    Anyone use induction cooktop? Thoughts?

    It would only happen once! 👿 Easy for me to say, I guess, but who knows what goes on when I'm not around!

    Imagine My Frustration

    I was never one to ask someone to hold my beer... I'd finish it first. Personally, I'm more nervous about the plumbing side of installing a water heater as opposed to the electrical. I even had a "pro" snap off the supply pipe inside the wall and then scramble looking for the main shutoff. I drove up to see a river flowing out of the garage. He was having his assistant cut the old pipe... well duh!

    It'd be great to hear about comparisons with the Havana! The Western Electric was my favorite tube for that DAC.

    Storms? Power almost always rock solid. Sunny days? Outages for hours!

    La Scala bass

    I understand there is a version with a side opening. I’ll have to get the newer version of the plans I guess? It would be nice to have some aiming choices. Not a lot of placement choices but a few anyway

    An Aspirin a Day might not be Okay

    I quit a few years ago since it was tearing up my stomach. It looked like a minefield.
  11. I've heard less than stellar comments about the dual driver version of the BMS 4592 compared to the bms 4592nd-mid (single driver). Do you have an idea what those folks were missing compared to what you are doing? I love the idea of the concentric driver and the Tannoy version in their Canterbury speakers are stellar for sure!

    There isn't a low profile (or tall) version of the F-20 is there?

    La Scala bass

    It has been so long I honestly don't remember the reasons I decided against the F-20. Seems like I was staying away from a tapped horn because of the definite need for EQ but I might need a little either way. I was also going with the low profile version of the THT so there was the placement capability taking up only 18"x18" of floor space.

    Now that I've found them I might put them here for sale. I want to build THT's instead.
  15. You have the SW-12 or KSW-12? I bought the KSW many years ago and it is boomy... that is just what it does. Fine for home theater for the kids but not for music. I'm sure I could improve things if I put in effort on the setup.
