Sweetwater doesn’t even carry it anymore. And Radial owns Jensen so it’s not like they’re overpaying for the transformers. I think John Hardy backed off his own 500 series twin servo project when he realized he couldn’t quite match the Sonics of his rack version with the 16v limitations of the 500 series architecture. I’m still very curious how the Radial sounds. I’d bet it’s still pretty great on its own. It’s kinda hard to mess up the beautiful neutrality of a 990 op amp as long as the signal path is clean.
