Forevertron II

I get to cross another thing off my bucket list and that is a visit to Dr. Evermore's Forevertron Sculpture park.

OK you must be asking what does an Altec 1803 have to do with art?

and if you look a bit closer this odd bird has a 288 up its bum.

 Audio folk can rest assured they come from the stereo era but tend to have channel separation of 100 feet or more.

The above birds come from the Altec genus and the more pedestrian brass genus was also well represented.

Finally the ultra-rare unobtanium WE genus also makes an appearance.

alas.... unlike the lowly Altec's, the WE sample is sans 555

LR Phono - with official seal of approval

so we have been working like mad on this:

and listening to a gazillion subtle changes... 
like 49% versus 80% nickel cores in the 
outputs... guess which one sounded better?  

and then when grabbing the output tubes we 
noticed something on the bottom...

yep... so the new LR Phono is officially ready.... 
seal of approval and all... 

and this is happening in the Hudson Valley... just bonkers!
