I'd check the amp's DC offset first, then swap some signal and power cords.  It could just be as simple as a ground wire from the source to the amp.

My cat has one talent: pulling wire.  I always have to check connectors before playing music.

So, I guess sacrificing security comes second behind politics.  Being old has advantages.

I'm "underserved" should read I'm "undeserving".

Why is impeding illegal folks from invading the US an issue?

Virginia wore them out!  I only watched some of it because it was played in Charlotte and I have family members that went to UVA.

I thought UVA would win, but 28-0... ouch.  Cry

Clemson put the leprechauns in their overrated cage and Alabama rules once again.  It's really good to live in the southeast.

And then there's basketball, oh my.  Grin

(including the reminder about your bout with a kidney stone. Ugh!).

I should share less.  The opiates make me free.  Good thing I didn't have the will to post when I was jacked on morphine.  Wink

But enough about my crap, get some Heils and smile.

I just pulled the trigger.

On the Heil purchase, not on the 15-22.

Thanks to Ed, Steve, and Henry for making me aware of the sale.

Happy New Year to everyone.

Welcome to the club!  The cool thing is that you can play with capacitor values to suit your ears and room.  The stock values work well for most.

Straight from the manufacturer.  Retailers are still selling them for list price.  Here's where they are:

Cheap is good.  Grin

edit... ESS is shipping free as well and that's really nice since these weigh quite a bit and the box is large.

I hope you all have a good experience.  Don't let family and/or self-imposed limits get in the way.

I'll be with my mom for a few days.  She's 89 and has a new hip (there should be a joke somewhere in there).  The cool part is that she can come home from rehab to hang out with my sister, brother-in-law, Sherry and me.  Smiley

Also, after 15 years of getting to know one another, Sherry and I are getting officially hitched in mid-January on Ocracoke Island.  Womens be relentless.  Wink

Seeing this makes getting old easier.  From the little girl charming hearts at Hornfests to a talented and strong woman.  All the best.

Cool, I worried that less than half price meant impending doom.  I have a pair on the way and may go for many more to help my boys here at the Horn Shoppe.   Grin

"But really, let's all have a good day together.  God Bless us all."

You nailed it, Henry. I have much to be thankful for, if only I look.

We all need to count blessings.

Yep, I've heard that charred human flesh is tasty.  So, let's fire it up and let nature takes it's course.

But really, let's all have a good day together.  God Bless us all.

Just a heads up... again.  The ACA is in stock at the moment.  I haven't built mine yet.  It was a comedy of errors.  I was charged and then it went away.
 Not paying attention, I didn't notice my order was voided.  The diyAudio site is a bit confused when using a chromebook.  My second ACA kit is here, but the chassis will be another month since it crosses the big waters.  I'm in no hurry, but hopefully I'll have something under the Christmas tree.

The price is close to $360 for a single kit (shipped).  The chassis is nice and it's all in one box for a stereo amp.

Also, I see that Nelson has designed an active crossover for those interested in bi-amping.  It's on the same website and is about $300.

Well said.  As a stupid retirement decision, I chose to learn and do machining.  In 2010, there were few jobs to be had and difficult to land.  Now I get daily job feeds from Indeed and the employment in that field have quadrupled... and at better pay. 

Now, anybody that wants to work can work.  Can you see a pattern?

One more thing about knobbies... I do like the volume knob on mine a little better than the black.  It's a satin finished silver that's smooth and simple, and looks really good.  Maybe that could be another choice for a few more dollars... or Ed could simply supply the part number for those of us obsessing over such silly things.  Huh

I just like the satin silver against the black chassis, no bling but a little less retro IMO.  Smiley
