    Default Lol @ the audio gods

    So I'm waiting on shipment of my amp and preamp as I posted before. The power cable arrived today but not the amp. :P They were shipped on the same day from the same place.

    Hmm. This leads me to believe that maybe your amp and preamp will arive disassembled in separate boxes. Wouldn't that be fun! :p

    The seller was kind enough to ship them separately as he thought the cable might scratch up the unit in transport so he shipped it separately. It's just one of those kooky shipping things. I did tracking and the amp is sitting in the sorting facility. I guess it's easier to throw a 1/2 pound cable in the truck than a 125 pound amp. Hee hee.

    I have no idea how I'm going to get that amp to my second floor.

    Yeah, I'd really appreciate not needing to assemble my amp. I'd probably electrocute myself badly.

    Toxis, it's the Earthquake Cinenova 3. I'm assuming it's got tons of heat sinks in there. ;) I'm hoping I get the other half today and the preamp tomorrow to test everything out.
