Me too, we could either all do a small donation or partial payment for pre-orders.
I know you like, tape for people's approval and stuff, and wave your tapes around like they're your dick...  but even you can't actually think section tapes from philips sound good.

hello all. just a quick note to let you know this project ain't dead. family issues this past couple o'weeks - my 84 yr old lace curtain irish mom went into the hospital and ended up going to god on the 2nd. my dad came to stay for a couple of days and i spent a bunch of time with mom prior to her passing. family saw her and she was at peace when she passed. so all things possible were done.

on a good note, looks like pops will fund the AKG project. it'll be a couple of weeks tho' as we have to have a memorial in LA then haul her ashes back east for interrment in the family plot.

also, i got my hands on a set of 480s and have determined they can be readily modd'ed to support the MK46 cable (and all forthcoming variants). it would be great if anyone has the component locator guide and parts list for these mics and could forward them on for my files and to confirm things. AKG doesn't want to share...

so, as i know this community is caring and genuinely sincere, there is no need for you guys to post anything about mom's demise. i know how i would feel if things were reversed and it was your mom and i know you will have good thoughts in your heart for my mom and my pops. i just wanted to give you guys a headzup on what the hell has been going on.

i was saving asking Richard for last. i remember there was an attempt to collect info at the beginning of the project and wanted to investigate that first.

i do have the 460 data as well as the 451 info. akg offers the 480 schemo but without component values and of course the board has no designators on it...

I spoke to Richard a few months ago and he seemed willing to help. Seems like a nice guy.

Yes.  Both Neil and his wife have been hard hit by the economic implosion, and they have 4 kids, so other priorities have taken precedent.  I'd expect this to get back on the front burner again for him, but it may not be for a while into the new year.
