  1. I recently made the switch to a Mac and have previously used Audiograbber very successfully with my PC to record online audio and lp's. What would be a program that would work like Audiograbber? I need one to record online audio as well and one that switches automatically between tracks like Audiograbber does. Thanks.
  2. Has anyone seen these? They seem to be worth a try at $450! Has anyone tried these or any organ tube amps? http://cgi.ebay.com/Pair-Conn-Quadraphonic-Tube-Amplifiers-6L6-Monoblock_W0QQitemZ160101013407QQcategoryZ73371QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem
  3. I am looking for some 5670, 2C51, 396A. Also some Bendix 6385. Thanks!
  4. So do all of these posts on this thread mean that there is no black or white answer to my question? []
  5. Mark, I'm sure I can find something in this monstrous mess. Thanks to all who contributed. Andy
  6. My amp is a Sherbourn 7/2100A, seven monoblocks in one...a monster used for home theater and music. I am running Forte I's and II's...upgraded with DeanG's, and I listen to many types of music...Jazz, Classical, Pop, Rock...mostly Jazz, on a Denon DVD 2900. I also having a hard time deciding between my diamond in the rough Audcom AP100 ,that is currently out of business, and my Audible Illusions Modulus 3 for my preamps. I like my setup a great deal. I think curiosity like many of us, the love of music, and the need for audio nirvana is what drives me to ask this question in the first place.
  7. My solid state amp paired with my tube preamp are producing some great results. How will my system benefit from a tube amp or tube monoblocks? What changes in sound should I notice? Thanks!
  8. Also... http://www.audiotubes.com/6dj8.htm Brent is great to deal with!
  9. If you swapped amps, swap crossovers next. I believe that is a good idea. If it is a crossover, Bob Crites, who is on this forum is highly recommended for Heresy crossover re-builds.
  10. My speakers sound even better than before even when I use my solid state preamp. So, nothing has changed molecularly or whatever in my speakers? No new burn-in or whatever has happened?
  11. I recently started using a tube preamp in my system, and have noticed how much the sound opens up on my Forte's. Over a year ago Dean rebuilt my crossovers, and I have been using a solid state preamp previously for both home theater and music. The strange thing is since I started using tubes, my solid state stuff is sounding much better. Has this been noted in the past? In other words, does the use of tube gear permanently change the sound of speakers?
  12. This one seems to be getting some great reviews on Audiogon, the TAD-60... http://www.angelfire.com/biz/bizzyb/TAD-60.html
  13. The Forte I's are from my five channel set-up and are currently being run with a set of Forte 2's and an Academy. In order to get a better matching set to go with these, once the Forte I's are gone, I will be using a set of Quartet's instead...better match with the Forte 2's.
  14. I recently came across a really nice tube preamp, an Audible Illusions Modulus 3 that has been totally upgraded and refurbished. I can possibly trade my Forte I's with Dean crossovers for it...even swap. Should I or shouldn't I? What would you do?
  15. I love mine; It is very musical, open, and warm...definitely a permanent part of my system. I've had it for a little over a year, and it goes great with my Forte setup...great for music and home theater. Feel free to PM or email me with any questions. I agree with the customer service. It is very top notch. When you call sometimes you can even speak to the owner, Ron Fone...that is great and personal service!
  16. Currently I own a Sherbourn PT-7010A and am thinking about getting something different. It is good, but can be a tad bright at times. However, I must sell the Sherbourn first to get the cash for the next processor and hope I'll get somewhere between $1250-1450. Also, I am using it for 50% music and 50% movies. That's where my dilemma is: I want to go to totally tubes for two channel music but need something that plays DVD-A and movies...DD...DTS concerts equally as well.
  17. Terry, When I get one, I will be running it through a tube line stage preamp and a solid state amp. (Down the road I will be getting a tube amp.) Do you know anything about any of the Shanling CD players? Anyone? Andy
  18. What differences are made with a tube CD player such as a Shanling or Jolida? Please post your comparisons versus solid state. Do these make as much of a difference even if you are using a tube preamp and/or amp?
  19. Sherbourn, 7 channel mono block, 7/2100A...extremely musical and warm...NICE!
  20. Somebody better grab these now! Better than "buy one, get one free." But....the catch is "pick up only." This is a steal!!!!!!!!!!! http://cgi.ebay.com/SVS-16-46-CS-PLUSs-2_W0QQitemZ330087322385QQihZ014QQcategoryZ3275QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem
  21. $200 for a single speaker: http://boston.craigslist.org/nos/ele/276708368.html
  22. I currently run four Forte's along with an Academy. Which of these three preamplifiers for home theater would be the best match (as well as best value) for these speakers to go along with my Sherbourn 7/2100A? Has anyone compared these?
  23. I don't know, Mike. What else should I ask without being insulting to him? Currently he is ordering a new volume pot, and I hope to "steer" him in the right direction if he is incorrect.
  24. Mike, " Was your orginal problem just that one channels sound wasn't going all the way down or did you also have gain problems at this point?" I didn't notice any gain problems at this point. I only noticed the volume problem. However, I do not have the schematic. "...then you have control problems(or in the ribbon cable going to the controls)" I have heard the ribbon cable going to the controls can also be a problem. The frustration lies within my tech not being able to reproduce the same gain problem that I am having. He is only noticing that the right channel is several decibels louder than the left, because he is running the preamp into a receiver as his amp for his testing, not an actual amplifier. The problem is not as noticeable for him, because he is able to adjust the volume through his receiver, while I cannot. Thanks for the input. It's really appreciated. Andy
