    Judy at EC let me know that my amp is built and burning in. This may be true of other amps, though Marv would need to confirm that. The holdup now, is shipping crates - which may or may not be ready by Christmas.

    Yup, we didn't feel comfortable with the padding of the sides of the shipping boxes. Looking into increasing density of the foam, double-boxing, etc. I'll be in the lab for a few days next week. We should get things moving a bit quicker.

    Marv, could you comment on the SQ differences between the Monolith and Tribute interstages? Thanks

    That'd be awesome Marv - It's be great to have them (a few) by Christmas; or at least the week after.

    Judi of EC reached out a little while ago; my Studio will ship tomorrow! Long wait, I'm excited to actually hear it. I imagine at least a few others will be shipping very soon too - Marv will need to confirm or not.

    My Studio shipped yesterday - should land first half of next week. Has anyone else's shipped?

    What's your tracking number? Do you know the name of the truck driver? Post that too. And when it lands in a major facility, we'd love to hear about it. :p

    Excellent. This plus the VPI should sound great at the meet. I'll bring some good vinyl.

    I know these are very neutral, but how much effect does rolling the tubes have? How much more 'tubey' can you make the Studio sound, if you roll in some bloomier or wetter tubes?

    Adam says it sounds phenomenal on his Marten Heritage Duke 2s. Since they are relatively inefficient, he used his EAR preamp as well.

    I have 7 records in the car right now: some pop, jazz, rock and classical. There should be a ton of impressions after the meet. I'd strongly suggest we hook it up both to an Yggdrasil and the VPI so people have a frame of reference.

    Verdict: 9.7/10. Perfect sound, minus 0.3 points for stock MS Word font usage on the front panel.

    Gawd I adore this place,
    Style matters.

    Maybe @MisterRogers Studio had it's letters rubbed off by excessive USPS handling.

    No kidding. Still in Pacoima. Someone at FedEx has been enjoying the amp over the long weekend.

    Upload some pics when it comes. I wouldn't mind seeing the crate it comes in as well. Pretty please.
