    • Shorting the inputs means taking a jumper wire with alligator clips and hooking one end to the center pin and the other end to the outside ring. One can take an old RCA cable, cut it and tie the 2 wires of the cut end together and plug in the connector to the amplifier. They make special plugs for this function as well of which I have.    https://www.amazon.com/Viborg-Stopper-Plated-Copper-Protector/dp/B017DH76VS/ref=sr_1_2?dchild=1&keywords=RCA+SHORTING+CAPS&qid=1607026936&sr=8-2   Cutting an old RCA cable and doing like I said serves the same purpose for testing. The plugs are put on RCA inputs of a Preamplifier, especially phono stages, to prevent noise. Common on professional equipment as well. 
    • Keep the water on until the last minute. I do tunnels & roadways. we keep the water on for 30 days! Lookin good, Mr Kotter! Oh I almost forgot, don't forget the Termite flange.
    • Concrete?  At first glance I thought it was a tiny skating rink, but then I saw the boards were removed and the edges were holding themselves up, so that made no sense.  Carry on!
    • Great... mine are built on a 1/8 inch brass plate and are over 15 years old. I don't move them or mess with them. With the Magnequest iron and 2A3s in them, I just enjoy.
    • did you put a vapor barrier down ?
    • Okay, so the dac is a 2 prong only plug. So you want me to plug that into the extension cord then do dac to preamp via rca and then preamp to power amp via RCA. Then see what that sounds like and compare it to amp only via extension cord? 
    • True.  But.   Mine hardly ever have failures, and any need to do a repair, due to a far superior implementation, starting with the chassis.     Look more carefully at just the thickness of the chassis / metalwork in the two amp photo !!    View how thick the steel chassis is in both is please.    Mine is made out of rigid, vibration-minimized 12 gauge cold rolled steel, with welded corners.    The lower amp has a thin, cheap chassis, looks like its made from recycled tin cans in thickness alone.  Transformers and magnetics vibrate when operating, and it vibrates the tubes also.   Mine is 14 years old, and has five amps built in it.   Jeff Medwin    
    • Totally appreciate your help! I just don't know ow what you mean by shorting the inputs. Would that mean, I connect either amp to the speakers with and RCA running out of said amp and then use a screw driver to connect the male end to the shield of the the White RCA plug? 
    • Thanks all.    Just wanted to update with some pictures of the RS-7.  They are overall excellent condition. There is slight vinyl wrinkle on the top left of one cabinet - but that never visible due to their typical mounting height.     
    • I used an extension cord and an outlet across the room. No change in noise.    I put my multimeter on the ACV 200 setting and the put the red on red and black on black terminals on the speaker and it just read 00.0
