Always enjoy RayO's poetry and viewpoint. The Knight-Kit post stirred
memories of past Heathkits built including one of the finest CRT TV
pictures I've ever seen on a kit I built in the very early 1970's. That
kit lived nearly 20 years before I had to abandon it and Heathkit
disappeared. My speakers are only Acoustic Research AR-3a's and AR-4X's
- arguably some of the finest ever built and of course no longer
available 1969 vintage -- table-flat audible spectrum throughout most of
the range of human hearing with individual scope traces for each unit.
But I digress ....
Leaving for a small vacation with my TechniVorm, Infinity grinder and a
load of greens to feed the iR2. A Hottop is in the wish list but no
intended field mods. As much as I love the odor of hot solder, I'll
reserve that for repairs. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
I'm outta here for a while. Here's hoping Tom will come up with yet
more irresistible offerings to snag my wallet upon return.
