That is the only way it is supposed to be when predators are on the loose.

It could be worse; you could have gotten ants in it.

I've been searching diyaudio for a while and found a couple cases of a "singing amp", but I think the problem in those cases were the caps.

 

Shuguang 6CG7's?  I don't think they ever made any of those.

edit:

 

 

It's just a couple of 80's automotive chip amps (read cheap 80's car stereo) tied to step up transformers.  It's ok for its intended use but high end it is not.  I think I have one of these incoming (can't remember half the crap I buy) so if that is the case I'll post some pics of the circuitry.

Yes that's what I was thinking. Still the monetary impact in my case is greater. But the time impact and overall grossness was less.

First Ants and now cat/dogs , Nature dosnt want SR009 to exist.

Maybe sr009 defy the laws of nature ... looks at graphs and measurements... hmm regular_smile%20.gif

I must confess, I was so pissed that I actually dangled the cat by (the base of) his tail, while waving the broken cable in his face and scolding him, in full view of the dogs.

 

Little *&#@$% didn't mind a bit. He's a pretty tough cat with impeccable taste in cables and a good sense of humor--just my luck.

Lol, maybe I will!

 

He looks just like Meko (2nd one down), except he's not fat.

I love cats, but I couldn't own one in fear of it chewing through my millions of gadget cables. frown.gif

Yeah at least it's not as bad as when I let my pug into the house, the little smug rammed my desktop down with a few of the headphone jacks plugged in broken in half. I don't dare mess with my pug like Grokit did to his cat though.
