is that one of those high-end hi-fis where the audiophiles say stuff like, "being in the room with it adversely affects how it sounds"?

It comes with a metal mesh-like box that fits over the top when operating. And the tubes all have L.E.D. lights that come on in sequence to show the amplifier is powering up.

You just stare at it for hours on end and marvel!

That's too many lights for me. I can't handle that many glowing things.

Koss Portapros don't need a preamp therefor no one needs a preamp.

There will be a preamp somewhere in the chain, whether analogue or digital.

Oh I see what you mean. I meant that the only thing that I would need a separate device to amplify would be my record player and that's plugged directly into my PC.

Portapros rule.

I have to say I'm like Ben, I have a strange attraction to VU meters.

Well muchachos, I've been a bit absent lately and will probably be until about Wednesday. This past weekend was spent seeing Jack White in SF and last night was Soundgarden and NIN. Now I'm off to Big Sur and Carmel for two days.

Take care and don't burn down the forum please.

pedlulz arrived

bass big muff pi- pretty nice, seems to have a good bit less fuzz than my biyang fuzz (i think it must have a weird pot taper), but sounds good and the extra switch options are handy

harley benton bod-1 (rebrand of beta aivin bass od1, which is a clone, or at least "inspired" by, the boss odb3)- not bad. knobs are a little stiff (don't quote that out of context ). sounds more like a lightish fuzz to me than an OD. and a bit bright (most boss dirt pedals are). but fairly wide range of tones available with the clean blend option. for ~20 it's not bad.

digitech synth bass wah- sounds pretty nuts but I think the battery is maybe dying in it, and I couldn't find the current draw so I was scared to use it with my PSU Stinkfoot says the guitar version pulls 110mA (and my supply is good for 120), so that's a bit close for me to chance it. I'll email digitech and see if they give me a straight answer. failing that i'll try to measure it myself if i can be bothered.

Well I"m back and I'm glad to see the forum is still in one piece. We had a nice time in Carmel and got to check out this place. http://www.rumbleseatmusic.com/

They had some really nice basses that would have absorbed several months of my current mortgage.

And we did our usual stop at Recycled Records in Monterey. http://recycledrecords.net
Now one more day off and then back to what composes reality around here.
