Default With the Simple SE I lost 20lbs w/o diet or excercise and I feel great!

My triode-wired 6550 powered Simple fired right up after a few tests with no smoke, hum or rush; just Emmy Lou slurring the last word of most every line.

My inner-Republican is still a little put off by those screw terminals but they sure make things easy. Time will tell just how good this thing is as the parts break in but right now I'll settle for the complete absence of noise (97dB sensitive speakers) between tracks.

Thanks George and all you folks who help each other and unknowingly, me.
