Thanks for the input. I don't know as much about cars as I do hi fi, but I am willing to learn new things about either.
Mr Curl stated: "I don't know as much about cars as I do hi fi, but I am willing to learn new things about either."
This statement sums up why you've become one of the most respected designers in the industry. When one stops learning or is not willing to experiment on their own, their lifespan in any industry will be short-lived. The fact that you've been around in this topsy-turvy business for as long as you have and have designed / built the products that you have speaks for itself. The funny thing is that most people probably have NO idea of all of the products, designs and innovative circuitry that your responsible for bringing to us. Just for kicks John, you should sit down some day and compile a list of what you've been involved with and post it for all to see. While it might look like your tooting your own horn, those of us that know some of your history already know how much love and effort you've put into this "hobby" over the years. This would give the newcomers some idea about how far audio has come along within the last 25 - 30 years or so. It might also help them to see just how priviliged they are to be able to communicate with you and others of your ilk on a forum like this. Sean
PS... All Hail John Curl, the designer and originator of the very first TRUE Dual Mono amplifier and many, many other "breakthroughs"....
I might have tempered my post far above this one about cyrogenic cooling, if I had read this comment first. Please take what I said above with the understanding of positive intent to wake a few people up .
