    I just received this 20 watt amp today. http://www.parts-express.com/pe/show...number=310-300

    I was going to build it from a kit but the cost would be double. Besides,I'm tired of building and modifying things. Plugged it in, connected it to my loop & TV and it works as good as the 180.00 Univox.

    Way to go, bigbeck. I have been looking at that little amplifier for quite a while. You sure can't beat the price. If I didn't already have a UniVox 2A+ sitting next to the couch, that would be the amp I would buy.

    There is a company up in Michigan not far from where I live called "Loop America".

    They have all kind of stuff for looping and integrating sound systems and your hearing aid t-coils.

    I wish all public places were required to provide looping under the "Americans with disabilities act". Europe is almost completely looped.

    Thank you, Walter. I visited the Loop America website. I clicked on the Loop Locator and was dismayed to see so few looped facilities in various states. Even worse, there were several states that had no looped buildings whatsoever. California has wheelchair accessible ramps on virtually every building in the state but only 33 looped facilities. Sad.

    Seems like the US is falling behind in important technology issues. We're certainly up there with useless "fluff" technology,though.

    Loop America is one of the very few US companies that are pushing loop systems.

    It is sad. The expense that cities and governments go to have wheel chair ramps, brail on every elevator and sign, and yet very little in the way of t-coil loops for the hearing impaired.

    Someone will have to start filing lawsuits, then the city and county zoning boards will have meetings reference protecting themselves from the lawsuits, etc....... Looping is easy and inexpensive and would positively impact soo many lives for the better.

    Walter, folks in wheelchairs are highly visible whereas we hearing impaired folks seek out the most unobtrusive devices possible in order to conceal our handicap. It should come as no surprise who gets the funding and who doesn't.

    I wonder why computers, especially laptops, don't have a loop installed in the perimeter of the LCD display, and perhaps, even in the perimeter of the main frame itself!

    For large LCD displays and even large-screen TV's, the loops could be installed around the perimeter. It shouldn't cost that much money to add however many coils of wire are needed to accomplish this if the loops were designed ahead of time to be installed in the new units.

    // I wonder why computers, especially laptops, don't have a loop installed in the perimeter of the LCD display,

    CRT displays already have a loop around their perimeter. They are degauzing coils. With the CRTs the audio signal would probably distort the image but with LCDs it shouldn't make any difference.

    Jeff, there are some very good technical reasons looping an LCD display would not work. There are a lot of electrical pulses being generated which cause the display to 'paint' the picture on the screen. A loop would most likely pick those up. As a test, switch your hearing aids over to the t-coil position and place your head within a few inches of the screen. Hear anything?
