Dear Schalk, I was planning to send a great thank you to you, for the great service you have done to the Home Theater power amplifier, but did not get to it yet.

Thank you so much Schalk and to your assistant also, for a service well done!! :clap: :clap: :clap: Thank you for your painful but dedicated effort in building this wonderful stunning power amplifier for me  :2thumbs: :groovy:

Yes Nirvana, this is a for keeps family heirloom, definitely.

To Kalith, it sounds like a choir of angles signing. Stereo or surround sound, equally stunning. The greatness of it is, that it sound stunning at lower volume too, obviously amazing at higher volume. I haven't tried maximum volume yet, scared to get the neighbours upset and the police at my door.

The ultimate of pure and detailed musical reproduction, with soul.
Envision your goals, believe in them, work at it and it will happen

A little further down Memory Lane.

This was a special order by another distinguished gentleman, I guess around 2001. It came with a matching Black Widow power. The pair still lives and these days they do duty in a dedicated listening room become lounge on a guest farm in the Grootvlei area close to Heidelberg.

Came in for a service and left today to carry on regardless

Ai Schalk!  Why do you have to do this to me  :notworthy:
I've been trying to twist that arm of yours for at least two years to build another one   :clap:
NO luck though  :sd:

It seems to work quite well as a mirror.
Mirrors are worth something to people who need mirrors  ;) ;)
I think I recall a conversation around that time...
