Default Ken Ealey Mods????

Hi
Has anyone heard of or known anyone to have any work done by this person? Ken Ealey I am thinking of sending him my 400A for a 500.00 dollar major updating.

His web site is http://www.kenealeyaudio.com/.

And the page that talks about what he does is http://www.kenealeyaudio.com/Threshold400A.asp

It looks like a good update.

I am new to this update stuff and any input to what he says he does would be greatly appreciated. I would hate to possible wreck a good amp.

John

I haven't heard of him previously, but he has a sincere looking
picture.

I would rather look at a sincere close-up picture of an upgraded amp. Why not disclose the types of components he uses? It will then become apparent if the upgrade is worth the money or not.

How much is this amp worth compared to the cost of upgrade anyway? Is selling it and adding $500 to buy a better used amp not more cost/quality effective?

As a DIYer, you clearly would build an amp.

Magura,

I think that is exactly the point of Nelson's joke.

No offense to anyone on the site, but I wonder how many of the newbies know that Mr. Pass is one of the world's best amplifier designers?

I have found this
dedicated to Nelson by an famous pianist.


So you want to build an amp.
You got the urge to build an amp.
You got the nerve to build an amp.
So go ahead, so go ahead and build an amp.
Go ahead and build an amp that can sing.

Pay no heed, Pay no mind.
Pay no heed to what we tell you,
Pay no mind to what we tell you.
Cast away all that you were told
And the theory that you read.
As we said come and build one,
Oh do come and buil one,
build an amp that can sing.

Now the only way to build one
Is to plunge right in and build one.
Just forget the rules and build one,
Just ignore the rules and try.

And the fun of it will get you.
And the joy of it will fetch you.
Its a pleasure that is bound to satisfy.
When you decide that John Sebastian must have been a very personable guy.

Never be clever
for the sake of being clever,
for the sake of showing off.

For to try to build an amp that can sing.

And when you finish building it
I think you will find a great joy in it.

or so...
Nothing ventured, nothing gained they say
But still it is rather hard to start.

Well let us try right now.
Now we are going to build an amp.
We are going to build a good one.
We are going to build an amp... right now.
