The Merrill Audio ELEMENT 114 Stereo Amplifier, just like the ELEMENT 116 and ELEMENT 118 utilizes a custom LLC resonant power supply with a custom transformer as an inductor.
Element 118 will be named oganesson, or Og, after Yuri Oganessian, a Russian physicist who contributed to the discovery of several superheavy elements.
IUPAC has now initiated the process of formalizing names and symbols for these elements temporarily named as ununtrium, (Uut or element 113), ununpentium (Uup, element 115), ununseptium (Uus, element 117), and ununoctium  (Uuo, element 118)," Professor Jan Reedijk, president of the inorganic chemistry division of IUPAC, said.
Most lower results are located in the scale from element 104 to element 118: according to our calculation, the deviations are only 0.2-0.3% there.
Scientists from California's Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research in Russia said they have produced element 118. Using a particle accelerator machine, the researchers smashed together calcium (Ca) and californium (Cf) at extremely high speeds.
American and Russian scientists announced the creation of a new superheavy element, known as element 118 or ununoctium, which was generated by firing calcium ions at californium; three atoms resulted from the experiments, and each lasted a small fraction of a second.
Physicists at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), Calif., and the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (JINR), Dubna, Russia, have purported the existence of the newest superheavy element, element 118.
Figure 3 in Page 68 shows a shift of the atomic mass just element 104, before Period 8: in element 118 the atomic mass is shifted for 11 units; in Period 9 the shift exceeds 15 units, and then it increases upto 21 units.
The discovery of element 117 filled the periodic table up to the already-found element 118. The long-lived isotopes of 117 bolster the notion that the island of stability exists, say Hofmann and others.
By simulating the 3-D BGS magnetic fields, the designers optimized the optics before construction, delivering an estimated 75% efficiency for Element 118.
The new work synthesized element 118 from different materials--an isotope of californium and calcium ions.
