You're welcome!

Which smile? Jesse had a big grin from the time he arrived until he left

Chris,
I agree with you, Jesse's pretty happy with those and who wouldn't be? As I noted before they sounded every bit as good as they looked. Kudos to all concerned. Your efforts were certainly a big factor in granting the "WOW! Award.


As for the bamboo, have you consided a base for your "Scott" amp? I thought they sounded pretty good, but then I really liked the balcony venue and that may have played a part.

Best Regards,
TerryO
Terry, I must have it really bad, 'cause I've already been thinking about lining up enough projects to justify paying for a sheet of the bamboo plywood - and yes my cut plan would certainly include enough offcuts for bases for both the next Scott rebuild and a pair of the new Bottlehead Paramours - but I doubt anything could approach the conceptual and physical artistry of Jesse's Eagle Amp

You guys are making me blush

I had a wonderful time at the get-together... so fun to be amongst people as nuts about hifi as me (some even more!).

One of the best things, tho' - I had tried the 4766 chipamp previously and, despite the pretty cabinetwork, was not too impressed. On both a pair of Ohm-Fs and some Tannoy 635s it just didn't sing. So when we hooked it up at Dave's, I wasn't expecting much. Thoughts of 'maybe a couple of 3875s won't overheat the sink...'. However, when given the right speakers to drive, it just came alive. I might have dumped the circuit had it not been for the event, and missed a really good design.

The PAWO's made it home without a scratch (thanks to Dave's terrific packing, and set up in my room they sound even better (to me.)

Great to meet everyone. Next year, you couldn't keep me away with a flamethrower.

Thanks all - especially Dave and Ruth.

Jess

I wish i had lent you guys 2 sets of mini a's I just finished a set of SMD mini a's working perfectly and to my ear so far sounding better than the through hole.


If i had them in a listening state i would have lent 2 mini aleph's smd & through hole. I am not a chip amp fan at all both peter's and brian gt's Yet i'm best friends with Brian Bell (chipamp.com ) owner i still prefer the Aleph's.

Any one want to see pictures of a demo setup of Aleph Smd's

And nice meeting you Jess!

I forgot to get your email from you. I didn't have as many parts we talked about as I thought.

I thought Jesse's amp sounded pretty good, at least to these old ears. When he said they weren't all that great (before we hooked them up to the PAWO's) I was astounded when I heard them actually playing. I really had to wonder if my hearing was that bad

Anyway, I feel better knowing that maybe it wasn't my hearing that was deceiving me, evidently others thought it sounded pretty good as well. A really nice job all the way around.

By the way, I'm going to try to get those pic's of the Turntable to Jesse and Greg this evening.

Best Regards,
TerryO
