    Stereo Sound in 1940's "Fantasia"

    Great article! I hadn't seen it in forever and I watched it on Laser Disc last night. Definitely stereo, lots of dynamic range, spooky high fidelity for 1940. Even heard the drums and double bass on my subwoofer.

    I don't think Stephen was banned on TH, he just left. Craig was banned. It's good hearing that Stephen is still kicking, with recent events and all.

    Maybe his amp blew up? Doubtful. I've abused tubes for many years and haven't burned the house down yet...... I've always wanted to build a transmitter-tube SE amp. The plate voltages are kinda scary though. Ended up building a 300B SE amp instead.....
