  1. I'm still learning how to use the Sound Technology Gear but it is all restored. Can't even count how many caps we replaced. I've fallen into a hole of test gear restoration not just tube amps. If you can't measure what you've built how do you know what you got?? Here is my first tech work bench... Everything works.
  2. I don't know what changes don't think Roy is telling. I know that the last time I was in Hope the Jubilees sounded the best I've ever heard them. I asked Roy and he just smiles and says it sounds ok.... For those complaining about the price.... Beat it lol..... This has been long overdue and PWK/Roy's Jubilee deserve a really high price tag. This is the state of the art horn system on the range right now. Roy is killing it and he only left hints in the interview.... BRAVO KLIPSCH I take back everything I ever said about you not releasing this product.
  3. Yeah I don't think most people understand what a leap in technology the 1502 and 1802 HLS represents. It may be the biggest leap since the shearer system came out.
  4. iPhone rule #1 now your itunes or icloud or account you set it up under. You need this to download apps so it is important to know. The apple store can usually help.
  5. I went from a iphone 7 to 11 Pro Max.. It is the best phone I've had in a while the 7 was meh.. The camera on the 11 Pro Max is amazing. It is also pretty fast.
  6. Puerto Rico. Vietnam.. .. or some tropical location popular with other expats...
  7. That is awesome. I've just been a crash test dummy as I've done it wrong and then done it right. lol... One day is optimistic but you are right rental is needed for sure. Do they have a rental shop around there?
  8. Yeah period colors are wild. Can't wait to see it. I've done more hardwood floors than I can count espcially old ones. There are a few ways of dealing with them. 1. sand straight to the wood, stain, and poly a few coats to look new. I only do that with the worst. 2. Light sanding almost by hand then stain to match where there are issues. Then poly a few coats. Leave imperfections for character. 3. Light sand, stain to make it uniform and poly. I've done all three and all work to various degrees. I prefer to leave the imperfections and live them. In my house it is a 120+ years old so it is ok to look lived in...
  9. True.. Victorian and craftsman color schemes were crazy. My house is 1890 colonial revival but i refuse period colors on interior..
  10. I think what he is saying that the signs for the museum are the Clinton Boyhood Home.
  11. Hmm I have a good stash of the smaller Eimac tubes. I even have a filament transformer juicy enough to light up 3 35T's per channel. Not push pull but parallell.
  12. I've heard plenty of higher octane triodes that were superb. Jeffrey Jacksons Eimac 75TL and 304TL were among the best high powered triodes I've heard. The voltages and currents used sure do make experimenting not for the faint of heart. Darma not dogma.
  13. They are triodes but not for the faint of heart. I have one but just a conversation piece.
  14. No if you live long enough you get cancer. I've talked to many docs and they all say the same. If you live long enough it is what gets us.
  15. I'm using a quad of 12AX7 bugle boys. Have trried mullards as well. Could be anything really. A phono stage designed for 12AX7 should be able to do so easily...
  16. Hmm that would be cool... Did Klipsch have cad cnc in the late 90's early 2000's? @Chief bonehead @JRH Really curious...
  17. There is a Michael Samra on the Audio Asylum forum who knows more about Sherwood and mods than anyone I know.
  18. I like Syd Floyd not so much the other stuff. Yeah I know he was crazy but my fave...
  19. Not sure the jub was designed with cad software.... But yeah easier to scale.
  20. I'm sure PWK did it... From Stories told by delgado and other klipsch employees PWK built different size jubilees. We were shown a motor board complete witjh two 6 inch drivers and a passive in the midle. I think scaling the Jubilee would be an easier build.
  21. Thanks but I was looking for the entire article as well....
  22. Don't think they built them but they may claim to have built them. Last I knew these were manufactured by Canary Audio for someone who bought the Western Electric name. These amps have Canary Audio written all over them..
