Bottlehead: Crack-a-two-a build

'Tis the season for building stuff. BH ran a sale, I'm addicted - it all worked out.

So far so good. Heater tests all pasted. Just waiting on a couple of nylon standoffs that were missing.

    Nice! <3
    Most people just listen to music and watch movies . I am glad to be a part of a select group that tries to take our auditory and visual senses to a higher level: we EXPERIENCE them.... GOT SDA?... Got TFM ?

    Usually around holidays. Next one might be Easter. It's kind of randomized. I go this one on the Thanksgiving sale.

    Not many.. I’ve not tackled (nor intend to) the large pre and power amps. The also have a mid range pre and power that don’t interest me.

    This is #12 or 13... I admitted to being addicted.
