  1. I was thinking the same. I think they have sat unused for a while, both seem to have leaky capacitors. No smell or signs of any burning. I guess I'll get them to a technician to check over.
  2. Thanks for the replies, and the welcome. I found these amps in a thrift store while I was travelling, I've now got home and hooked them up, they do power-up, but no output. Ah well!! Probably a bit overkill anyway, but I sure would have liked to see what 260 wpc would do for me... lol. I'll lift the lids of 'em, and see if there is anything obvious at fault.
  3. Hi all!! I've not been around the forum for the longest time. Anywhoo a question, Has anyone had any experience of Denon POA 6600 Monoblocks, I'm hoping to use them with my RF-5's. Also what is the advantage of balanced inputs? I'm going to have to use them as one of the amps has a broken RCA input.
  4. I have an sta 2000 that I use in my shop, I've always found it a very pleasing amp, with plenty of power. I think the 75 Wpc is somewhat conservative. Manufactured by Foster apparently.
  5. Thanks, I had been veering toward one of the Schitt products, the Valhalla 2 has some stellar reviews, but a little more than I would have liked to spend.
  6. Hi all, I'm looking for a budget friendly headphone amp to power a pair of vintage AKG k 340, I've owned them for years but never got the best out of them, due to their need for more than just the regular headphone out of most receivers/amps. The choices for amps are mind boggling and somewhat confusing to me, anyone had any experience in this area? I believe the k340 are 400 Ohms. Thanks.
  7. I'd like to to see someone modify their K-Horns in this fashion....
  8. A while back someone suggested a crossover upgrade for the RF5, I can't seem to find it in search. I'm thinking that at nearly 20 years old the speakers might now benefit from a refresh.
  9. I can only offer my experience of the RF5, I've owned them since buying new in 2000. Many speakers have come and gone in my house, but they have remained. They pair up nicely with my Marantz 2245, and never fail to please.
  10. I haven't been around here for a while, so I popped in to take a look around and post a photo.
  11. I'm thinking about buying a pair of Klipsch Powered speakers (The Sixes) for a small vinyl set-up, anybody have any thoughts on them?
  12. Ok I went back to my neighbours yard sale, (early bird)...:D..Got the Dual 1299, and a Toshiba SR-250 t/t for $30 the pair...both in lovely condition. He also has a Technics SL-Q300 but he wants $50 for it...not in as good shape.
  13. Got a chance of picking up a Dual 1229 t/t, a quick search shows it to be a decent performer. Anyone have first hand experience of it?
