Our beloved Odie died Sat. night. Odyssus was his formal name, we called him "Odie". He had been sick and was in a cage for a while. He did not mind and actually preferred to be in his cage. He got where he could not make it to the litter box so we kept him in his cage and dealt with it. He was not ready to go when he lost control and since he was a (award winning) show cat he thought his cage was just "home". He never cared. Friday Helen said "he's got no fight left in him".

I woke up today and he was gone. Been a rough couple months....Bonnie and now Odie.

"The party's over, a new day begins, now is the time for confessing our sins....."  ("Timbuk 3")

It was great seeing you guys again, sadly several regulars did not make it, you know who you are! Thank God the weather was cool....The Beast may as well be space heaters! That little FU32 amp is so damn cool I'm going to get one just to use as a night light! I can't see actually using it, because, well, I have the Beasts and ACA as well but if I were in the market for the coolest tube amp and built or sold a speaker that could use it   and be happy with 4 watts I'd pick one up Smiley! Might even sound really good with a single driver OB Smiley.

Thanks guys, for making it a "party"! Keep next year open....If I don't croak I'll be 62 and able to get my "social security" that I've paid for since I was 15.....I really will want to have a party then!

Greetings everyone,

I made it back home last night and crashed for a couple hours ..... currently back among the living.
Those 10 hour nonstop road trips are not quite as easy as they were 30 years ago .....  Wink

Thanks to the Schilling family for the traditional SC hospitality.
Helen makes some killer banana pudding .....  Smiley

It was good to see some old friends again and make a few new ones ..... but I sure missed Henry .....  Cry

The "pink room" sure has changed over the years ..... it's not even pink anymore .....  Grin
Friday was a little bit light as to attendees but Saturday was a different story.

Ed had his new Transcendent Sound "Beast" monoblocks set up with half the possible power tubes installed and they were certainly capable of some serious SPLS ..... which put a big smile on Ed's face .....  Cheesy
With the bucket sub in the mix, I'm pretty sure the neighbors in the next county got to hear them as well.

I also had a chance to hear my Betsy baffles powered by a pair of Transcendent Sound Evermore OTL amps.
It was the first time I have heard them with OTL amps and the sound was very impressive.
The very fine gentleman who provided the Evermore amps also had a cool little Chinese amp called the FU32.
It was certainly one of the most interesting looking amplifiers I have ever seen and sounded great.

Best wishes to all,
Randy

See you Sat.!

Well, I completed the main unit and it works according to plan. Plenty of gain.....dead silent. All that remains is to build the p/s box which is just mounting the connectors when they show up.

I have put the gain stage on one input of 4. It could go on any number of them I reckon. One is good. I can not imagine anyone needing gain on more than one input.

I am very excited but my opinion means nothing. The opinion of the folks I built it for are all that matters to me. I will never be able to afford one! i wish it could stay for HornFest! It can't so  The Beasts will have to do for excitement instead:) Maybe we can fry a few drivers.....I'm sure they will want too Smiley.
Ed
ps......of course every Truth I have ever built can be "upgraded" but if you have enough gain there is simply no need. The Ultimate sounds exactly like the Truth as far as I can tell. The gain is "nice to have" but for many will not be needed. I do not "need" it but I want it....just because it is possible and Hell, I should be able to have  what I actually build! Soon as I hit the lottery I'll build myself one!  I NEVER would have thought of using xformers this way! I'm glad Max (Irv) is smarter than me and pushed me to make it!

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

Thanks Henry...I clicked it on to be notified.  Are they usually sold out?  Any idea on how long they usually take to get back in stock?

I've got a FW F3 that has some noise coming out of one of the channels and I started thinking about a back up amp and remembered about the ACA.

So these are an easy build?  How good w/a solder iron do you have to be?  I've replaced a few fostex 126 in my horns after frying them w/my Beast, but that's about it.

Brooks
