Default Help! What is this giant US Amps?!?

Ok, snagged this off local CL for a steal of a deal, and honestly, I'm sorta clueless as to what it is. It is definitely in a VLX 200 chassis (40 incher) but i'm not convinced it is a VLX 200. The only other picture of a VLX 200 that looks similar is the one posted on ampguts.
All others that I have found have 4 toroids, instead of the two that I have. Also, the capacitor number and grouping is slightly different.

Anyway, thanks for looking!
Paul

Mine:


Also, here is a 3-4 inch gap that also seems to be unique to my/the ampguts amp:

I believe that is a REAL VLX200 and the others you've seen are VLX400s re-badged.

Is it 40" or 44"? A VLX-200 or VLX-400 are both 44". There isn't much visually to tell them apart, actually. the boards on yours seem spaced pretty far apart. They also made a USA-800 in the same heatsink. Here is a picture of my buddy's 3 VLX-200s (The purple one used to be mine) We are at this time waiting on a confirmation from Greg at U.S. Amps though to find out if they are indeed VLX-400s, as 200's were quite rare they say, most of them were 400's rebadged as 200's....

Yours may be a first-run of the VLX-200, and they used the same boards as a USA-200HC, it may have been right when they switched over in I believe it was 1994 or so.

mine is a 40 inch model, not the 44. However, I do believe that the vlx 200 was built in both a 44 and a 40 inch model. could be wrong tho.

Like I said, I believe the first run of them is like yours, in a 40" heatsink with single toroids on each board. That is how the older square-shaped heatsink was. (the 200HC was 40") After that, they did the first revision of them and switched them to a 44" heatsink with dual toroids, but also as I said, there were VERY few true 200's out there, most were rebadged to get into a lower power class, since that's how USAC and dB Drag did their classes back then.
