Helen, Sidney and I hope you all have a safe and happy Thanksgiving!

Just remember, when you fry your turkey make sure it is in the garage, the oil is boiling hot, the bird is still frozen and for sure just drop it in from about 2 feet high.

Better yet, don't do any of that.....just wait for the YouTube videos of the morons that did do that! I'm sure there will be some. With luck they won't burn their house down.

I need a "testbed" single input pre-amp to evaluate various MM phono stages. I understand that the only way to get balanced outs with the "Truth" is to put balancing transformers on the outputs. OK, maybe a small compromise but necessary for me. So I am wondering: what advantage or disadvantage would this solution have over something like the Bent Audio Slagleformers that are naturally balanced already?

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.

So I am driving around listening to News radio and all I hear are reports of people in line to vote saying "I don't like the way the county is going" or "I'm voting for change", blah blah, blah.

Last I looked, the economy was doing pretty good, taxes are lower, we are finally doing something about China and pretty much anyone who wants a job can get one.

I though that was change...John   
They can be called Economic S&M.  They prefer pain and suffering over comfort and peace.  The others are misguided souls, AKA Sheeple (per Ed  Wink ) which can easily happen if they tune to major networks and press.

I ordered mine in a black metal case many years ago. Bought the know of eBay.

Unfortunately the black face plate has changed color toward purple. Probably was not UV resistant. Maybe one day I'll 'paint' the face plate black again.

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
