    • As far as I know Mark has completely retired.
    • It is Friday and these are still in the basement.    Use your imagination guys, there are so many ways you could fit them into your system.   Think: Center channel, side or rears, stand alone, wall of sound.    I even have a spare pair of woofers, electronic crossovers, tweeter horn and driver. So in addition to the free bass bins, this could be one stop shopping.   -Tom
    • Idk what all is connected or the config, but the guy said they have a Denon they had been using to power the system.  Gave me a model number, he said 4680 or 4860, but I got zero results searching either. 
    • Thank you for the replies, I have removed the old fuse holder but don't feel confident in installing a new one.  A better question is does Mark still service these units?  I e-mailed the address on the website to request a Maxim mod but have not heard back yet.  He may just be on vacation or busy but I am not sure if he still performs the repairs/mods.  Anyone know?
    • Good Friday Morning gang   Carl, the best to you and your's.   On-line bill pay and Loading for the Donut/Deli/Farm run.   Weather coming in Sat/Sun, First drizzle in months. Looks like our fire bugs will need to take a break.   Afternoon will be assy of the Rv A/C unit, all parts are in.
    • Morning all..... another Friday is here....   Damp wet and chilly this morning...... Might check out the shop heaters today.... not that it's cold enough for the heaters but just to make sure they still work OK....    Carl your family will be in my thoughts today... again my prayers sent to you all...   Wishing all a great day...   MKP :-)
    • Thanks Steve and yes, it was, Amy. Looks like she'll be here at least till Tuesday.   I'll need to go home today, get some more clothes and take care of some house chores.  I may take a nap too as the fold out thing we slept on wasn't really made for the Hilton.  We also had visitors every hour.
    • Restoring a unit like this is definitely not a beginner's project, especially since the voltages encountered under the chassis can be lethal.  In addition, if you plan to use the FM tuner section, and replace various caps in it, alignment will be necessary afterwards.  This requires some fairly sophisticated test equipment.  If you really like the receiver, and plan to keep it, I'd send it out for a professional restoration.     Maynard  
    • Many threads are resurrected when related questions arise, so I'm sure that Marty won't mind at all!  Most importantly, are you experienced in working with high voltages in a safe manner?  Under the chassis you will have possible exposures during testing which could be lethal.  This needs to be taken very seriously.  That being a matter aside, I see in your profile that you are using Elac speakers.  I recall reading a review on the B6 some time ago in which it was found to be a fairly easy load for a tube amp, although its low efficiency will limit how loudly it can be played.  You mentioned one opt not being good.  How did you draw that conclusion?  To me, since you're considering replacing the opts and rebuilding the amp, and also want to have some bass potency, it may make more sense to build a nice 4-5 wpc SEP.  If that appeals to you I can post a design which is likely to work quite well.  As to ultralinear, some say that it combines the best qualities of triode and pentode operation, and others the say it's the worst qualities.  Taking an amp designed for pentode operation and pulling the screen supply from the UL tap doesn't necessarily work out since juggling the circuit parameters is often necessary.  So, fire away with other questions.  Unfortunately JP, who posted extensively in this thread last year, is no longer involved with the forum.  He was the resident push-pull guy!     Maynard
