1957 Leak Ad Showing New Designs

 50 or 25 or 12 watts. I'd go for the 12 watts.
 I really like the clean layout and build. Don't think I can do that yet.

Mad Scientist Toshi Kurashima

I was trolling youtube for educational videos on tubes and tube amps when I found these youtube videos. The first video is long but it really gets cooking half way through.
The diamond is a little over the top but hey they are rolling their own tubes and tube amps.

You can check out his work here.

70's Southern Blues 45's Score Including RL Burnside

 I may have paid too much for these 45's but I really wanted to hear them today. High Water Records was funded by the NEA and was a division of Memphis State University. The mastering was done at Ardent studios.

I barely recognized RL Burnside.

PWK And Hiroaki Hibino Phono Cartridges

There must be a good story here. Japanese cartridge designer Hiroaki Hibino partnering with PWK on cartridge design. According to Jim Hunter Klipsch historian there was also a Klipsch turntable but no known examples exist.

Silver coated copper wire, cobalt magnets and your choice of multiple cantilevers. If you see one for sale just buy it and send it to me 8-)

Speaker Of Unusual Size - Hornmassive By Matt Hope

 Sculptor Matt Hope spent six months designing and 14 months building Hornmassive and it is impressive. I do not tire of looking at it. This is a giant mobile mono system. WOW! I'd love to hear this one.
