      To crack or not to crack? That is the question

        Looks like they are running a decent discount. Have fun building it and sell it for most of your money back, if not all.

        I think I have a 6as7g with a loose base but intact vaccum someone can have for 500 pennies.

        Both tubes are good. Still doesn't make up for all the bad ones. You win some, you loose some.

        I saw your post, quite a nice approach. I use 3 of the same type computers, all simple desktops with good parts and they killed my Macs and high end lappys.

      The audio gods demanded a sacrifice, a NOS 1950 WE421 was destroyed. A well worth trade.

      Recabling the K1K is a lot harder than it looks
