    I have know fear of spiders or snakes. Used to have a bunch of stuff like that when I was a kid in my bedroom in terrariums....but 25yrs ago or so, I was a service contractor for ADT commercial in Houston. The purchased another local companies accounts that had a bunch of restaurants in not so nice neighborhoods.

    Roaches in some of these places were so bad, they had ate the control boards in the security panels and motion detectors. Even if pest control came by there place that's where they'd hide. Opened several alarm panels that would have 300+ roaches in them covered in [email protected] that would gross me out

    It was really uncanny. I had to do a double take when we drove by. We stopped, and the Mrs took this picture. At first I though she was in trouble (sick) but when we returned she was gone. Thank goodness! :smile:

    And as many as 6 in the winter. Things start getting a little too cozy at that level of fluff.

    No, I got distracted by other shinier things -- and also by the vagaries of real life :(

    Talk about a minimalist preamp design! Damn!

    It appears not level in the front. Missing/mismatched foot?

    Asked the seller for more info and this is what they sent me:

    "Thank you for your note. The preamp is, indeed, an original design and hand made by the designer. It is a very elegant design in its simplicity. As you can see from the photos the tube complement chosen for the design avoids the use of the commonly used 12AX7 and or 12AU7. Instead, the design uses NOS Tungsol 6SN7GT/VT-231 and 12SL7GT/VT-289 for superior clarity and resolution. They are also much more quiet than the usual small signal tubes mentioned above. Before shipping to the buyer, will have the unit completely checked to make sure the unit will perform as per spec. The unit sounds marvelous. Used it sparingly in a second more intimate system. The midrange is holographic, the bass is clear and natural and powerful. The highs are feathery and delicate with that ease of sound music has in real life. It will also go fully guaranteed with free shipping domestic US.

    Thank you for your interest."

    Thanks Drew.

    This rack is well made for sure!
    The glass shelves weigh a ton on this. Especially the top one. :o
    The joints are connected by heavy-duty allen screws!

    I picked my first one up off the side of the road. Somebody tried to put one together, right after Christmas it was, and attached one leg upside down. LOL, There's a little tag on the front posts that say TOP^ on each one, at their tops on the inside. I guess the person got flustered within 5 minutes and put the box, parts, shelves( still wraped in packing paper too) and INSTRUCTIONS out on the roadside. It was from a beachfront house too. I had a couple of co-workers that wanted to pay me $$ for that first one. I had to place it at my car so everybody saw it that afternoon while I made more deliveries.

    Just one of those stuck of luck and fate moments. :D B)
