You do realize it's much warmer here that in either the US or northern Europe in the winter?  redface.gif
You probably mean North Central & Eastern Europe

Just wanted to add that cryogenic treatment can be very effective for certain materials in some industrial applications, it's not all BS.  The musical transmission part, that's the BS part.

cryogenic treatment is the process of treating workpieces to cryogenic temperatures (i.e. below −190 °C (−310 °F)) to remove residual stresses and improve wear resistance on steels.

The process has a wide range of applications from industrial tooling to improvement of musical signal transmission. Some of the benefits of cryogenic treatment include longer part life, less failure due to cracking, improved thermal properties, better electrical properties including less electrical resistance, reduced coefficient of friction, less creep and walk, improved flatness, and easier machining.

 

In other words, bs.

yeah that's what I meant.

Let's cryo treat Dr. Dre. He'll be a real cool dude then.

 

If we don't thaw him out, no big loss.

Can we start a petition?

Here in California, we are used at gathering signatures for Propositions. I imagine it should be somewhat similar.

Pretty sure you'd get a lot of signatures wink.gif

You and your jokes as always.

Can someone point me in the right direction to a few KGSSHV impressions.  I'm in the baby stages (designing stage) of this amp and really looking forward to this journey I'm about to go on.  Next project - to pair with the KGSSHV I would like to add a Quanghao Dac End as the source.  

 

Mainly how does the KGSSHV compare to the T2, LL mk2, BHSE and the like?

How is the difficulty of removing and replacing my cracked 717 jack?  What steps are involved?  Stax got back to me at about $40 + 15 ship IIRC.

Do you mean KGSSHV?

Do you mean you've never heard of the amp designed by famous actress and stat enthusiast Heather Graham?
