Looks nice Eddie, when do expect them to hit?
In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to a good analogue reproduction.

I know why Bob painted them black... He had the urge to paint them black after the group pictures at Carverfest this year. You will notice in some of the pics he is wearing a black Goodwrench #3 hat for the first time, and this will cause things like this to happen! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Congrats Eddie! I see a mass sell off of SS amps from you in the near future.

Too bad I don't use KT88's or I'd be at your door on the 7th....LOL
Political Correctness...defined

A doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.



In a recent press conference, President Obama remarked, "If I had a city, it would look just like Detroit."

Don't waste a good opportunity to shut up!

Good judgment comes from experience, but experience usually comes from bad judgment.

The best thing is to learn from others that have mastered the one thing you need to learn!

I would tell you to go to hell but I already work there and I don't want to see your ugly face every day!
