It is really odd how some things happen. I was debating if I should give the update of what is new and I even went as far as trying to take a picture.

JJ's mention of the switch to the aa strain gauge has me inspired to let another cat out of the bag. I will be ordering up parts for a simple pentode riaa that we have been dreaming about and it is time I revisit the traditional riaa camp to keep myself grounded.
