You won't start a riot with me. My 74 year old ears still hear pretty good but most of my audio projects now are to restore/repair or for improving the looks or function.

Back then a lot of high end amps were still tubes, or maybe most or all depending on the specific year. Some still prefer tube amps and some also prefer vinyl instead of digital files. The audiophiles who prefer that say those combinations have a warmth to the sound that digital doesn't. I think mostly it's a matter of preference.

Back in the infancy of digital someone said to me that digital generated sound (synthesized) would never be able to create the full sound of say an acoustic guitar. That's pretty much nonsense as it is just a matter of reproducing all the frequencies that an acoustic guitar makes, which was my reply at the time. We're pretty much there now.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Working car stereo, two working speakers, that's all it takes to make me happy.

Hi Mike!
Good luck Sir, I wish you the best. I gave up, as all the leads I tracked down turned up dead ends.
I had a friend actually go to Germany with a car in a container and offered to "layer" the floor of the container with the wood (with the understanding he'd be driving a car over it) on his way back.
Not sure why I saved all this information, but here's a copy and paste of what he sent me while he was there.
From 2-9-12

I have done some research on the Panzerholz.

It's called kunstharzpressholz over here.

Artificialpinewoodgluedpresswood as I translate it as closely as I can.

They use birchwood as layers.

I checked the wood companies around here and this is what I've found:

This holz can be bought in thickness of 15mm and 18mm.

15mm costs 28,90 per m2.

18mm costs 34,70 per m2.

The material can be bought in the size of 2.5m x 1.5m.

That is for birchwood waterproof glued and pressed.

If you want to know more ore write that I look more into it, just let me know.
From 2.20.12:
I've received a mail from a company that can sell you "panzerholz" in The States.

They have asked me to give your name and e-mailaddress in order to get in contact with you.
Not long after that, my buddy came back to the states, but nobody ever called me from Germany.

All is not lost though, seems there's a new product available in the states.
I've not used it though, and don't know how it compares to its German "counter part".
Hope this helps...
It's called "Appleply" and here's the folks that make it; States Industries
