Hi Everyone, The long in process is nearing reality. This has been a labor of love going back nearly 7 years and countless variations. But now (drum roll please) I have seen the fully populated circuit boards and they are awesome. Cases are in the mill and then comes the fun part....do they sound like the prototypes? I sure hope so as they have been on the costly side to develop and produce. I currently use two of the prototypes and will never go back to any others I have heard. (I'm told that I am not modest enough as well Shocked ). I had hoped for some by Christmas, but that will not give me enough time to test and evaluate them. Stay tuned,

Good Listening
Bruce

gofar99,

7 years in the making, I count 10 years. What happened during those 10 years it took to make this phono a reality? What road blocks did you over come? I like that you never gave up on this project. Looking forward to this baby of yours.

Hi, what's a few years in developing something. The first of them is in the mail to me as of today. I should know in about a week (some transit time, some listening and some testing) if it is really great or needs more work. All indications are that it should match my prototypes well. They are quiet, and IMO do a great job of rendering music off disks. Stay tuned for more......

Good Listening
Bruce
