Don's FI-X was the thing that pushed me off the Horn fence.  Just the right combo of noise and cool.  RIP and thanks.

Would love to hear more about this little FU32 amp.

Also, there are two different FU32 amps listed on ebay for a similar price. Wondering what the difference is.

Hey Capt, it seems the more expensive one with the aluminum faceplate has better power and output transformers as well as better connectors.  Also, I think they mentioned a better inductor.   Smiley

I'd like to get one just for the cool tubes, but I have too much stuff.  Tongue

edit: You can see the deluxe model on Aliexpress if you scroll down and click on the picture...  The differences are in bold in the description.

I see it's down to $89 now with about $9 or $10 for shipping.

Only five hours left!   Smiley

Hey Brooks, they do sell out but seem to be back in stock often.  Great little amps for Horns... really.

Here you go, but they are currently sold out.  Sad

Hey John,
The stuff I've purchased goes to Massdrop and then mailed to me.  I envision they receive a pallet and separate the amps into individual orders.  I guess it depends where the product is sourced on a case-by-case basis.  You could ask that on the forum associated with this drop. 

Yes, once the discount threshold is hit, everyone gets the better price.  I don't know how committing to the lower price works, but I think doing so doesn't count toward achieving the goal.  I don't know how to track committing to the lower price.

New tubes would be another venture.  Massdrop can't provide more than what is listed.  I bought a little Mini compactron amp two years ago and bought some NOS tubes on epay. 

Even at $100, this is a nice deal.  Amazon has this amp for $185.  Hope this helps...

If you want a Miniwatt, here's the deal.  It's now on Massdrop for $99.99 and should go to $89.99 soon.  I've used Massdrop and they have been reliable.  Killer deal on a good little amp.  Smiley

Henry, Ed did that for mine. He put a selection toggle switch on the back. I love being able to switch from phono (TS phono stage) to digital without unplugging anything. Highly recommended.

Yep Steve, in Ed we trust.   Grin

Ed, put me in the queue for a regular Truth with two inputs.  No hurries or worries.  Wink
10  General Category / The Truth Pre Amp / Re: Truth with gain, closer to reality! on: April 02, 2017, 03:29:46 PM
Looks good Ed.  Out of curiosity, have you tried using that gain on higher voltage devices? 

Leave it to Ed to make something go to "11".   Grin

I should have mentioned that you will still run your main speakers from the existing amp full range as usual.
12  General Category / Technical discussion / Re: Connection of XLS amp to my Cube speakers on: March 24, 2017, 03:40:39 PM
Hey vrod, Take a look at pages 4 and 5 of the Crown manual to decide how to set the amp.  I think Ed supplies an attenuated cable that you can plug the RCA ends into the Crown's inputs.  So, couple the bare wire to your amp speaker outputs and then use the RCA's to the Crown's line level inputs.  Then you can program the amp to a crossover point that works for you. 

Just make sure you turn the Crown amp down when first starting.   Shocked

With a little patience, this will be a game changer.

Check out the AVA Ulravalve.  I really like mine.  Makes plenty of power and doesn't generate much heat.  The transformers are big and hardly get warm.  Great build quality.  A combo of solid state bass and tubey mids and highs.  Nice price...

Ed had a big expensive Pass amp that was very nice.  I just received a 35 watts/channel tube amp for another speaker but don't plan to hook it to the Horns.

Not much help, as usual...  Smiley

Ed, I know it's a hard time for you and Helen.  I'm very sorry.
