 :lol:  thanks "Igor"
Once spring arrives, I'll see if I can have somone make a trip across the border for me, that way  I can have  a set shipped there for pickup.  With the size and weight,  it'd probably b brutal getting them shippied direct

Sorry about the  "hijack"  John,   back to yor topic   !!

I built these thing a LONG time ago for Art.  Yours are the new gen.  I have more ideas, though.  I just can't get to them now.

Email me when you get a chance.
Cool.  I did send an email...

Marty Feldman's face (Young Frankenstein) appeared out of nowhere.  :icon_lol:

It might take a wee bit of planning, but......we'll almost certainly visit our friends in Vancouver by Summer....just a thought.

Will definitely keep that in  mind Michael,  thank you.   And you know,  summer could be a pretty good time for that  mini GTG we talked about... tunes, BBQ , beverages... hmmmmm

I am very happy with the Uber.  I have tried it with the DAC, pre amp, and amp all hooked up (nice improvement) and also just the amp.  I actually like it best with just the amp but that may be due to the fact that I moved everything else to a different outlet a distance away (I haven't checked to see if it is the same circuit or a separate circuit...chances are it is the same). 

Oh, I did do a direct comparison but soon lost interest in taking things in and out to test. I sent a note to Art describing a couple of songs that really stood out as distinct improvements. The main difference was the purity of the tone with the Uber when certain notes were struck was unmistakable (one was a Beth Orton song, Stolen Car, which has some plucked guitar strings that always sounded nice but now they were "right there" the made me look up!).  So after that I just stopped analyzing and started listening...

So I think I need a second unit (perhaps a miniBuss since the DAC and pre amp have pretty good filters built in).  I'm sold!

John,

I think Dave is off on a cruise somewhere listening to great Blues.

Welcome to the 'dark' side. I remember trying with and without about 4 times before I got tired of all the switching back and forth. The difference in SQ with the Uber was astonishing. My system is so much quieter with my UberBUSS. It's been hooked up ever since. I'll be adding a MajikBuss or MiniBuss before too long for a vacation home with VERY noisy power lines.

Congratulations!

Michael

I'm back.  We went on the Joe Bonamassa Blues Alive at Sea cruise and had "almost" too much fun... if that is possible.

Yep, the difference in SQ and micro dynamics that give the "right there" quality that you mentioned is amazing.  Like Emeril says: "sometimes I even amaze myself".   :lol:

Joe is great when he is doing "the Joe B" thing, but he is much better when he just one of the players.  Rock Candy Funk Party was too much fun.  If you don't feel "it" when they are playing, you're dead.  The jam sessions with everyone and Joe sitting in were amazing!

I have to say that the guitar tone monster was Bernie Marsden.  Holy crap, what sounds!!!  More to him than Whitesnake.  Great guy to talk to and just a guy. Pudgy fingers full of music.

I could go on and on, but...  Superlatives confound me right now.  Ana Popovic... What a player/singer and a lovely lady to boot.

We are preregistered for next year.  It will be a 6 day cruise with even more players.

Did I mention J. B. Simo, Robert Randolph, Kirk Fletcher and Josh Smith, Brandon Santini and everyone else?  Or Joann Shaw Taylor, Robben Ford (OMG) and everyone else?

See ya'll there next year?

Wow.

Dave,

You got my attention!  I am seriously considering this...I've been waiting for a "just right" first cruise to go on and have never found it...until now! 

John

P.S. My PRS guitar is the Bernie Marsden signature model...

Bernie is a very cool guy.  Kind, considerate and very funny.  I enjoyed talking with him.  That PRS is a tone monster.  He was playing through a 50W Marshall and 4x12 cabinet.  No pedals, just huge sounds.

I'll see you there!

That is awesome!  And you are right, that Bernie PSR is a tone monster.  I play mine through a Marshall DSL all tube head and a custom 2x12 cabinet no pedals...glad I've got one thing right!

I'm still enjoying the Mongo hardwired Uber very much (Mongo's to the wall outlet and to the IEC on the amp). 

However, I have my power amp on the front wall outlet which is different than my front end.  My source and pre amp are located on the sidewall on a sidewall outlet (such a location choice is a primary benefit of a fully balanced setup, in my opinion).

So I've ordered a second Uber from Dave.  This one will be hardwired to the wall outlet with a Mongo II with three outlets for my front end to utilize. I'm super excited to have the second one in the system in a few weeks!

Best,
John

My second Uber has been shipped!  Should see it by the weekend (Saturday delivery) with any luck.  I am supper excited to have my DAC and pre amp on the Uberbuss with a Mongo II to the wall.   Super excited...

Dave,

The Uber with the hardwired Mongo II and FI-28 plug arrived today!  I just put it in the system and am very happy.  Black background and silky smooth music.  I’ve got my "go to" playlist playing and things sound wonderful.  Thank you…

John
