    Are your big boys just SRS or are they 1.2?
    SRS NO GO 1.2 would be a go for this as well.

    oh well done the road you never know. You end up with the 1.2 1.2TL's you will be set very well with this tranny.

    The last go around there was about 20-25 IIRC. I do not expect anywhere near this time but all who are on the fence should go for it. How many folks over the time you have been here came in asking for one? more than a handful so they do sell if not needed. Still some are now buying seconds and thirds so the pool of people is not nearly as big and it is a pretty good expense but wholly worth every penny.

    If you can't use it for your SRS, perhaps it could be useful infixing the junk electrical system in the C8.
    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.

    Forgive me, but I'm a Dreadnaught newbie, among other things. Help me understand the connections of a Dreadnaught to the SDA system (block diagram). I'm not running monoblocks at this time.

    For my 1C project, after a second, I mean third look, I don't believe my modded 1C terminal cups have the provisions for it. I believe it requires an additional pair of connections (either speaker terminal or neutrik) correct?

    I've read alot about them here on CP, and it sounds very exciting. The last batch run thread was cool! I felt the excitement among those who participated.

    So, for this run, I'm in! :smile:

    Just do it Carlton. Pretty sure it will not be as good of a deal in comparison to the last but you know as well as I do it's money well spent.
  • My wallet is cussing me out right now, because it's kinda empty until I get my tax refund in Late January or early February. So if this goes on as long as the last one did, I might just be able to jump in on this one. I'm afraid to commit right now, because I don't want to and then find out I can't do it.
    The last one WAS fun wasn't it????

    I'll tellya what. Let's wait until Sketchy Craig gets some numbers back from Avel-Lindburg. I am hoping and praying Trump' tariffs do not cause the price to go up too much!

    As far as I know we are in the beginning stages. Yes my thought is to go through January. Face it most just dropped coin for Xmas and we all are not going to die if we don't have one by the end of January not to mention I'd believe most are very understanding thst the more we get the better price we could get.

    I hope this continues to gain steam, I wonder if the 1000va will fit in my existing 800va enclosure.
