while old guitar amps can be expensive, it does not hold true for other tube amps, allowing them to be sold for less than $100.

However, it seems that more and more of non guitar tube amps is being as expensive as you used guitar amp. Does ti hold true for your experience?

On a side note, how much would you expect a signal path-all tube (ala preamp and power amp are tube) 4-chan PA be worth?

As long as people will pay for them, which they will until new, beter technology comes along, there isn't much incentive for manufacturers to lower their prices, despite most likely having achieved economies of scale which allow their products to be made at very low prices.

I am talking about used amp. Tube is good for guitar, debatable with hi-fi... but definitely not for PA (except for converting into a guitar amp, but that's another story). As I say, i am mainly focus on tube PA, since it allows me to have a quad channel to convert to.

Have you browsed Ebay at all? One time, I acquired a little all tube record player amp for about $10. It all depends on what you find and who's selling it. Any amp can be tailored for guitar. A 4 channel all tube PA amp, in good condition, would go for at least $200, if you luck out.
