Any photographs yet? I perused most of the CES show reports online but wasn't able to find any photos of the FirstWatt amps.

Anything's gotta be better than those Volksamp versions. While the X series stuff looks good, I still have a soft spot for that little "cubist sea urchin" Aleph 3. Any chance of reviving that chassis?

The price has not been fixed, but will be the least expensive
thing I have offered since about 1978.

That leaves begging the question as to whether the prices will be inflation adjusted from 1978 dollars.

That's the double digit inflation of the Carter years.

I do not know what you offered in 1978. The first Threshhold product I listened to was in 1981. In 1982 a friend had a real sweet 50 watter. Seems like it was around a 1000 - 1200.00 if I remember. But if it is priced in the realm of the Volksamp Aleph 30 is sounds like you should sell a lot.
A real quiet 15 watt X would sit very pretty in my system. I just need to peddle some stuff on A-Gon so momma does not find out.

Default X-SOZ

i still think that with the right speakers, my 5 watt X-SOZ is
the best sounding amp i've ever heard... so i can't wait to
see/hear these new offerings!

Default Binding posts?

What kind of binding posts? I would hate to see a bad review for using substandard hardware.
