Here are the facts, I paid in full and brought this group buy to the 15 unit price, at which point several others determined it was worth it for them to join in. The one mistake I made was allowing you to be a middleman in this transaction. If I had paid avel-lindberg directly we wouldn't be here right now. When you took it upon yourself to decide who is worthy and who is not you crossed the line. Your desperate need to justify to yourself the money you have spent on magical audio cables drove you to vilify me for disagreeing with you. Yes I called avel-lindberg and requested that they honor the original purchase group. First come first serve. You don't work for avel-lindberg and you don't dictate to whom they sell to.

This tranny was discovered by Darque Knight when doing some research on how to build a better Dreadnaught. Avel-Lindberg had made a production run of these special audio grade transformers for an audiophile amp manufacturer and had a couple left over, one of which DK purchased and built a Dreadnaught with. Turned out to be a marked improvement over what he had been using, and he reported his findings to the forum.

Classy move nevertheless, and will serve as a reminder to anyone who thinks otherwise.

Their 800VA tranny is an off the shelf item and also brings a big improvement when used as a Dreadnought. Not quite as much as the 1KVA one, but close. Also, a little cheaper

Drumminman, Westmassguy, HI! Thanks for that info. I haven't had time for much in the way of hobbies, between work and the wife having an MI last year right before Christmas. I'm just getting around to finishing up the center channel I was working on at the time.

It's going to be a Nelson Pass F5 amplifier. It's my first real DIY electronics project. I've been doing research on it for quite some time, so everything should go smoothly. I've been collecting parts for the past couple years and now I'm close to start making progress on it.
Same with my SDA-2B's. I've got your rings, gimpod pcb's, RDO-198 tweeters, Sonic Craft caps, Mills resistors, Jantzen coils (waiting for a custom order to arrive though) to replace all the stock ones, and the Avel Lindberg isolation transformer once it arrives. I've been collecting these parts since 2011 haha. I'm pretty excited to get started soon.
