I have a bottlehead single ended experimental amp that was just delivered which I have no use for at present.  I have the c4s upgrade boards for it also.  I will absorb shipping and sell it for what I paid for it $369.00 plus $50.00 for the c4s boards.  The kit box was opened for inspection, but  none of the individual parts packages were opened.  As many of you know these kits take several weeks to several months to order directly from Bottlehead.  I would also consider a DAC in trade.

I'm not going to power speakers with it.  MGM called and they are doing the 17th remake of Frankenstein and needed some period correct electronics for the reanimation scene.  DLB

Period-correct electronics??? Frankenstein was written in 1818 and the story is set in that time period. The vacuum tube was invented in 1906.

I think he meant to say a remake of Universal Studio's 1931 Frankenstein.  For most people, that movie with Boris Karloff as the monster, is  Frankenstein the movie.

The original MOVIE may have been produced in 1931 but the STORY is set in an earlier time. I seem to recall Dr. Frankenstein living in a castle that is lit by candles, not incandescent lights, driving a horse and carriage, not a Duesenberg, and the angry villagers running around with flaming torches, not flashlights. If the doctor’s laboratory was wired with electricity necessary to run vacuum tube-based equipment, why did he have to wait for an electrical storm?

Most castles aren't wired for gigavolts necessary to jumpstart the monster...hey work with me here. I'm trying to get tubes into a monster movie. They had jacobs ladders, tesla coils and I'm going for artistic effect here.

How about Bela with a radar screen to hunt down victims or Lon using some Brylcreem.

Oh well, back to the drawing board.

The castle needn't be wired for gigavolts. If Dr. F. had vacuum tube technology he had more than enough tech to produce gigavolts on demand.

Wow! My post regarding Frankenstein was a joke.  I actually am going to use the amp to drive speakers.  Its a good thing I didn't suggest Custer should have used a Gatling gun at Little Big Horn,  the techno-historians would be going crazy.  By the way Mary Shelley wrote the Frankenstein story as a socio-political statement/warning abut the dangers of utilizing technology before we really understand the long term consequences of what we are doing.  Still a pretty timely message.
