Rowdy Re:Is this used in the SLO-100 amp???
Do ya think Mr. Saldono uses this on the famous SLO-100 circuit for a more TUBULATOR sound???  
Maybe thats the SLO's secret ingredient to get that KILLER guitar sound.  
heck, I better gets me some fer all my amps.

Book Of The Day The Ultimate Tone, Volume III by Kevin O'Connor
Have you ever wondered if there is a better way to build a Bassman, Champ, Plexi, an 800, AC-30, Bulldog or Portaflex? Or you wanted to build an SVT with off-the-shelf parts? How about a master-volume amp that doesn’t change tone with the master setting? Everything you need to know is right here, including: proper grounding techniques, wiring methods, and mechanical considerations. Eighteen chapters cover the “iconic” amps everyone knows and loves, with schematics and layouts for each, along with the technical history of the product. Eyelet-board and chassis-mounted tube socket construction is used throughout, for easy servicing and modding. TUT3 is very accessible even if you cannot fully read a schematic and is a "must have" if you are going to build an amp for your self.

tell me, that's a joke, right? i mean that has to be right up there with using green markers on your CDs!  
fwiw, i always thought that the use of black ink on ICs was a stealth effort to keep people from copying the circuit. i never knew of the sonic advantages of black ink!!! :D

It's obviously a joke, right? I mean come on, I may not be Rupert Neve but that stuff looks like it could have been made yesterday. And everybody knows the ink that really does make AD and DA converters sound like tube gear was made for only one year in 1955, specificaly for that very purpose. Sheesh! Who do these smegheads guys think we are!

I'm amused and disgusted me at once. I read the whole page and couldn't find one single technical statement that was not completely ludicrously wrong. I don't really mind that it exists though. It's a classic example of a stupidity tax, just like lottery tickets.

The whole site is a joke, and a pretty masterful one at that.  
The SPLIF amp? :)

I imagine the builders are rolling in the aisles, among other places ;)
