Re: Talked with Ken Fischer today.....
Thanks for sharing your experience. I'm glad to hear he's a great guy (I had heard the rumors but.. ;-)  
and fwiw, I could not agree more about the "tweaking" & "The amp <> schematic" bit. Reminds me of talking with Z at his place, and asking him why he used certain types of caps in certain places, ("isn't a .1uF a .1uF?" I even asked) and he gave me one of those looks, and said "you'd think so, but they're not".. and that you have to tweak and tweak until you find the right part for the right spot.. (not to mention the right value!)  
Words to live by. :-)
