  1. First name Terry JC and a few call me TC Nickname from older friends.....Toots
  2. That was in my room at HI Express just before the pizza arrived
  3. That it is. Listened to the 415/ 402-510 combo. Just outstanding!! tc
  4. I thought you Texas boys only listened to cowboy music? Love to poke a fellow Texan when I can. smile The jazz I do not like is a cut where they never play the same note twice. And then there is Dixie Land. Liked Chicago when they were Chicago Transit Authority. But that was rock. IMO After that they were lite top 40 radio cuts to make money. BS&T where somewhat more jazz inspired. EL&P hit some Jazz licks but had a classical flair as well. Great live! Liked Fusion such as very early Jeff Lobber. Big band Swing? In my early 30's a friend and I went to a supper club called Zigfield's; With hair down our backs and in 3 piece suits we were the only people there under age 70. Cocktails and Count Basie live? We were floored!!! Got to spend some time with him afterword. Still have his autograph on a cocktail napkin. Under the radar is Art Pepper. "Miss Who?" is killer!! George Duke on keyboards. (Zappa) Will listen to the hotter cuts of snooze jazz in background when reading.
  5. If I were looking for a beater pair to refurbish they would be great. $600.00 for the pair......max
  6. Love my old Lux. But not a receiver. I run two M117 power amps (bridged) with that same tubish quality sound. Bi-amped on the bottom. MONSTERs. tc
  7. You bet! Still loving my bridged Luxman M117's
  8. Good thread guys. Can we now discuss speaker wire? Or maybe IC's..... tc
  9. Congrats! So glad you were able to use those killer JBL's tc
  10. Ah man, over a time span of 46 years? Don't know quite know how to respond other than to guess there were dozens. Most with upgraded networks and expensive caps. Some with ESN boards, one with Altec 511B/902 drivers and even one with a Cobraflex horn, but most were stock K55/K400 or K401 mids. It sounds like you are concerned with harming the wooden horns. All that needs to be done is to remove the load of the driver from the horn. Once you have the driver mounted just lean it back and measure from the bottom of the driver to wood below. Most anything will work. Pieces of plywood. I even stacked up books to do that with JBL drivers 5lbs more than yours. No need to miss out on an outstanding system by overthinking the prob. Not long ago forum member SETI built some stands for his monster JBL drivers. Send him a PM. I'll bet he would send you pic's. Regards, tc
  11. Bob's Khorns easily rank in the top three Khorn systems I have listened to. (starting in 1972) Build the supports.....You will love those mid horns!! If not, I think I have an extra K55. No charge tc
