  1. There is currently a good documentary on Netflix, The 24 Hour War. Covers everything well. How Shelby won as driver back in the '50s, to the AC cobra, to the Daytona models he made to run the endurance races. (seebring, daytona, la mans) Finally getting to setup the GT40s. Good viewing. Lots of historical clips.
  2. Claude -- come on down. Will be out of town 4-8 December. Other than that, will be around.
  3. I suspect a 2.5 month bump is not being too obnoxious. Anyway, still looking to move some things. If speakers alone are not catching anyone's interest for purchase or trade, maybe a close to turnkey system. Just add digital files/streaming source. How about the set of heresey, a 5 wpc tube amp, and a DAC? $600 pick up. Have a Glow Audio One and their associated DAC. I got this back when I still had sensitive speakers, and it is real nice. Very low hours. Quiet, firm bass, and smooth highs. I really enjoyed the solid sweet spot it can generate. It is a single ended pentode running EL-84s. I have some general Sovtek in right now. It is ver. 1.3 so it has two inputs. Glad to audition. Boxes for everything. Have an itch to try some different items, plus could stand to send one amp out for preventive maintenance.
  4. Wife came home and mentioned this. Surprising because she is mainly a background music type of person. Who knew? Looks to be not quite ready to ship as there is something about kickstarter. https://phonocut.com/
  5. Angus -- Just don't think I could fit them in. My listening area is a basement room roughly 12' x 14'. The kicker is the ceiling is 7'. Since 2014 I have been "downsizing" to provide a better balance between equipment size and ability to move around the room. Got rid of Belles and moved to RB-75s which fill the room pretty well. Built a console because I had had a hodgepodge of racks and stands. My latest wild hair is to try and see if I can get a pair of RC-7 and have Dean adjust to the networks to use as front mains. Just to see the difference between them and the 75s. I have one RC-7 now as my center.
  6. Don't forget, would trade for cherry RC-7
  7. For those asking about shipping, not sure the cost would be worth it. A quick estimate on FedEx. 26" x 20" x 18" at 50# from 20002 to 90713 is $110. To 32407 is $70 There would be two of these and the kg box would be slightly smaller. In my opinion, kinda defeats the purpose.
  8. I have a couple set of speakers that have been sitting on the shelf for a good six years now. I just need to pass them along so I can address some other things I would like to do. The heresy are 1976. When I go them they were unfinished and within the first few months I used then I had a voice coil go out on a woofer. I replaced both woofers with new K24-E from Klipsch. They have K55-V solder connect mids and K77-M square magnet tweets. Around the time I put the new woofers in I replaced the caps with AudioCap Thetas. This was all around 2012. I also had them re-veenered with ribbon cut mahogany. I also have magnetic grills for them, and two pie badges that could probably use a touch up on the adhesive. The kg1s are bone stock. They are walnut, which was one reason I got them. Back in the day I though they were going to be my rears for a "heritage" 5.1 but things changed over the years and I ended up going reference series. Both are in what I considered very, very good cosmetic shape. I'm sure if you look hard enough you can find some imperfection, but that is looking very hard. These are located in Washington, DC. Capitol Hill area. Be glad to hook them up if you stop by. I would like to sell both sets together. I am ready to eat sunk costs. $500 takes both pair. I have the original box for the kgs, and very well made boxes for the heresy(s). OR, would trade them for a cherry RC-7. I have more pictures but didn't downsize them all. Send an PM and we can go to email if you want more. Thanks.

    The Cola Wars

    I would bet money the guy in the 7 UP commercial is a young James Earl Jones.
  10. It is all context and perception. I have been running a pair of AW-650 for ten years. The entire time has been with little T amps. First was a HLLY (20 watts). About five / six years back got a Dayton audio (can't be sure, but the 60 or 80 watt model) This is plenty for me, but I don't treat the neighborhood. I actually run both the 650 on the patio and a set of CDT-5650 in the kitchen ceiling off the same amp. Run the leads to two impedance matching volume controls then on to the two sets of speakers. But, this is a row house in DC. The patio is a postage stamp. Over the years have gone from mini computer, to ITX, and now a raspberry pi. Just remote desktop in from laptop or phone with RDP app and go to it. Browser for Pandora, Clementine to my NAS for stored tunes. The computer and amp are in the basement, up a little chase to the attic, back down to kitchen ceiling and wall to volume controls, then to ceiling for kitchen and straight out for patio.
  11. Am cleaning out old copies of National Geographic, seems a subscription every year or two is a simple xmas present from my sister. Anyway, there was a quick blurb in May 2017 about non-sanctioned music and one way of distribution in the old soviet union early in the cold war years. Pretty unique images. BoneRecords.pdf Can anyone see the scanned article? I get a message that it is not available.
  12. Curious about this. Was it process oriented? Have a 222C also with the test points and adjustment screws above the chassis that Craig put in. (bias balance and bias voltage) I go by his process instructions cheat sheet.
  13. Read this and just wondered if you could set up a small orchestra here. Don't know if Wakeman could do an acoustic Journey to the Center of the Earth. https://arstechnica.com/science/2018/11/cave-acoustics-can-help-sculpt-more-realistic-sounds-in-digital-space/
  14. Before you go buying things, check the attributes of the Line Out, if it has one. Often they have an optical integrated into that. Use a TOSLINK that has a mini connector on that end with a regular optical on the other. I have two computers like this.
