Hi Steve,

Well, I finished the amp a few weeks ago, and I wanted to let you know that it sounds fantastic. (It looks better in person; I need to work on my photo skills.) I've been playing it as much as time permits, and it seems to sound better each day. There is no noise at all, and the depth and imaging is just great.  I had one friend over to listen to it, and he did the getting up to make sure it was just the amp & two speakers, and that my HT system with surround was not on.  Itís really quite remarkable.  I think the stereo imaging sounds much more natural than digitally processed surround anyway.  

I am doing a lot of playing around with it, trying different speakers and such, and it really doesnít seem to matter.  All speakers Iíve tried had fantastic imaging, even some inexpensive Polk R150ís.  I used to think it was the single driver creating the deep soundstage, but that is not the case. Another friend has some vintage Pioneer RPM 100ís we are going to hook up, and I canít wait to hear them. I think the ďlittle amp that couldĒ will do just fine, even with 12Ē woofers.

Now, the only problem is my friends want to borrow it, so I guess itís going to be a loaner amp for a while.  I donít mind, Ďcause I want them to hear what really good music sounds like.

If you need another reference or testimonial, let me know.

I am now on a Ďmediaí hunt Ė to find CDís that really show the imaging Ė I have found a few, but if you have any recommendations, Iím really interested.  A few are Steely Dan Gold, Radiohead Hail To The Thief and In Rainbows.  Give them a listen if you havenít already.

Thanks Again,

Dave Humke

Very Nice!
