    I am a 3rd generation agriculture industry Californian living in Tulare County. I'm also a published photographer who first picked up a camera in the late 80's and never looked back. I have been a multirotor builder and operator since 2003 and have my own line of drones flying many countries all around the world. That's when they both seamlessly came together bringing a whole new way of capturing video and still images. I use a variety of new and old styles and gear to capture everyday scenes throughout my travels and everyday life. I have always been interested in audio and have been collecting media and gear for years in the constant pursuit of amazing music and the components to reproduce it.

Room is 24x20x8. All current tube amp and tube preamp upgrades are finished and switching amps in and out are a breeze. Currently I can choose from a 25wpc 6550 triode, 4wpc EL84 pentode, and a 15wpc EL34 triode for tube amplifiers as well as the Plinius SS amplification.

  1. Great information everyone. Can anyone show me Klipschorns or similar photos and the dsp setup you are using?
  2. With the Klipschorns none of the drivers are aligned (and they still sound good). I was just going to get started with dsp delay/eq and tri-amplification about 13 years ago with my first set of Khorns but due to a divorce I ended up selling them and that never happened. I heard an amazing Khorn setup doing that with custom crossovers and it was amazing. They are the tweakers dream and I don't mind starting that process all over again. It's just hard to get motivated lately since I have just been enjoying my Altec 604H II's so much without all the extra tweaking other than tuning the cabinet and really good crossovers. I use the sub with both the Klipschorns and Altecs, just adding a tiny bit of a well crossed over sub adds something really nice to certain recordings.... for me anyway.
  3. Anyone have the tweeter on top at the rear to match the mid driver in alignment? How where the results? I know it all can be done in the digital world with delay but I was just curious what people were doing or what gave the best results. Or if most just enjoy them stock "as is" like I have been lately. I intended to start down the tri-amp direction and DSP about 13 years ago with a set of Khorns I had but sold them and never pursued it after that.. Since then I have recently purchased a pair of Khorns and was wondering if it was worth trying again? They are the tweakers dream and I don't mind starting that process all over again. It's just hard to get motivated lately since I have just been enjoying my Altec 604H II's so much without all the extra tweaking other than tuning the cabinet and really good crossovers.
  4. When all is said and done things are worth what an individual is willing to pay I have found.
  5. Some stuff to look at here but I haven't updated it as often as I should http://charleshidalgo.com/
  6. Unexpected time off so it's been jazz all day.... set the lights for a blue mood this morning and before I knew it the day was done. Swapped out the 2A3's for some 45's today. Glorious midrange with either but it's fun to hear the 45's and how 1 watt per channel can sing so good!
  7. Hello Jeffrey. Would your friend be interested in selling these outright no eBay? I might have a project for these. I saw where he has been trying to sell them for sometime now and has relisted them several times, but I never found these when doing eBay searches till you linked them here. Charlie
  8. After a long "break in" period my Stonehenge V cabinets with GPA Altec 604H II speakers and custom crossovers are home and sounding amazing.
  9. I came across this and thought I would pass it along. Starts tomorrow October 25th https://goldcountry.craigslist.org/gms/d/huge-estate-barn-sale-saturday-at-old/7005372062.html Charlie
