"1601 was so be-praised by the archaeological scholars of a quarter of a century ago," wrote Clemens in his letter to Charles Orr, "that I was rather inordinately vain of it.
Every word used in 1601 was used by our own rude pioneers as a part of their vocabulary--and no word was ever invented by man with obscene intent, but only as language to express his meaning.
Although 1601 was not matched by any similar sketch in his published works, it was representative of Mark Twain the man. He was no emaciated literary tea-tosser.

 Mark Twain - 1601   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Mark Twain was just as irreverent as he dared be, and 1601 reveals his richest expression of sovereign contempt for overstuffed language, genteel literature, and conventional idiocies.
The correct and complete title of 1601, as first issued, was: [Date, 1601.] 'Conversation, as it was by the Social Fireside, in the Time of the Tudors.' For many years after its anonymous first issue in 1880, its authorship was variously conjectured and widely disputed.
The circumstances of how 1601 came to be written have since been officially revealed by Albert Bigelow Paine in 'Mark Twain, A Bibliography' (1912), and in the publication of Mark Twain's Notebook (1935).

 AudioEnz - Denon AVR-1601
The 1601 carries on that look, allowing the front panel to include a number of controls without looking intimidating.
Many amps and receivers have most of their gain (or volume) in the first fraction of a turn, as this makes the amp appear "more powerful" to the uninitiated.
With the 1601, Denon allows precise volume adjustment over a very wide range, making it much easier to (for instance) select the appropriate volume level for late night listening.

 Keller 1601 Dovetail Jig Review   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
The key features of the Keller 1601 that led me to purchase it include its ability to machine through dovetails with no setup/test cuts, it handles work pieces of unlimited width, and it does not use guide bushings (its bits include guide bearings).
CMT sells bits for the Katie jig, which supposedly are a match for the Keller 1601.
I purchased my Keller 1601 from Seven Corners Hardware for $189.00, which is considerably less than the show price ($209) or the suggested retail price ($249).
