  2. It was now another 1.5 years well packed in my store ...Yesterday was baptism ...Peter Pritchard's MI ADC 10E MKIV is on the modded SME 3009 in operation. Had purchased it from a collector , technically impeccable condition , the needle has assured max 20 operating hours , moreover I had purchased the ADC with an original replacement needle Astatic USA. This is still well packed in the store. Among other things I still own an ADC XML MK III with JICO needle , a NoS XLM MK IV ( very very rare ) and a Sonus Gold Blue Just imagine , the good man had bought it on 04.09.1972 , it actually sometime in the last 50 years just for fun a little play , forget and that's it. Actually incredible ... these collectors ...collect & collect & collect ..but do not hear or have collected so much that they lose track. Now I'm the lucky one who can hear it . Initially it distorted in the Mids spectrum , ran unsteadily in the scan , pale timbres , little fundamental ...from bass spectrum no speech. After a few corrections of the VTA, the Trackingforce ( 0.5 > 1.25 / 0.7 recommended ) with me currently 1.0 Antiskating, Azymuth and a whole night in the idle groove of the Clearaudio Break In Vinyls sounds today already quite different This crazy spatiality ..solved airiness of the action in the room..a stage structure at its best. Slightly dark timbre without losing resolution in brilliance & Hights, strong Mids&Groundtone down to the bass staging with attack , bounce & dynamics with an almost heavenly musical flow. I'm impressed and amused , that's they way it should be A low-flyer in the true sense of the word

  5. Here it is with the AK network. I know from John Allen that it was the driver used to develop the AK network in anticipation of the EV replacement (K-55-M). I confirmed this with Jim Hunter. EDIT: @geoff. Any explanation without confirmation is just conjecture, and since you are not the original owner of those LSI's, we can't really say for sure what networks those speakers shipped with. What are the serial numbers of your speakers? Another explanation is simply what Randy said. I don’t make the recipes. I’m just the cook. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

  6. Anyone here who owns speakers with an efficiency of more than 98 db (that's most of you) is fooling themselves with 200 wpc SS amps. Not only do they not need that much power, they are missing out on better sounding amps by choosing that path.

  7. I had several amps in over 20 years: ss, tubes, hybrids, etc... One of the best amp I've tried with my CW is Copland CTA402, a push-pull with 4 EL34s: amazing!!! Very detailed sound and controlled bass, excellent soundstage and realistic voices: I love it! 😍

  8. Very tasty and will finish it for lunch today. A chuck roast may work well too but haven't tried that yet. The small store where we purchased the Osso Bucco also had Elk. May try that but not in chili.

  9. Hey everyone I just got them!! They look and sound great..(I will attach photos) Only issue is that from the smell I can only guess that they were stored in a humid place. So my questions are the following: A) would you recommend any safe way of cleaning the grilles? The same for cabins and horns etc? C) Any suggestions on veneer maintenance? -oak oil - (I am located in Greece/ Europe so I guess if anyone knows any non American products it would be Extra helpful 😅) D ) Finally would you recommend that I took them to a technician for a "check up" ??

  13. My wife got a big variety of free peppers from a local guy and she made pepper jelly from them. I’m not sure what was all in there but holy cow were my eyes watering as she was preparing everything. I know there was at least one Carolina reaper in the mix.

  14. I have an Oppo 105 since 10 years and I think it's gorgeous! I compared it with several CD/SACD players (even Mc) and it is still my favorite player. I use it with CD/SACD and also with BD (movies and concerts). I can play Tidal with Oppo and maybe I'll buy only a decent DAC to upgrade the internal DAC of Oppo.

