Progress on Pete's "ZIA"


It is practically SPARKLING!   Beautiful job Pete.  I'm glad you are actually boxing this one up! 

Pete has many more pictures of this project here:

He also notes that there may have been some sub-conscious Knack wisdom at work when I dubbed his rig "The Zia."   I was thinking strictly in terms of language and ethnic heritage:  TIA stands for Termination Insensitive Amplifier.  But in Spanish it means "aunt".  But in Italian Aunt comes out as Zia.  So Pete's should be a Zia, right?  Capisce?

Well Pete puts an electronic twist on it:

"Once again you are spot on with ZIA (With  Z the electronic symbol for Impedance).  Thus Impedance (The symbol Z) Insensitive Amp. Thank You."
