Kismet monos soon, I hope!!
« on: 30 Nov 2018, 06:11 am »
Money available, just need to get the courage to say “do it”
I do have an old pair of stratos monos, they are old, short caps, very small transformer, lose power on loud passages and Motörhead music.
Spoke with Klaus tonight. Things are so far a “go” but I need to come up with the proper cash for the upgrade to his newest incarnation of monos.
 I’m hopeful, as the Sunfire Sig is a whopper, but the stratos I have now, do sound better, with tons of lower watts. I think he said I’m at 150-180W at 8 ohm VS the Sunfire 600@8 1200@4 2400@2 etc, gods of power with the carver, but the detail, sound, clarity, emotion is LESS with the SUNFIRE.  THE STRATOS just have a more natural relaxed, crystal tone which is less fatigueing than the sunfire.
  Gggrrrrrrrr
 Why do I have such a cruddy job which pays pennies.
I’ll be in touch Klaus. Thank you.
Talk soon

Ok, I’m good to go, after what........more years I can count, the ball is rolling.
  Should have my amazing amps in a few months.

So looking forward to the amps. Now maybe I can show up my brother and his audio prowess, I’ll have a pair of amps to rival his!!

Finally, finally, I’m so stoked. The hardest part now is the wait.

Sigh- .............
Happy!!

What 7-10 years plus to finally have the money for these, I saved fro a long time, and it finally happened!
In the works!   So stoked, world class mono blocks powering my CV D-9’s.

I’m smiling ear to ear tonight!

Congratulations Articdeth!!  It’ll probably seem like forever and a day before the boxes arrive, but it’ll be worth it!

Will be using my elder B&K pro10-mc as preamp.
My modded cerwin vega D-9's.
And my technics 1200mkII AS TT.

 AND MY BEING MADE ODYSSEY MONOBLOCK AMPS !!!

I am so happy and anxious to go pick them up in a few month!!!
I dont like shipping, i have bad luck!!
Ill drive the three hrs and meet Klaus and pick them up.

I can not believe it has taken me this long to finally get these.
$ is hard for me to acquire, and this purchase has broken me financially for a couple months.
  Ill have to ask my landlord for some lee way.

Oh man am i happy, if they sound anything like the stratos monos i had, ill be uber happy!!

  I loved the sound of them through my back up speakers. Not a good speaker, but they are affordable for me: elder pair of BIC v-630's. Small but great sound.

Inhad to unload a lot of stuff, as were in the process of moving, and was forced to sell a bunch of stuff.
If im lucky my brother will give me his hand me downs. Lucky basta*d

Did i mention im so happy to finally have the ball rolling on a pair of Odyssey monoblocks!!

The wait is the hard part, but it will be worth it.

Thank you Klaus.

 Will be driving to pickup, or maybe if Klaus is available to meet halfway, haven’t asked. Him yet :(
 Most likely we will make a day in Indy, museum, or whatever we decide to do.
 Either way, the long drive will be eternity til home and plugged in.

Hyped to the max!!!!

 You guys have no clue how happy i am to have the ball rollingon odyssey monos
Klaus is fuc!ing amazing to say the least. I mentioned my speakers, and the low ohm dips below 3 Ohm on passages and the like, he saido worries, these will blow your doors off,

 I have been waiting so long for these odyssey mnos, soooooo long
I honestly cant believe the ball is rolling and in a few months, i will have odyssey mono blocks

 Im hoping my brother is jealous, when he gets back home, and fires up his stereo, yaddayadda, yadda, ill ask him to come listen to MY NEW AMPS, My brother has steve mccormack amps and stuff like that, me, never affordable dor me, so these odysseys are a whole notherr level. I have t he best, and will never sell.
  I have fou nd my lifer gear,and am so stoked to finally have it!!

 Odyssey monoblocks. Are mine!!

All mine!!!
Mine!!!

Thank you Klaus.
