The Epiphone Panorama (EA 500T) and Panorama V (EA 400T) amplifiers were the most expensive amplifiers in the line in 1965, but by 1966 these were no longer listed in price lists; sales of the EA 500T and EA 400T were dismal, with just 106 and 37 units shipped respectively between 1963 and 1966.
1966 zone 1 prices for the Maxima (EA-600RVT) and Embassy (EA-300RVT/EA-300RVTL) were $590 and $469.50/$679.50. The EA-300RVTL model had J.B. Lansing speaker cones, accounting for the $210 price difference.
The Maxima was, of course, the new solid-state model, with 4x10" speaker cones, based on the Gibson GSS100 amplifier.
