    One thing I've noticed from this thread, compared to back a few years in the former Member Showcase. TT's, a lot of Vinyl going' on here!

    Current Set-Up:

    Living room setup. Rouge Cronus is hiding behind the right speaker.

    Love that Scout. Almost picked one off CL for $1450 but hesitated and it was gone.

    Is the weight of those amps balanced or lopsided? The biggest issue with handling the Evolution 845 is that almost all of that 120 lbs is in the back of the amp with the transformers. Handles would've been nice too.

    I don't remember mine being lopsided so much as just being back-breaking heavy. I didn't or couldn't use the handles and I lifted from the bottom of the amp with one hand on the left rear corner and one on the right front corner. I had to use the same method once more to as I didn't trust the stands they were originally on.

    The GAS Ampzilla is an asymmetric load to pick up/carry/move. :blush:

    ...AND THAT, my friends, is the glue that holds it all together. ^^^^^^^^

    Yup. I've got more Polkies in my phone than everyone else combined, with a tight second being all my doctors lol...

    Met Polkies in IN, IL, TX, IA, and maybe a few other places lol..... Shared a few beers and tunes with the same. All good people...

    I've sold gear to Polkies nationwide, I've held gear for Polkies, and helped Polkies buy gear lol......

    Speaking of, Russ has decided that Ampzilla needs to be stored at his Midwestern warehouse in Iowa...right Russ? o:)

    We're talking Great Regular Flavor Ampzilla, not the A2k...
    the latter were monoblocks and (I'm guessing, here) probably pretty symmetrically laid out inside.

    Her she is, from behind, after doffing her maillot ;) One may kind of get an idea of her asymmetry.
    Does this transformer make my chassis look big?

    That's a ridiculously cool setup you have there Micah! I've been on this forum since '04 and I've never owned a pair of Polk Audio SDA speakers. You are cooking with gas!

    Thanks!

    I’ve been having a bit of an issue with turntable rumble. :confused: But I've gotten it mostly taken care of, so that’ll hold me over til I get a subsonic filter. I may also get some isolation pads. :smile:
