When I was a kid, I always seem to get involved in some project that I got over my head with. The net result was learning. It wasn't always pleasant and sometimes found myself in a place that I did not imagine nor expected to go. But I did remember how I got there.

I suppose I should set my sights a bit higher; but find it hard to turn down a respectable challenge. Since the cost of that amp isn't going to allow for a cheap solution - as money doesn't grow on trees and is a prime factor - then I will have to wait for a better subject/price. If I don't find such, then in the mean time I will have saved enough to get what I need. If I find a Henry 2KD or a fair buy on a AL-80B/82 this next year; then I will go with that.
Thanks for the input and help.
