    As an aside, is there any truth to the rumour that Tesla is going to start installing monoprice vacuum tube amplifiers in their top-end vehicles?

    They must have outsourced parts of their power supply to Monoprice, by the looks of things.

    Most likely too, a blind guy wrote the software for the auto pilot. :)

    Any updates Doc?
    Just in case, everyone dial "91" so we can be ready to call if needed.

    nothin' yet -- but I haven't checked the tracking number recently.

    Remember, we don't live in the middle of nowhere... but we can see it from here.

    update -- looks like it's s'posed to be here tomorrow. Further details as events warrant.

    Exciting times.

    Have you decided what speakers you're going to try with it first? Maybe those AMT Daytons?

    I'd start with some super cheap Sonys so you dont cook something, as this is the first time its ever been plugged in.

    Yeah I suppose, it could be DOA or something and take out whatever speakers are hooked up to it.

    Check out the Daytons, they're only $50/pair : https://www.parts-express.com/dayton-audio-b652-air-6-1-2-2-way-bookshelf-speaker-with-amt-tweeter-pair--300-651

    No, they're quite reasonably priced -- they are not well made, but they sound pretty decent. The little "AMT" tweeter is very pleasant-sounding, IMO.

    The poly-cone woofers are kinda cheezy, though.
