RAY SAMUELS SILVER RAPTOR IS HERE! (PICS added) - Page 21

I didn't know yours had gold screws in the front plate. Now I'm starting to dig the gold knob.

I would call Ray, but he has amps to build.

"Amps to build, before I sleep...amps to build, before I sleep".

Sorry to report Ray told there me there will be only 1 Gold knob. It was quite expensive to produce as a 1 off piece! (nearly $100.00)

It was part of the special order that there would be only the 1. I think it was cool that Ray let me customise the (fake lol!) #001 (your welcome Billy) it helps set it apart from the Black ones.

Although some may be bothered by it, remember I requested the Silver/Gold Raptor for some time and others can now enjoy the Silver option that may or may not of ever happened had I not begged Ray to death!

One thing for sure Ray had no intention on making Gold knobs for these! and it was the hardest piece to get done the make the amp complete.

Well there's a knob job for you

Actually, I was stealing and manipulating a line from a Charles Bronson/Donald Pleasance 1978 movie named "Telefon" where:

* "the Soviets had set up a network/cell of some 52 agents brainwashed to believe themselves U.S. citizens, using the identities of deceased Americans. At any time they could receive the "code" from Mother Russia - in the form of the final verse of Robert Frost's classic poem "Stopping by the Woods on a Snowy Evening" at which point they would go into automaton mode, each agent specifically programmed to destroy a strategic U.S. military installation".

The brainwash phrase was "Miles to go, before you sleep".

*quoted from Amazon.com

What type of system are you setting up?

Not that it matters just curious!

The Raptor is wonderful!

I was thinking of getting it to go with my current HD650 and then Grado GS1000 or a HD650 replacement (if there is one coming).
