that would be great to meet up at Jays place. I have not been to any of the get togethers, everyone says it is a great time and lots of cool equipment. Personally, tubes are not my thing but I think all stereo stuff is cool. Hope to meet you in Gardner this year! I'll keep an eye out on AK and see if it's still on.
Sadly, you are over a year late. I had a loaner WOPL for a few weeks, summer of last year. I am using a Yamaha A/V amp in two-channel power amp mode, and it has good low-end power. It makes me happy, powering Vandersteen 2C speakers. I am trying to integrate a subwoofer, and that will take time. Twangfest may yet happen this fall - would you like me to keep you updated? It's an AK thing, lots of fun.
Saw one of your post's referencing
Tonganoxie, I live in Bonner Springs but saw your info page showed up as independence mo. Cool to know we are not that far away. Would love to see one of these WOPL'S in action.
