ideas are great and all, but a pop-up glass enclosure with tubes in it? Simple? Have you designed electronics before? Sketches?
...and this pop up glass case makes more sense, in terms of added cost, than the headphone amp and/or the phono stage?
Note that many of us haven't seen the new integrated, so other than imagination, we don't know what you're talking about. Based on Dan's comments, it seems like he was waiting to reveal details about his
product here following Axpona...but you've decided that's your job?
You understand this is his, paid, site sponsored, space on AC, right?
