Since you asked. My tiny living room is a mess today. I used a soldering iron for the first time in my life. That thing is hot.

Welcome to arguably the BEST Thread on Head-Fi! :wink_face:

 

Try sending 2359glenn a Private Message with respect to custom build options, price ect. And the 647 pages? Once you get your order in, your enthusiasm will make the reading a breeze!

I needed to replace the stepped attenuators in each of the blocks. They were getting a bit noisy. But I decided that instead of replacing them I would bypass them altogether. Just an experiment. So under Glenn's excellent guidance and instruction, I bypassed each stepped attenuator in each amp by snipping a few wires and soldering a new wire and resistor. I am supercharged that I soldered it all by myself. Well, okay, my neighbor helped by holding the wire. I don't think he ever wants to see me again. I got him nervous. All is done and well though.

 

Now I'm ready to help with parbaked's amp.

It is the best thread on headfi followed closely by the "On a mission to like Jazz" thread. I love that thread.

Very inspiring!

:beerchug:

Our fellow member and former neighbor in the Eastbay 'shipsupt' encouraged me a few years back to pick up the iron and get busy but...I still need to make that purchase. :D

It was $11 at Radio Shack! This is the one I got: http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2062758

 

I tell you, I have more respect for Glenn now that I see how difficult it is to hold solder, an iron, and a beer. J/K no beer involved.

Yes, moar Jazz! :normal_smile : When I received my 2359glenn OTL amp, Jazz selections dominated the playlist as I sat back to get acquainted.

Actually, it wasn't a soldering iron I was waiting to purchase but... courage! :tongue_smile: Never found any on sale, so I guess I should just go ahead and buy the iron and get with it!

 

I too, have more respect for what he's dealing with. Learning to use an iron could go a long way from having to ship stuff back.

This description could easily see me giving instructions from the back seat of a Prius Taxi..."This is the block but I forgot his address, it's the building that has Miles Davis emanating from the window!" :normal_smile :
