    Just searched..... and this might explain it. From the Pontiac Aztec Wiki page: “The Aztek was styled under the direction of Tom Peters, who would later design the Chevrolet Corvette (C7).”

    Bob Lutz’s quote “looks like an angry kitchen appliance” on the Pontiac Aztec comes to mind.

    Definitely the worst view of the car. Butt fugley.

    Here’s a profile shot. Chevy certainly borrowed the styling ques and proportions in this view from the Ferrari 458.

    The all new midengine Corvette Stingray was introduced yesterday. Set to go on sale next year with a “base price under $60K”. 495hp naturally aspirated V8. 8 speed dual clutch automatic transmission only. 0-60mph in under 3 seconds. Hope they get the QC worked out on this. The Caddy ATS-V I bought in 2016 was a lemon that the factory bought back.

    Let’s see if this works here. A 360 degree panoramic shot from Chuck Yeager’s seat in the Bell X1 https://www.airspacemag.com/articles/chuck-yeagers-cockpit-180964968/ Edit: Doesn’t appear to. Go to the link.

    You can substitute Dale Vishay RN60 series for KOA Speer MF1 resistors. __________________________________________________________________ Have had my CFAe amp powered up for over a week now and things have settled in. Tried out my IEM SR-003mk2 with new super comfy ear pod attachment and covers. These ear pods and amp together are a surprisingly sweet sounding combo.

  9. And now for something completely different. Amazing virtuosity and talent with these young ladies.

    No problem, Jose. Just having a very bad day on my end, and seems like I took it wrong.

    I’m drinking a beer ATM. So witch is your favorite KG all Solid State Amp?😊

    current feedback electrostatic amp

    I only listened between the CFA and GG with my SR-009. I like the sound of the GG quite a bit better. Can’t say where everything sits on an absolute scale. So I am fair, but not as experienced as others here. That’s all.

    current feedback electrostatic amp

    That answers a lot for me. I have a breadboarded CFEA up and running and was not warming up to the sound of it. I set it aside and went back to my GG, much prefering it as my daily amp. Maybe I need to play the CFEA for hours as you suggest to really retrain my ears.

    Technical Assistance/Advice Thread

    Maybe a cold solder joint on the PCB between the terminal block and the base pin of the input JFET? Try reflowing the connections on the -I side that distorts.
