In the 2008 I have a few immediate goals:

1)    Finalize the 6-chennals version of Super Melquiades and integrate it with Macondo

2)    Finalize the “End of Life" Phonostage:

3)    Revise my preamp and rewire my playback with more preamps inputs

4)    Dima and I “invented” a very interning concept how to adopt the invented by Dima Zarathustra’s “Newton Bias” to deal with electricity problem. It is in a way a revolutionary approach and I very much look forward to try it in 2008.

5)    I really would like the APS Purepower people in 2008 talk led out of their liturgic and lazy asses and to fix my damn regenerators. I still feel that if then Purepower unit will be done properly and will not be just faulty-made then it might be a very useful mashie to fight with electricity.

6) To finish and to test “alternative” Sansui TX-1U

7) Review Bidat’s PS

8) Try my new experimental AHFS in context of my RAAL “Water Drop”

9) Re-parallel the drivers in my woofers tower and to drive them with 1.1R, 25W, .5A, 7Hz, amorphous OPT.

The task # 1, 2, 3, 4 and 6 are the immediate and perusable tasks. The task #5 is out of my hands – I have return the faulty board to APS – I have no idea what they do, I think they have also no idea what they do.

The tasks # 7, 8, and 9 are more like strategic task and I would do them “sometimes in futures” and I have general interest in subject but no immediate stimulations to do. They are kind of research subjects that have no guaranteed results.

With the rest of it I would like to get my playback back (after 3 month distraction by 6-ch Melquiades) and to stop “fucking with audio” – it was too long and this think began to get in my nerves.

It is pretty much it as I see now. Happy New year to anyone… Well, not to anyone, OK, you know what I mean…

In the begging of the last year I outlined what I would like to do with my audio in 2008. Let sop a brief summation.

1)    Finalization the 6-chennals version of Super Melquiades and integrate it with Macondo was done

2)    The “End of Life" Phonostage was done with great success.

3)    The preamp was revised and it has not more able PS and 11 inputs.

4)    The Zarathustra’s “Newton Bias” lead to a conceiving the Avicenna power regenerator. It is done and it is in the mail but not tested yet.

5)    The APS Purepower people gave a birth to the 2000 model that accidentally tuner out to be exactly what I would like it to be. My 1.5 year of sufferings from the Purepower failures was well-justifiable.

6) The “alternative” Sansui TU-1X turned out to be a failure as it did not beat my main Sansui TU-1X.

7) The Bidat’s power supply was revised. It was in a way successful but I kind of lost interest to better 16 bit DAC – whatever it does is fine to me.

8) The “Active High Frequency Solution” concept for RAAL “Water Drop” turned out to be if not fatly but rather not useful or not necessary.

9) I did not go for re-parallel the drivers in my woofers tower and did not build amorphous LF transformers.
