Default Thank you Mr. Pass

I just wanted to say thanks.. I own a 400a and love it. Without your ability to design such an amplifier way back in the 80's I simply could not have afforded the fantastic sound I have now. I love the amp so much that I bought another with a bad channel which I hope to fix.. apparently it got hot and stopped working in one channel.. but even if I cant fix it it will be good to cannibalize to keep my good amp running years and years from now!!

Thanks

Thanks jacco.
So it is a Threshold.

Anybody know when Nelson left this company?
And the other question would be:
At that list of old amplifiers, which one was the last made by Our One and Only?

1991 is what i recall, think NP posted as such as well.

Last 2 models i can remember i saw and heard before the news of the lobster man leaving broke were the SA/10e and SA/3.9e, in that order.
[i used to be an NP groupie. Dam-n(Will Smith @copyright) ,...i still am, how pathetic can one be.]

Let's hope the Only but not the Lonely himself hops in to tell it like it really is.

Yes,
I think he will correct us, at least if we are wrong.
If we are right, he will not waste any words here.
In true Nelson Style of behavior

thanks again, jacco

I hope to soon be able to do my exam
and present my papers in the subject:
Nelson Pass and his Amplifiers - a study of an unique person & his works.
I hope I will be able to do this before he passes away
and this forum on that day is left in total grief and sorrow.
It would be nice for him to read.
After all he did for me and all others here.
I think he will feel honoured. And he deserves it.



By the way, I need to know his date of birth.
Otherwise I would hardly get my exam, would I?
Anybody knows?
Maybe there is some page like this: Famous Danes - famous from Denmark
with famous persons from USA ....

(notice especially Danish #23 - Rasmus Lerdorf
it is because of him we right now read a page here named showthread.php
Because Rasmus 'constructed PHP' - and he used those letters
as short for Personal HomePage
as he used his script for his homepage, originally.
http://lerdorf.com/ )



Regards
to all faithful 'lineup readers'
yours

I thought that was the number of different amp topologies he's had in production...

BTW, you can get a 400A schematic at www.passlabs.com/np
and there are some other little odds and ends there for
downloading.
