We have no idea who did it so whether it was intentional or an accident is unclear.  It was one of the few moments that the amp was left unattended.

What about EMF? I heard that we don't really know if hybrid cars with there hugh batteries have a negative effect on health.

 

I bet people with electrostats are getting some EMF near their head.

 

Electro Magnetic Frequencies.

It stimulates the grey matter and makes us more intelligent. Listening to Stax phones since 1975 has increased my hat size.

Really?  Water could have gotten into the T2 and fried some parts, or if enough hit a hot tube it would probably crack. Good thing none of that happened.

 

But, too bad it got into the 007's.  Ouch!   I assume it was an accidental spill and not vandalism?  Did the guy who spilled the water own up to it and pay for the 007's to be repaired?

 

Can you buy electrostatic driver insurance?  Ha- maybe that gecko in the TV insurance ads can provide it....
