Default Yuppie Excess

This is why I dont read audio industry rags and tend to
avoid "high-end" stores with their legions of uptight
***holes who pontificate on what is "the best". It's kinda
like going to a BMW showroom and having to listen to the
elitist snobbery of the salesmen who they themselves
cannot afford to purchase anything other than an entry
3-series.

I earned my 845s and Merc power supply with my own
blood sweat tears and time. I live with them. They are a part
of my life, not another "Rolex" to be worn for status and show.
They are part artistic showpeice, part engineering but they are
truly mine. They arent worth $100,000 though. Just a month
of time and some cheap parts.

I'm more interested in what is attainable and beautiful.

Fair enough, Jim. That is certainly a reasonable and healthy attitude.

At the same time, this is one area where it is possible, to warp a homily, to enjoy a cake without eating it. In other words, I find that I can appreciate the unobtainable and excessive, without feeling inferior or desperate.

I find that the same attitude of zen observation allows me to appreciate yachts, expensive cars and trophy wives, without the associated costs. As Elton John sang, "Some things are better, just passing through."

Best,

George "Oooh, Nice Knobs!" Ferguson

I thought mecury vapor rectifiers were a huge no-no...creating lots of wideband noise both in the supply and as EMI/RFI. Perhaps these are style over substance amps?

I agree, Milo.

Well, you may have seen it before, but check
out this page from VSAC 2003:

http://www.nutshellhifi.com/VSAC2003-2.html

It's another of Josh's creations, and certainly
an eyecatcher.

On the "bright" side, there's little chance
one will forget that it's on.

Best,

George "Oooh, Nice Tubes!" Ferguson

Actually that whole page is really interesting, thanks for posting the link.
