    I heard from Kodak today and a call is scheduled for friday. We'll be tied up all weekend at Book Expo America, but will let all know what I hear when I have the opportunity.

Browse through Absolute Sound, Stereophile, Sensible Sound (for more moderately priced gear,) Hi Fi World, and many other audio magazines for a survey. Prices of the high-end gear can be stratospheric, but there are manufacturers of much less expensive gear that are producing quite good products.

    Cheers.

    And not to keep flailing the hide from a deceased horse, but someone asked about bias ply tires. They are still made. I don't know where but ask anyone who owns or drives a vintage automobile from the 20s or 30s.

    And it is not just high end audio that consumes tubes. There is also a large culture of people who collect and lovingly restore to operational status vintage radios and receivers such as the Trasnoceanic short wave receiver my dad had when I was a kid that was from the early 40s.

    I spoke with Kodak and here is the quick version of my report:

    There is plenty of Azo on hand. No one needs to panic.

    A few years ago Paula and I saved Azo from extinction. We didn't do this just to get everyone excited about silver chloride paper and then leave them in the lurch. So we are having silver chloride paper made elsewhere. There will be silver chloride paper available as long as we are around.

    Some of us prefer writing with fountain pens - using bottled ink.

    Whatever floats your boat.
