  1. Yes and the Badges are SOLD 2 others in front of you.........................Apparently I need a couple dozen pairs of thosešŸ¤£
  2. 1st---1 Pair of Crites CT 125 tweeters like new work perfectly can send pics of measurements to serious interests, but they measure 7.3 and 7.2 resistance on my fluke meter Take the pair for 125.00 shipping included to you via USPS medium Flat Rate 2nd---A Heathkit model IT-21 tube tester everything works it will test triode power tubes as well as 7,9 pins, and octals + (Look it up) Its not a tester to use for selling tubes but if you want a decent tester for personal use to see if a tube is bad or weak it does the job. I have used it on and off for a couple years with no issues. The roll chart works and it comes with another book with tube data testing settings etc... It aint pretty but it does the job. 50.00 plus shipping 3rd---1 pair of Klipsch Type B crossovers with upgraded clarity caps and an Erse 2.5mH woofer inductor. They were used in a pair of super heresy 100.00 plus shipping SOLD 4th---1 Pair of klipsch copper laser etch badges 25.00 to your door via priority mail SOLD 5th---1 pair of very nice Klipsch Heresy 1, Black grills, no snags etc...free if you buy something else You cover shipping & Materials 6th---1 Nakamichi RX202 Cassette Deck fully operational serviced with new belts and idler wheel (Have receipt for service) 325.00 plus shipping 7th---1 pair of K-700 Horns heavy cast type Free with purchase of something else, You cover shipping and materials I will consider trades for good power tubes like EL34, KT88, KT66, or 6L6, Also would consider 12a_7 Tubes. If you want pics PM me your email and I can get those to you Joe

  4. No offense taken here, Just giving my Opinion of the Trumpet, did not intend for it to come off as confrontational. I agree Jim Hagerman did a superb with the Trumpet. He has a new much smaller version
  5. Superb Amplifier IMHO, Silky smooth, Dead Quiet, Holographic imaging, Mids are very SET 45 like, and bass is stout with good definition. I dont keep a lot of gear as you know but I am afraid this is a lifer. I can not see getting a better SET amp. I have another smaller / lower output KT88 SET amp that can be hauntingly good depending on source material but it does not have the Bass of the Don Allen. I have a couple pair of 6550 tubes 1 pair of Gold Lion KT88 and a pair of tung sol KT120.....................Always on the look out for more, never heard the KT90
  6. The Guts, Iron is huge amp weighs in at near 45 pounds
  7. My Latest addition to the Fold (RIP Don Allen) SEP with 10 WPC KT88 (Think 45, with BALLS )
  8. You are looking at a pic I posted to simply show the inside. The unit was upside down on purpose, Any piece of gear that has something come in contact with the power transformer has a potential to have a MECHANICAL HUM, that piece was re-positioned, Hum Gone. I dont do review speak but you can check the web and there are several reviews of the Trumpet, It resides in some systems costing 100K and up (IOW.... people that can afford any phono stage bought and use the Trumpet, that alone speaks volumes to me) I personally compared the Trumpet to SEVERAL 5000.00 and below Phono Stages, we used Stevens and Billington TX 103 both silver and copper versions along with several MC cartridges in the 1.5 to 5 k arena My table was a Maplenoll Ariedna sig version with air arm and a 70 pound lead platter, My friends table was a La Luce SPJ. Between the 2 of us we tested a dozen at least and without fault the trumpet sounded better. I could care less about the odd appearance. What ever Jim Hagerman did, he did it right IMHO
  9. I have a pair of quicksilver Horn Mono amps 25 wpc designed for use on horn systems DEAD quiet when working properly. I had the Left channel get noisy so I dis connected the amps took a look and found A cap leaking Electrolytics on the still quiet amp (Go Figure) the cap is a 47uf 500 Volt. In the noisy amp I replaced the cap with a German Made F & T I got from Tube Depot. This did not solve the noise (Damn it). There are no techs near me and I do not want to deal with the expense of shipping across the country to Mike Sanders (2 times) So here it is the amps were working perfect when the left one started making noise, No fuses blew, no smoke or anything like that. I can not believe it will be a terribly difficult repair. The amps do not have a huge amount of parts and the design leaves a lot of space for testing and repairs. See the included pic of the guts When I bought the caps I got spares I am including those in the sale. AMPS are being Bought AS IS, NO RETURNS, NO BI^%$ING. I have double what I am asking into these I think 500 is fair but I will listen to offers. These are the Chrome amps and the chrome is in very good (not perfect) shape supremely presentable, Consecutive serial numbers 053 & 054 You will get a full set of tubes as well which included 1 quad of JJ EL34 and 1 pair of EH 12dw7 (thats enough tubes for both amps) amps are auto bias Link to Manufacturers info: http://quicksilveraudio.com/products/horn-mono-amp/
