    I really meant order the 10 then sell the 7 or 8 for the cost of the 10, refund later when 2 or 3 more people buy the remaining. I did the math though and probably too pricey that way in the short term. In other words, dumb idea. :)

    Avantgarde horns, 300b tubes, thats the kinda crap I want... :D

    Please include me for one Avel Lindberg 1000VA isolation transformer.

    I'll use it to upgrade the 600VA transformer I'm now using with my SDA SRS1.2a speakers, and I'll use the 600VA with my SDA 1Cs. (By the way, the 600VA with the SDA SRSs produces dramatic results. I test only with my ears; I don't have the technical skill or instrumentation to do a more scientific job.)

    Please just let me know how and when to pay for it.

    Thank you for taking on this project.

    Hey there, great news! You're number 8, so we're still waiting for 2 more to join before we proceed with anything so no money changes hands yet. Sit tight and watch this thread, and if you know anyone else who wants one, point them this way.

    The buyers that committed to this purchase May need to house the transformer inside of "something" . . . . Larry? would you consider the task?

    From first hand experience, I can tell you that Larry's work is second to none . . . . If Larry commits, put me down for thrice!!

    btw, nspindel, I would recommend "bumping" this thread every 2-3 days to make sure everybody is aware of the group buy . . . just a thought, AND thank you for your diligence . .

    Well, he said "may" :)

    GlennDog, let me make sure I'm understanding you correctly - if Larry is willing to do a run of the enclosures then you would want three transformers, but if Larry is not doing enclosures you don't want any?

    I have 2 enclosures, but in order to move the AL-1000VA purchase to the next level, i'd be willing to ante up another. My motivation is the rave reviews that compliment BOTH grounded and Non-Common grounded amps. It's a No-Brainer . . .

    To summarize; I would like 3 . . AL-1000VA Dreadnoughts and one enclosure (Ring Master willing) TY in advance Larry!!!!!!!!!!

    Ok... but I'm still confused. Are you in for 3 of these of these either way? I don't know if Larry is making enclosures or not, at this point I'm just trying to figure out if you definitely want three not. Is your order contingent on Larry doing the enclosures?

    I would like Two AL-1000VAs FOR SURE . . .

    IF Larry is so kind to work his magic, I would take 3 AL-1000VA with a case, as I have 2 cases already

    So, I am in for 3, ONLY if Larry is making cases, otherwise, just 2 AL-1000VA

    Yes , the 3rd Dreadnought purchase would be contingent on Larry being so kind . . . .

    Well, you'll be the one who will need the c-note :)

    The good news here is that even if you only want two, that makes ten so we've got ourselves a group buy!!!

    Ok, great. I'm sure the shipping will be extra for you, I will investigate. I believe we are now at 9. One more, then I start pinging people for money!

    Dammit, I know I'll be kicking myself if I don't get in on this while the getting's still good. Although now I'll have to start shopping for another pair of dreadnought-compatible SDA's in case anything ever happens to my SDA2B's. :) Count me in for 1 if you're still looking for someone to round out the group buy.

    Yes, that's correct. I've emailed AL on Thursday, inquiring what the extra postage will be if one unit is being sent to the Netherlands, at which point we'll be ready to finalize the order. I have not heard back yet. I will clear my PM box now, so can everyone please PM me their email addresses, and then we'll communicate that way from here on. I'll let you all know where to paypal to. If I don't hear from anyone with email addresses in the next few days, I'll come chasing, fear not!
