I'm in an odd situation in which my house was broken into and they stole most of my audio stuff. My insurance company won't reimburse me the full value of what was stolen unless I buy a similar item of equal or greater value. But I've decided to replace everything with stuff I built, and they valued my NAD S100 at $700. So how do I build a preamplifier for $700? Well, it helps to spend $260 on a volume control and a selector switch, which I found here: Prices

Now, how much can I blow on a chassis?

Now I need a condenser calibration mic to match.
BTW, the Nady mic is identical, down to the gold-plated XLR pins, except the etched name and $10 less

Thorens TD145 for E 2,50 at a local thriftstore

As child #3 was born exactly a week ago I got to
spend more time at home and as blood is thicker
I guess i'll be spending more time on audio again.
The tracks are all wet so no racing the coming months

Planning to listen more to music through some of my analogue
equipment instead of the 7.1 x something watt sony amp sitting
underneath the telly and getting fed up with adjusting audio delay
through sloooooow menu's.....

Hoping to revive it the coming months

You've got the cabinets as well or planning to build them?


Atm I'm thinking of a way to sneak bigger speakers downstairs
again but with the newborn I guess the misses will, as we dutch
say 'poke a stick in front of that' (een stokje voor steken) ;-)

Haven't decided what to do for cabinets. I might put them in the 825's or I might do something from scratch. Too many options to think about so I'll just let them mellow for the time being.

If you think we electronics fixit people got it bad, think about the poor doctors. With the interweb, all their customers have a crack at self diagnosis.

Wow, sorry to hear that, what steps have you taken in the ways of security?

Got 2X open box (i.e. returns w discounted 4 year warranty) Samsung 32" LED at Best Buy -- plus 5X Points on American Express. Too bad Best Buy will probably go bust before I need warranty service.
