He was about to send me the new schematic to pass around to everyone who built one at CF, but decided that might be risky with a new amp in their lineup.




Regardless of each individual's decision regarding a trade, I wish to thank each of the Bobs' for coming up with this trade idea. =D>

Any word of a price yet to mull over for consideration? :-k

I agree; it's higher than I anticipated, but it IS less than 50% of retail.

The kits were @ $200 plus the time spent building them. Average to complete one was 20+ hours or so, but there were a LOT of newbs to soldering & electronics in general.

So turn in your $200.00+blood,sweat, and time and the kick up another$ 999.00? If I had a CF amp I would pass on that but that's just my view.

"That's fair"

Yep; and unlike ObamaCare, no one is FORCING you to take the offer. Although, under this new Supreme's ruling, the government could force you to buy anything and then if you didn't, fine you for not buying it and simply call the fine a TAX! Our corrupt, crazy world just became crazier! :lol:
