Re: Update from Bob

I had to toss the original cap because the leads were too short to do this.
Fortunately, I have lots of these caps.
If anyone wants to do it this way and they want to start with fresh caps,
pm me with an address and a quantity.
This is a freebie until I run out.

Yup, the amp's dead silent, too.

I like to believe that the layout is part of the reason for that.

Can't wait to get all the parts so I can finish the other one.

These are probably going to get permanent duty on the ribbons.

Never expected them to be powerful enough for that.

They push the ribbons to 95 dB at my listening position.

Guess monoblocked they'll drive the 60s to 98 dB.

Amazing what these little guys can do!
