I could most likely laser etch all the input, output, loading etc. info on the back panels if you wanted me to?

Made any progress yet?
No. I'll be in touch the moment there is anything to report.

Yep that's great. Thanks. And more importantly Arkless logos on the fronts?

Yeah, whatever, you and Si decide on. I'll need just the panels - so removed from the rest of the case and without the fittings attached (ideally).

Save the metal etching for production units, little text pads to go between the sockets will do. 2cm tall 5cm wide. IN, OUT and LOAD

Actually, might be white on black, I’m not sure / I’m sure that will also be OK.....

Well it doesn’t look like this phonostage will ever leave the designers home - a shame :(.

Meanwhile, on the Art of Sound forum someone is selling a Paradise stage. It doesn’t have the Calvin output boards fitted but this could be done retrospectively by the new owner. They have also managed to fit the whole thing into two reasonably compact cases (rather than the more common four).

I've had half a dozen enquiries about the Paradise as a result of that thread.

If only there was another phonostage that they could try of a similar quality at a similar price, in decent looking boxes that was ready to demo...
