Thanks kindly, sir. It is also very helpful that Glenn is once informative and laid back. Honestly, any of you remember early on in the thread when I posted internal pix of my amp under a Blacklight? Many designers/manufacturers would have been hopping :mad:mad!

 

The next knock on the door came from neither Glenn or his lawyer. Rather, some solicitor from a solar company...

I have the OTL fired up tonight.  She's like a trusty old racehorse, maybe not leading the race anymore but still on the lead lap and full of stamina. 

 

:beerchug:

 

And to think, I just revisited the "X-mod" a few minutes back!

post #5373 of 10672

SO, I do remember.

 

Glenn has been too revealing at times and some have taken advantage of that.

 

Then again that's Glenn a genius that has nothing to hide and loves building great amps.

definitely will be in your queue early next year, just need to recover some camera related spending... 

 

Seemingly, with Halloween just around the bend, something is just not right. And I can't put a finger on it either. First, I thought to myself "What a coincidence!" But as soon as I returned home tonight and logged-in to Head-Fi, a chill fell over the room. No sooner than I read your reply about getting in the queue, the chill was immediate.

 

This is the second time in two seasons where I attempted to join the queue for a custom build. And the designer is Jet-Setting to Greece.

Tough luck SO! It will be my birthday soon and I haven't decided yet what to get myself, I guess it's too late for another Glenn amp too :rolleyes:

But like I told Clayton yesterday, a friend of mine just bought 2 second hand Leben 300s, so maybe something will happen there...

Originally, I had decided to pursue some 300B luv after Glenn's return this summer. And despite being filled with lust, not a moment sooner. I decided early on that I would not submit any commission until the '45amp' shipped! This was a very important development for me - waiting with Xcalibur255 in solidarity was an honor. He made the transition from my WooAudio WA 6 Special Edition to the 2359glenn OTL amp seamless.

 

The past couple of months have been some trying times. Ken Shindo had to source the materials to make my Silver ICs and his vendor has held him up. Reasons unknown. It's a bit painful (understatement) 'cause I paid for everything up front (1st week of July). I could have always done other things with that money and then paid once all was in place. So, I'm suffering Opportunity Costs. :rolleyes:

 

My storied overnight listening sessions shall rise like the dead by Halloween! :veryevil:

Well... you could get :tongue_smile:beside yourself, providing you avoid a lock-out like rosgr63 this summer.

Okay. Not good. First I had to shell out valuable amp spending money to replace a dead computer. That's a little okay because I now have an up-to-date 21.5-inch iMac (the intro model). Now I have sprained my left foot once again and can barely walk. After ER charged me $1,961 ($800 for which I was responsible) for an examination, piece of mind, and a shoe cast, which, thank goodness I kept, I am once again practically immobile.

 

My left foot is now back in its shoe cast again.

:(

 

Ultra- What would you like for your birthday?

Clayton, that is awful! I think I would spend the day with my foot up enjoying my favorite amp and headphones....I hope you will be back to full speed soon!

If you were having an otl amp built what options would you choose? By the way that is an amp built by Glenn. thanks

Freshly baked cookies by L.

 

I don't think there is a list of possible options, it's more like you tell the designer (Glenn) what you would like, or wouldn't. right guys?

Get well soon C! Music (and cookies) will make healing easier.

 

For my birthday I would like my gf to say yes when I finally propose to her ;)

My friends and family keep asking me the same thing, but I wouldn't know. I'm happy as it is (although if someone surprised me with a Leben 300CX, they'd get an extra drink :rolleyes: )

I know she'd say yes. I could just tell by the way she looks at you--and doesn't look at you. Maybe you could ask her on your birthday. She's bound to get you something or make you something. When she hands you your birthday gift, hand her a ring and then ask her. Then I'll be right over in person to congratulate the both of you. :)

:( Sorry to hear about your new reality and wish you a speedy recovery.

post #5385 of 10672

Sorry to hear about the foot Clayton.  I know what those troubles are like.  It's doubling frustrating when it is the same injury in the same place twice, feels like progress isn't being made.  Hopefully things will be back in order soon.
