    The seller actually used an old ratty stained blanket as the packing material? What the hell.

    It actually worked pretty well and the amp came in unscathed....but yeah....pretty cheesy. The blankets smell a bit off so they were immediately banished to the garage and will be used for deck staining duty. Of course the bulbs in the meters are burnt out but Im guessing thats a pretty easy fix. Heres a better pic:

    Nice integrated. I was going nuts for those things for a while when I was eaten up in vintage. Never did manage to nab one, though.

    Too bad you cannot source a silver faced DOA receiver front to match your new amp. Peace. D

    sure it has a flat response, and sure it has a lot of detail, and yes, it has good and clear lows. But is it enjoyable to listen to? Does it make you grin ear to ear? That’s what really matters.
    Seen somewhere on AudioKarma (I think)

    How much for the fetish blankets?
  • DaveHoDaveHo Posts: 1,824
    At least those offer more padding than the crusty bed sheets I one received an amp packed in.

    Thanks....I already slept with those blankets!! One of the channels goes in and out in stereo mode but works in mono mode. I did find a place that can look at it around here, so Im waiting for a partial refund from the seller at this point.

    Is the fetish blanket thing like a Three Dog Night in aboriginal Australia, or is it more like Linus and his blanket?

    ... or is it something I'd be better off not googling with SafeSearch "off"?

    ;)
