This must be an interim mailing (aside from the big 2012 catalog) from Music Direct - I haven't gotten this one.

Might use the free shipping code on that cover. Thanks!

Re: Music Direct catalog has Bob's new amps

no more ebay for the products sold on bob's site. that was the birth place for sales, but now it is a dealership product. tom at vintage hifi has some for sale also as he is one of the first dealers. you can still pick up refreshed vintage amps on ebay that bob cherries out. they run the 6bq5 in one and el506 in the other with 12ax7 in the front ends. these are some good vintage amps he updates with some of his current thinking . it is simply amazing how they sound after he does his magic to them. i know first hand, as we compare all the apples and oranges here. solid state and tubes alike. boy it seems that word "amazing" is sure used alot when describing bob's work.... :lol: :lol: ......but then again, that is how it goes when i talk about the master audio nut named bob huh.... :D

Re: Music Direct catalog has Bob's new amps

I was like WTF, there it is in the spring 2012 issue I just got. At $7400 and 12,900 I don't think I'll ever afford one of these, dam it!
