    I know there are more of you out there sitting on the fence. However, based on all of the feedback I have been reading recently in this thread, this is really a must have for any SDA owners.

    From a bang for the buck standpoint, you probably get more bang for the buck from a 1KVA dreadnaught than from $500 worth of interconnect upgrades.

    Larry, what about some sort of Polk/Dreadnaught logo on the front of the case?
    Good music, a good source, and good power can make SDA's sing. Tubes make them dance.

    First off it would help to have the correct spelling, Dreadnought.

    Someone who has been here longer than Steve has to step up and take over taking the orders from everyone.
    If no one else does I'll take it over,but I can't get one until I get my tax refund in February.

    nought
    nôt/
    noun & pronoun
    variant spelling of naught.
    synonyms: nothing, nothing at all, no point, no purpose, no effect;

    It can be spelled either way! or even spelt either way. ;)

    Dreadnought is correct because the man that first coined it spelled it that way.

    Once things get squared away with who is buying, I think we need to start a fresh thread for the purchase of the tranny and a separate thread for cases. Right now we have 2 old threads going, and it's confusing.

    Well, that thread is getting a bit muddled up too.

    When we are ready to buy, I think a new, fresh thread for the sale of units communication needs to be started. I don't always have time to wade through pages and pages of commentary looking for specific information.

    It's just a suggestion and one that had worked well in the past. I'll leave that up to whomever decides to run the buy.

    Please mark me up for a case as well, SpeakOn connector openings if there's an option.

    Rings for a 1.2TL and a 3.1TL if consideration is being given for a run.

    Collecting parts for total make overs on both, might as well go all in if a window of opportunity is opening up.

    Toolfan - do you have thicker metals to use with your cases?

    Thanks!!!!
