It probably outsold every other ham transmitter in it's class. Today it is still prized by many. When new it sold for around $190 and has extremely well built transformers. 6146 finals in it are almost an industry standard. A DX-100 is much more usable on ham bands then an ART-13. Put the ART in a museum or use it as a parts rig.

Funny thing, but in all the years that I used AM on 160- and 40-meters, I heard a LOT more DX-100s on the air, than I did ART-13s...
In fact, I think I may have worked but one, single ART-13---and I'm not even sure about that.
