  1. Michael,

    I'll bring over 3 tube units if you wish. I'll bring a 14 watt per integrated, 30 watt per EL34 newer amp, or a pair of 75watt per monoblocks. I'll bring over a couple of preamps also. Your call buddy. You can judge for yourself. Give me a call

  2. Woof! Woof!

    Come on down Arf. I'll duplicate what you're running now and throw some tubes at the same system. I love what ya got now. I'll show what you can do for just a couple of pesos to rock your world through hot glass.

    I've been running both for years and sadly I was under the assumption of high maintenance tubes. I can't go back to solid state now. It's almost as good as an orgy with triplets. It will spoil you.

  3. One of my closest friends here in Indy is as bad as I am about audio. He is married and his wife has made him downsize considerable to home theater only in the last year. He calls me all the time from garage sales and flea markets letting me know about gear available. He's running a Bose HT and big Denon digital. A couple of months ago he offered me his Nissan truck. My old work van has seen better days and he knew I needed another work vehicle. He priced it to me at a very low price and I told him yes on the deal. About 10 minutes later I fired up a Mc275 through my Cornwalls and the deal was off. He had to have the Cornwalls. We did the trade and he had me hold the speakers for about a week until he figured his wife would be cool with more audio equipment. We set up the Cornwalls as fronts and when his wife got home the sh.. hit the fan. Her comment was "what do you want those ugly things for?" I had the remote for the Denon and fired the Cornwalls up. Speechless for about 15 minutes her next comment was "I see why you want those". Last week His wife bought a pair of my Heresys for the rears. She now is the Klipschaholic of the family. Amazing what a good pair of horns can do to a music lover. Wait until I hit her with tubes!

  4. I agree totally. Josh has been great and filled a need at a more than fair offering price. I have a Pas-3 in storage but it has some issues. The sockets are shot and 1 side is down. I thought about buying a new board set for it but it needs a new volume pot and completely gone through. It's a project when I have nothing else going on. BTW, anyone know anything about these new board sets offered on Ebay?

  5. I get lots of good info on the forum. I've met some super folks and always have been treated with respect and friendly comments. I took out what I needed and would like to pass on the rest. NOS can be expensive and hard to find. Some of these would probably never be offered and maybe they can find a home. I know when I need a tube or set I usually have an extended search.

    Glad to offer these. I hope they can be put to use.

  6. Thanks Larry,

    Josh is supposed to ship it today. I've been running an old Lafayette integrated tuber until I find a good tube pre. The old Lafayette is ok but well underpowered, and the mono amps have a deep sweet kick and sound much better at low volume late night. It's too hard to relax while reading with SS pre's late night. Thanks again Josh,

  7. Hi, I received a box of new old stock USA tubes and I want to share with forum members. Just pay shipping. Take what you need and let someone get what they need. Most are radio, tv, ham radio, etc. All in original boxes. Thanks SF for the help.

  8. Also, You might want to pull the cover and check for an obstruction in the gearing system. Improper cleaning and foreign objects such as cat hair, lint, etc can cause loading problems with these low torque motors. Sorry, but cat hair is a major problem. It is also conductive.

  9. Always check out the loading design. Belts are a major cause of failure. Many times a belt alone will NOT cure the loading/unloading malfunction. One good cheap product is ABU GARCIA SILCOTE reel oil. Silicone base, ultra fine, non-conductive, never sticky, and works like a champ. Inexpensive. Works on plastic and metals. Will NOT harm finishes. I buy mine in the Sporting Goods Dept at KMART. Cost: Less that 2 bucks for a 1oz bottle.

    I do repairs on audio/visual equipment. It is a part of how I make a living. I've been a tech for over 20 years.

  10. Hi, I'm looking for a fair to decent tube preamp for my second system (bedroom). Need bass and treble control and at least one input for cd player or tuner. I don't need anything fancy or pretty, just solid and quiet. I'm running a pair of Triad tranny homemades with 6L6. Price? Well, as inexpensive as I can get a good working item for.

    Thanks,

  11. Better grab 'em up while you can. The decorators are getting hard to find. They quit making the true Heritage line and the price can only go up. The Cornwall is a great speaker. A classic. Parts are plentiful still except for the mid horn lenses. The damage is minimal and can be repaired easily and the grills can be removed and these can be taken back to original condition. It's a no lose proposition whether you keep them or not. If you are coming to Indy for the pilgrimage I'll gladly take them off your hands. I live in Indy and collect the old Heritage.
