Congrat's on the great deal you got on your latest CSP2+ Lon,  I agree that the white w/ walnut it is a great looking combo.  When I talked to Mr Deckert 2 wks ago he mentioned that they may be dropping the white tops due to too many factory flaws from his supplier.  Apparently that smooth white is very difficult to produce w/ out dust or whatever getting in it before it dries.  He said they have rejected something like 500 tops during their run w/ them.  Hence the switch to the typewriter type finish seen on the new Taboo for instance.  Matter of fact, he said by the time they call me when my Rachael is on the bench, I may have to decide on the last white top they have, or go w/ black.  White would match my csp2.

Greg, the white tops that Steve DID install were great looking, too bad he had to send back so many. I bet the black tops look awesome as well, they do in photos.

I like having them matched, but mix and match could be cool as well!

Most definately Lon, those white face meters look very cool on the new Taboos black deck.

Thanks for sharing that info on the white top issue.

Makes sense to me now ....

Recently Steve made a new amp with a cosmetic white top issue available for sale at a discount.

I suppose my white top Decware amp can now be considered to be a limited edition?
:)

The new black top amps really look cool though!
I wonder how they would sound with the legendary "Black" caps?
;)

When I was 11 years old one of my first passions was old typewriters. So I am familiar with the black wrinkle finish.

Well, last night Steve sent out a message about three last white CSP2+ preamps all ready to go into bases ands ship. . . and I had a momentary lapse of reason and ordered the 2nd one, that had beeswax caps.

And I got it, I'll be billed soon and I'm going to add a stepped attenuator.

I sat there with my head reeling because I shouldn't have done it, but i was going to in time send my original one (I have two at the moment!) in for the beeswax upgrade and that cost me a bunch when I did it on the Torii . . and I could then move one of those I have into my second system and have a new CSP2+ that matches cosmetically my new Torii Mk III in that system, and move the old black CSP2 (this one I had built in the black metal Select chassis) into my Dad's system and have the ZStage in there now as a back up (the ZStage is very cool, but it's not a CSP2 or CSP2+!)

So . . . my bank account is going to hurt, but i'm going to be happy!
