  1. JRH, I just have to know the story on this logbook! If you've told the story already, please point me to the tale. Is this in PWK's hand?
  2. I picked up one of their high-end turntables at good ol' Goodwill. Seems to function properly, but I won't know about the sound until I spring for a cartridge in the $300-500 range.
  3. With all the hubbub over the new 75th Anniversary book (the limited edition, numbered, signed copy), I just this morning developed a big desire to own an autograph by Mr. Paul himself. Paul was still alive when I joined this forum, and am still jealous of those early members who made the first pilgrimage to Hope, to meet the man himself. Years later, on my second pilgrimage to Hope, my family were very fortunate to get to be the guest of Miss Valerie, who bestowed on me (and my wife and two daughters) a treasure of PWK mugs, wine glasses, even a track suit for my daughter! She was overflowing with Southern Charm, a very gracious host. I'm looking for anything signed by PWK: a scrap of paper, a letter, a brochure, a photo. If you have one to spare, let me know what you'd like for it. Thanks!!
  4. My interest in doing this project has little to do with the quality of the sound. It's more about making something that looks like a little Khorn. I'd probably do away with trying to recreate the mid horn and tweeter, but it may be fun to incorporate, say, a 2" driver into a folded mini bass bin. You know, for shits 'n' giggles. I'd probably use 1/8" door skin for the parts (given the scale of the 2' driver vs. the 15" K-33). With that in mind, does anyone have a bass bin cut list that I can down-scale from?
  5. But they don't look like Khorns!
  6. I remember seeing some small cardboard (?) models made by Paul, during a visit to the train station Klipsch museum in Hope. Ever since then, I've had an itch to make some micro-Khorns (probably w/o horns) to use as computer speakers. If I were more ambitious, I'd make them horn-loaded (at least the bass portion, using, perhaps a 2" driver). I have yet to follow through with this idea, but I'm curious if others have thought of doing this, or have indeed done it.
  7. Thanks, Travis. So, I shouldn't worry that if I'm not checking the forum 10 times per day that I'll miss my opportunity, right? Thanks for your work on this!!!
  8. I own an un-creamy Blueberry Xtreme and Pcats! The BBX I acquired in a trade with Mark (for a pair of walnut Belles). I love them! I don't listen nearly enough these days (that room is overloaded with misc. crap), but they're sitting there waiting for me. When Mark first joined the forum, he lived about 20 miles North of me, in Healdsburg, CA. Forum member Clipped & Shorn and I visited him several times, brainstorming and working on some modified Dynaco amps. He hadn't yet developed his Juicy Music products. Mark is a very interesting guy, to put it mildly. He swung from a totally tubular analog setup, to a super pared-down iMac-based digital system. He tried Klipsch speakers, but also played around with smaller speakers, and flat panel single-driver speakers. He also collected (and got rid of) classic guitars, refurbished and sold vintage tabletop radios (bakelite and others). In short, he got into things intensely, then got out with the same vigor when another challenge (or activity of interest) called him. He even self-published a book on nutrition https://www.amazon.com/Food-Fuel-Like-Bird-Queen-ebook/dp/B01ETSX104/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords="mark+deneen"&qid=1616863603&s=books&sr=1-1 !! He's now living in the Palm Springs area (moving from Ferndale in Northern CA). Deep thinker, very intelligent, and quite opinionated. I haven't been in contact with him for a few years. S So, in short, buy 'em when you see 'em!
