Thanks for all the positive words guys. I really appreciate it.

Am I a tubist now? Hmm... I'm sure eventually I'll come to miss the solid state "slam" and go back to the 504.

It's nice to have options, though. :)

Thanks again guys. Especially Mike, it means a lot coming from someone with your experience.

I'll make it to the shop with this thing eventually. :)

Thanks.

I've done a couple more since then. A few are still in the works. I really should post that sort of thing on here, but, I figure AK / DIYAudio / DIYTube / AA are all chalked full of that sort of thing. What's one more gonna do?  ???

Yes, you should.   There are local "hang outs" and there are national hang outs.   It's way cooler to see what someone you've actually met has been able to accomplish.
