    • If the cabinets are in excellent or better shape and all components are working the price is reasonable. 
    • Bump with items removed and added. Sent from my SM-G986U using Tapatalk
    • If it weren't for the damage.... Driving to retrieve something can go many ways. If it's an okay deal, then not driving very far doesn't hurt. If it's a great deal, then a longer drive balances the deal a bit more. Since it's a one time and done, I tend to ignore the drive, that way I can convince myself it was a great deal. 😎      Not sure who can answer that any better than you. Location, condition, time of year will all play a part in the prices, and this virus will cause more bargains as time goes on.  @wvu80 has gathered the completed sales of several Klipsch speakers and can share that they have been selling for.     That's called experience and is something you get right after you need it.      Trying to stay with 1976 is going to limit your deals by a great deal. Not too long ago, that same money would get you Cornwall or Chorus II in excellent condition. $1,500 was for LaScala in great condition and starting into Khorn prices.  Studying the market is the best thing to do. After getting familiar with what things go for, then you will be able to pounce on a deal with confidence. 
    • OK, it obvious you think you are an expert and everyone else is well, not in the world you live in. Instead of talking electronics you have gone to belittling say I won't ever have the experience you have. And you are right, no one with any electronic background is going to buy into what you are saying. It will never make sense to anyone with basic electronic knowledge. I like the flock I fly in and hope I am never in the world you live in.    You have a good day as well.  
    • Well, in a nutshell, the diodes prevent the driver tube voltage sagging, when the power tube draws heavy current.   If you Google "stopper diode", you find better explanations. rgds, JNL.
    • Hi Mike,  great idea! The TV damper-diodes give you a slow turn-on, and a low voltage drop. The oil cap gives you low DCR, and a very long lifetime.   (if not forever) As you know, that first cap right after the rectifier is the most stressed cap in the whole amplifier! The Marantz model 2 amps used 2) 6AU4 then a 8uF motor-run oil cap. rgds, JNL.
    • It may sound silly to you, but if you ever gain the experience I have, and you likely won't, it would all make sense to you Henry.  You can live in your world, and I will live in mine !!!   Have a lovely weekend.  I have things to do elsewhere.   Sixteen piano LPs to buy on eBay..   Jeff 
    • You are mis-quoting me Maynard, to try to prove a useless point.  Harry built my lower mu driver version, of the same circuit.   My original 2019 build, amp as it sits, with the original circuit ( and too high a gain input tube ) , is beyond anything most people will ever get to hear.  But, as I very plainly explained, the driver tube we initially selected ( mu of 100) gives too much gain.  The amp is worthy of a rebuild, into monoblocks, and, I have changed the driver tube to a lower gain triode ( mu of 33 ).   You have no idea what he is hearing, you are only guessing !!  His score was -7 on the 300B amp, plus 60 on the new SE DC KT88 amp.  " Period".  He wrote.   Jeff 
    • Those are Fir, black.  H1's in GOOD condition go for $400 all day long, but this set has a lot of black paint missing in the front making these in AVERAGE condition which averages $335.   Just the opinion of me and my Heritage Prices spreadsheet.
    • This showed up on my porch a couple weeks ago and I've been sitting on it for just the right time.  Today it's ON!  No more Ohio State football because of Covid so I get the day off.  Gonna make the best of it too!  Didn't make this one but the next one is back in Chicago and free is always good!  Sooo, thanks for the box EC but what do I do with the Blue-Ray that came with it since I'm only two-channel?  Might have to play with the Oppo a bit.  Yaaas, MicroMara hecho in Germany!  Sweet thru these lil cranked Heresey's.  Next time around it'll be on the LS cause I know I'm gonna be a repeat offender!  Great so far!
