Let us know how this goes! I've been eyeing one of these kits for a few months now but haven't taken the plunge.

I saw a couple that worked just as well as the real thing in NY. The case is the wild card. Theres a separate person who makes them, one was great the other didn't seem to come together right. It might have been a prototype though...
It'll probably come together slowly, but I'll report back.

Electrical Audio Custom Rack blew a fuse.

This is a repurposed Allison rack I built to house a bunch of Urei 509 eqs we fell into. I built it in 2001? Holy shit. I'm getting old. It's API 500-like but with more width for the Urei modules, ±18v, 5v and 48v supply rails. I built one John Hardy/Jensen style preamp for it, and thought I'd build more (why there's a 48v rail for phantom power).
Anyway, the phantom regulator died, and blew the fuse. I replaced it with a modernized design.