  15. i just got a pair of Cornwall speakers that have been sitting in a barn shed for some years. so after first dusting and some inspections (and a little shock about the size they are sitting in my living room) i've connected them to my amp, replacing a pair of quartets. info from the tags sn: 21T096 / 21T097 i found they are from 1979 one has initials OD, the other ASL They have been playing for a couple of days now, and i'm thinking about restoring them. The state is sort of oke, there are some chips in the woodworks and the cloth has some rips. before i begin, i have some questions about restoring them 1. i'm not sure if i want to repaint the speakers or put veneer on them. Is the colour bound to the serial number? ( for now i would like to keep them as stock as possible, only repair what is needed ) 2. as seen in one of the photos, it looks like the sides have a veneer (there is a layer peeling off), but from the top it looks like they are painted? 3. in case of a repaint, what paint is advised ? 4. does the front panel have another paint or brush or is it the same as the side panels ? 5. what can be used for filling the chips on the corners and edges ? 6. should the caps be replaced? i've read about the JEM Performance Audio caps. is there a European dealer of JEM ? 7. one of the plastic tweeter housings has a hole, it look like the connector was replace to the left bottom. does the hole affect the sound ? 8. are there other points i should think about when restoring them ? thanks for any help

  17. Thanks for your response, billybob. Here are a few pics of the Heresy’s. I could only upload 3 due to file size, but can send more if needed. I’ll have to look for the original crossovers to see if I kept them. I ordered the speakers with matching birch stands so they are original and match the cabinets perfectly. I’m not too far from Asheville, NC. Regards

  18. You could measure a K-55-M with an AA to get a complete picture. Would be nice to settle this one. Seems maybe you can do two port phase plug with the AA, but should not do AK/AL series networks with the single port phase plug driver.

  21. I got a subwoofer from a thrift shop and all it had was the main power cord. What other cords do I need to hook this up properly? Can I plug it into a regular receiver? Do I need a volume controller cord for it? Do I need specific input cords?

  22. From what I see here only difference are woofer capacitors but that is easy to correct so yes. Probably they will not be even included when you buy AK-3. Possibly 4mH inductor could be missing too but you will be able to substitute it somehow.

  23. That´s true , same in germany , but according to German law, we now have to live separately for 1 year before the court decides on the material things. So there is enough time to develop a battle plan

  30. Thinkin about grabbin some of Devin's stuff just haven't jumped yet. He's a whiz coming out w/new guitars so I've heard. As a matter of fact I think Joe wrote a song about him. Cables look great @AndreG. There I go again showing my age. 😂💪

  31. With the new cables and hooked to the Kenwood. I have to say: That amp and the speakers were made for each other – sounding saweet!! And a good one for a test-run, Devins latest live album. The only thing I gripe about is, that it´s too short. Two LPs, three songs per side max, run-outs are huge, I´m sure the concert was longer. Well, they picked the best there was.

  35. Hi, In 1988, I was in Sochaux, for the construction in the huge Peugeot factory of a new factory for the 405 car. I was doing earthworks to divert the river which passed through the middle of the industrial complex. I had an office in Etupes, a town near Sochaux and there were Peugeot Sport workshops: I see trucks with covered sports cars and sometimes 205 WRCs in the parking lot. A few months after the 1988 Pike Peak I saw Ari Vataneen's 405 at the Peugeot Museum in Sochaux which opened that year in 1988: it was huge with its black fins, there were also the 205 WRC and the 205 Paris -Dakar yellows https://laventure-association.com/laventure-peugeot/le-musee-de-laventure-peugeot/

  36. Tons of stuff if you hit the search above. Just don't get too wrapped up in things right now. Enjoy them for a while. I put risers under a pair I have,which raises the front a couple inches and was amazed at the change in the voice. Fire them up and enjoy the ride Perfect match w/the receiver so kick back and enjoy.

  37. I am with MMurg on this. In my case the AXI was much better than the 691 AFTER 12 or so rounds of tuning to my room with ChrisA. My system is 2 channel and no HT use. I have also heard the Heritage and the tops compared well, but the Heritage had the edge on the bass for sure. I am using dual subs its close but not the same.

  38. i have some Forte ii's , and have been on the fence about trying the titanium mid's & tweeters. did you make any mods to the crossovers ? i've read mixed things on various forums about the mids needing crossovers updated. what did you like/dislike about them compared to the stock diaphragms ? would you compare it to the RF series ?
