The Steel Beast gets its WW2 meters working at last…


David Davis

It really pissed me off, man, that I could not get the blasted meters to do their stuff before. Got it now. And we can even adjust each side arbitrarily.

The new proper meter amps, crafted in a drunken stupor this morning at about 07.00GMT as the old setup was too insensitive for the Transformx outputs that existed in reality (where I decided to take off the meter signal), are linear – which I guess is a slight pain – but we will live with it: it works, and we get sexy meter-deflections at most listening-levels.

The meters do actually zero properly, when it is upright.

Logarithmic amps would be boring and modern, like what you get on VU meters…

But you can have log amps if you want on your copy of this.

The price is still £2,750. Today…

…but if the “economy” recovers, then you will possibly have to pay more, so why not comment now to the effect that you want one?

  1. Oldfashioned guys like me who still split wood by hand are left fuming, “Just WHAT in the Hell IS it?”

    Anyhow, as to “bloogging,” THIS should settle your hash, for awhile anyway…:
