Behold the packaging job on this baby, and the transformation of a pile of old janky blankets into a beautiful integrated amplifier:

    The seller actually used an old ratty stained blanket as the packing material? What the hell.

    Better check it for bed bugs....
    The Gear... Carver "Statement" Mono-blocks, TriangleArt Reference SE with Pass Labs Xono Phono Preamp, Walker Precision Motor Drive, ClearAudio Goldfinger Diamond v2 cartridge and Origin Conquerer Mk3c tonearm, Polk Audio "Signature" Reference Series 1.2TL with complete mods, Pass Labs X0.2 three chassis preamp, PS Audio PerfectWave DAC MkII, Pioneer Elite SC-65, Oppo UDP-205 4K Blu-ray player, Sony XBR70x850B 4k, Polk audio AB700/800 "in-wall" surrounds.

    Saying that it's "too hard" to pursue your dreams is no different than admitting to yourself that you are too lazy to achieve them.

    It actually worked pretty well and the amp came in unscathed....but yeah....pretty cheesy. The blankets smell a bit off so they were immediately banished to the garage and will be used for deck staining duty. Of course the bulbs in the meters are burnt out but Im guessing thats a pretty easy fix. Heres a better pic:

    Looks like one hel-l of a pack job?
    2 channel: Anthem 225 Integrated amp; Parasound Ztuner; TechnicsTT SL1350; Vincent PHO-8 phono pre; Marantz CD6005 spinner; Polk SDA2BTL's; Cables ZU Mission IC's, SC and power cords, all into a PS Audio Dectet Power center.

    All TV's sound enhanced by Polk Magnfi Mini's.

    Other; S60'S, M10 series II, M7C's, Hafler XL600 amp, RB-980BX, Parasound HCA-1500 amp , P5 preamp, all in storage. All speakers have had crossover rebuilds, resulting in a small fortune invested in Sonicaps, and tweeter upgrades.

    Nice integrated. I was going nuts for those things for a while when I was eaten up in vintage. Never did manage to nab one, though.

    Too bad you cannot source a silver faced DOA receiver front to match your new amp. Peace. D

    I've always thought the goal of high-end audio was not to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Turn that darn music down' but to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Tell your friends to go home and you can practice later this week'.

  • DaveHoDaveHo Posts: 2,151
    At least those offer more padding than the crusty bed sheets I one received an amp packed in.

    Thanks....I already slept with those blankets!! One of the channels goes in and out in stereo mode but works in mono mode. I did find a place that can look at it around here, so Im waiting for a partial refund from the seller at this point.

    Is the fetish blanket thing like a Three Dog Night in aboriginal Australia, or is it more like Linus and his blanket?

    ... or is it something I'd be better off not googling with SafeSearch "off"?
