    Excellent, thanks @BlueBirdMusic !
    Group Buy remains open through 1-3-2017 and we are hoping to reach 25. Here's where we stand:

    (22) Committed
    (4) Fence-sitters

    If fence dwellers are closer to committing now that 25 is within reach, please let me know. Anyone else considering needs to jump in now. Great chance to get closer to the best possible sound from SDA's. You want proof? Here's your proof.

    Great work on getting such a big buy together. If I remember correctly, their pricing is a bit odd in that the savings you get per unit by moving from one price point to the next cheaper one more than pays for the next incremental unit in order to get the quantity required to jump to that price point. So in other words, if you get to 24 committed units, there's no point in waiting to get someone to commit to the 25th, because it's cheaper to buy 25 than to buy 24. I haven't done the math in this case, I don't even remember where the price list is. But I do remember that it was working out that way when I did the group buys. It may be the case now as well.
    Good music, a good source, and good power can make SDA's sing. Tubes make them dance.

    How do I get on the list to get one?

    Also is it my understanding that someone is making cases (just add 1000VA here) as a kit?
    Thanks
  • kmeekkmeek Posts: 225
    Sorry! I just saw the previous post about Toolfan66 creating a thread for cases after the 1st of the year.

    Count me in on the transformer list though.

  • Actually come to think of it Craig (@vcwatkins) or Steve (@250GTLusso) can either of you check to see if there is a further discount if we did happen to make it to 30 units?
  • nspindelnspindel Posts: 5,346
    They quote the lead time as 12 weeks, but in really it's been more like 8 when we've ordered in the past.

    Come on fence sitters, get off that fence!
    "Appreciation of audio is a completely subjective human experience. Measurements can provide a measure of insight, but are no substitute for human judgment. Why are we looking to reduce a subjective experience to objective criteria anyway? The subtleties of music and audio reproduction are for those who appreciate it. Differentiation by numbers is for those who do not".--Nelson Pass

    I have a Melody Astro 50 tube integrated. Will I benefit from one of these and have no problems with my amp?

    The right and left channels will be totally isolated so no problem.
    Yes, you will get an improved sound stage. Not just wider but deeper and more detail within the sound stage.

    The consensus has been pretty overwhelming that the DreadnOught will improve overall performance even with common ground amplifiers. So if your SDAs are capable of using the original AI-1, it's a recommended upgrade regardless of what you're powering with. You won't hurt an amp with the isolation transformer.
    Good music, a good source, and good power can make SDA's sing. Tubes make them dance.
