You guys are taxing oom Schalk too much. Take in consideration that such requests have immense ripple effects behind the scenes. Last time I checked he did not go to Hogwarts...

I was obviously being tongue in cheek about the faceplate, the phono stage had already been suggested.  And I reckon that as the electronics wizard he is, he didn't go to Hogwarts as he already graduated!

Wow,special order time!  :rubhands:
On top of the simple requests by ArtiB,I'd like the ff:

1. 2x Fully Balanced lines.
2. Sub input
3.Built-in MM/MC phono,with variable load settings
4.A two tone,Genesis style faceplate,with my name in brushed Platinum on the top RH corner.
Any other 'extras',like cryo valves thrown in,would be a nice gesture!  ;)
And pleease go easy on the price?

 :point:  :point:
Ja Dewald,lykmy party ouens dink Schalk toer d wereld vol en bou so een 'ampie' 'n maand,net omdat hy hou van d nice 'hobby'!  :nutter:

No offense,Arthur,but the man is incredibly busy,ALL the time,especially Mon- Sun...
But yes,I have to agree that a built-in phono wld off course be great!  :thumbs:

Thanks Willem, Thanks Guys, all of you.

It takes a while to get something like this sorted properly, does not just happen on a whim. It takes toil and experiment. Happily I can say this unit has now prompted me to take a wide eyed look at the Gen Pre again. And so begins the next upgrade which actually is almost ready, just a matter of populating the first board. A good klap here and there and the ALL NEW Gen Pre shall give its first plaintive cry...

Werner, daai sculpture is die nuwe Black Widow Pre my maat. Gaan nie werk in jou stelsel nie tensy jy jou Predator wil uitgooi  :rubhands:
