That I can understand. You are right a diy kit would be very cool for the Jubilee. The industrial version is a monster would love to hear that....

So, Klipsch should gear up for Jubilee production so they can sell three or four pairs a year? Something HAS to be marketable before it can feasably be brought to production -- that is just reality. There is a pro version of the Jubilee. If one was so inclined, they might be able to purchase the bass bin, and then DIY the tops and networks. I do think Klipsch should at least offer the home version of the Jubilee as a kit -- in honor of The Man. ---------------- I believe Klipsch has what it takes to market the Jubilee properly and get it to market perhaps even a limited trial run. Just seems it would be worth it to bring one of PWK's last designs to market. As far as who would pay for it look at what some people spend on speakers. It seems some morons out there think it can't be good if it's not expensive hell I know some. I call it dollar psychosis. I would bet they would sell more than a couple a year. Hell It would be really nice to see something new come out of Hope again.

I guess the computer speaker market is more important grrr. Isn't that one of the last speaker designs he worked on.
  4. ok so what is going on with the jubilee? are they going to sell this beautiful speaker?

Think of the capacitor used to smooth the ripple as a rather small battery. For absoutely clean power, the trick would be to have a large enough battery to supply hours of listening. The environmental issues, weight, cost, and very small difference in performance (possibly detremental as the voltage drops) are all reasons to keep the amps plugged in and make DC voltage in whatever archetecture one is using (tube or SS). ---------------- Correct me if I'm wrong but could I go to bestbuy and buy the biggest battery backup power supply they have fully charge it and then run on batteries when I listen to music and also have conditioned power as well as battery supplied power? Whats the difference in power conditioners for audio and computer applications?
  13. I have a problem with live music venues especially in little rock. I think that alot depends on the sound man and mic placement. I heard a band that played great music but the sound system or the sound man was screwed. The distortion and lack of ability to discern the individual instruments was so bad that I went to the front to see what kind of equipment I was being abused with and it said EV on the side. Then I noticed that the band sounded great up front because I was hearing everything through their monitors. Is it really that hard for a club to have a good sound system?

What the heck is he going to do with $250 worth of parts once he sells the tt? ---------------- Perhaps you are right. Dam I read too fast thought it said included what a silly way to do an auction. He should raise the price a little and include the price love the table though. I like the tint of the glass.
  15. J. A. Michell SYNCRO audiophile turntable http://cls.audiogon.com/cgi-bin/cls.pl?anlgtabl&1110104374 I tried to talk a friend into this table but he decided on a cheaper table. I would love to own this table much nicer looking than those acrylic tables wish I had the slush fund for it.

Dusty, yes...floppy, no. ---------------- Ok I have to ask still in newbie mode. How do differnet rectifiers affect sound? What brands are better than others etc? I have a Mullard GZ34 in my pre and RCA black base in my monoblocks was told the rca's were as good as you could get. I have no way to verify. Also how much are tube testers I'd love to know what state my tubes are in or does anyone know of someplace in Arcansaw that test tubes?

I'd love to hear Slim Whitman's version though. Where can I find a copy? Are you sure ole Slim didn't do a version of Garcia & Hunter's song? ---------------- Sorry you are correct I guess thats what happens when you assume they are two different songs. I was going through a stack of my dads old 45s and 78s and found several Slim Whitman and I couldn't resist. I remembered his music from Mars Attacks and just had to listen. Not sure what to say about him but wow how weird. The guy can sing/yoddle sorta like a slide guitar hard two tell when they seperated. 1956 Slim Whitman China doll I'm tired of crying and all your lying, That's why I'm buying a china doll. Her eyes are bluer, her faults are fewer, Her lips are truer; my china doll. I'd rather have a doll of clay That I could call my own, Than someone else just like you With a heart of stone. She'll never leave me. She'll never grieve me, I'll never lose her - My china doll. I'd rather have a doll of clay That I could call my own, Than someone else just like you With a heart of stone.

  20. Tom Petty - Wild Flowers T-Rex - The Slider / Rabbit Fighter box set ***** The Creatures - Boomerang Bjork - Post / Homogenic Talking Heads - Naked Meat Beat Manifesto - STSRMXS Peter Gabriel - Passion Dead Can Dance - Aion Kama Sutra Soundtrack To show off my system to someone who hasn't heard it before I have a stack of cds that are of high quality and then let them pick what they want to listen to. I hate having someone play something at me that I don't want to hear or am just not interested in.
  21. Never assume just because something is expensive that it is good. I think I would rather have a pair electronluv pre/amps http://www.electronluv.com/html/amp/845_amplifier.html & http://www.electronluv.com/html/preamp/10line_preamplifier.html . Not sure who posted the moth gear yesterday but that looked really cool as well. Hope it sounds good please let us know.
  22. That is nice I was actually looking at audio advisor saw a salamandar rack and thought it would be cheaper to build. Very nice work btw. I was thinking about making my own vibration isolation system for mine but instead I am going to mount a shelf directly to the wall for all my gear. I didn't realize how much vibration my system was getting through the wood floors until I spun some vinyl. I set a record for needle jumping I am sure.....
  23. I would love to have a pair of these someday just to own a pair of klipsch history but how do they sound?
  24. How could anything that looks that bloody cool be bad? Damm that looks nice. Looks to be solid. Have you done a search of completed auctions to see what others have sold for on ebay also you could google it.
