I'm going to finish this up here since all the old stuff will be lost, and the good stuff will be happening now anyway. Lamination begins tomorrow, and while that stuff is clamped and drying the plate amp will be mounted. It was a choice of closet mounting it out of sight, building a box to mount it under the HT center ( there's a stud right in the middle of that area, and plumbing for the bathroom sink too), or somewhere else. It's too cool looking to hide away and a box, naah. Al suggested under the wing of the blue note, and that's where it will go. Pics coming. I wonder when it will stop feeling weird posting here, even though lots of friends are here?
