Hi, I am over run with stuff. I have lost count of how many of my prototypes are here. Some I passed on to other folks, but most are still here. I use some regularly though. The very first Oddblocks (the ones with the KT88s and KT77s) went back into my system this week. The original JJ Blue glass KT88s were just fine. Nice sound. The amps do have the current upgrades and the capacitors are copper foil ones not the original PIOs. They worked so well I stuck in a set of EL34s I had (new production Mullards). It made for a really nice set up with the present speakers. Other gear that finds it way into the system are the various line stage preamps and phono preamps. Even so I think I need to build a bigger barn for storage. (it is 12 X 10 feet with shelves and a loft). Is there anyone else out there that has this problem?

Good listening
Bruce

Yeah and living in a flat just under 1000 sq. ft., I have to rip them apart and make other stuff with them.

If they are still good performers and trouble free I have traded them away for other gear and speaker cabinets. But for the most part I also end up ripping them apart and reusing the parts.

Hi Everyone, I reuse many of them, but there are still lots left over. Plus lots of stuff I bought and no longer use. Things like speaker systems (must be at least 10 pair in storage), amps (several brands) and so on. Unfortunately there are few folks interested in audio near here and no organized audio clubs. If there were I would be glad to trade things around. Putting stuff up for sale or trade on the web or even on friendly sites like this one is almost guaranteed to end up with someone unhappy.

Good listening
Bruce
