    Amp Camp Amp

    Ive tried the original spec and the revision... biggest difference was total power out. The original power supply was terrible. If you look on the DIY audio forums... this mod had been around for a long time... perhaps as a workaround for the poor performance of the 19V? The amp section is incredible, but the laptop supply leaves much to be desired. Building a linear supply is pretty simple but if willing to do so, perhaps the F5 or F6 would be a better choice. I left such endeavors to ebay as I have. Regulated linear supply was my ticket. The orig ACA were monos... love that. The current ACA is a dual mono single box unit. which can be doubled for monos. In short... if wanting a project... the ACA is definitely a hot ticket. If wanting reference sound... need to upgrade the power supply. For must of us, a 5-8watt amp is all we would need... the rest is sonic presences.

    Whammerdyne amps

    Ive heard at several shows at they were amazing. Can speak beyond that, but at the time under show conditions there were impressive... never in a large room but still impressive.

    Bob's 600Hz horn

    Bob Crites has a new 600hz horn. Has anyone tried. It would be a nice upgrade to anyone with a K701 (Plastic horn) with bolt on driver. Super cool for doing Bob!

    Sunn speakers ??? Khorn copy ???

    I contine to have a soft spot for the LS. The Khorn can sound amazing, but placement is a real consideration. I have Jub clones. Likely the best speaker Ive very head... ALK crossovers and all, but the sheer size killed them off. Folded horns have a legitimate place in the order of things, but when balancing size and performance the size question becomes the weak link. The Sunn speaker looks like some bad PA close stuff I see all the time with DJs.

    Sunn speakers ??? Khorn copy ???

    I have 3 pair of the mino punches. They were easily better than k horns but not match to the jubs. With the CSW45O that is jub/mini punch compatible they tied the Jubs. Dig deeper. JWCs design is horn loaded with a tratrix flair and ported. Total pain in the *** to built but a real contenter to the jub/k402 combo. And more importantly... so much smaller. 104db if I recall.

    Tubes or SS for all-horn Klipsch Heritage

    Ive grown to appreciate pull designs more and more. SET amps (forgive the implication) are like a C*ck tease. All the tone/sound you could ask, but never enough of it. Well designed SET amps can be just as quite as any other design, its the lack of significant horsepower that becomes a consideration. If in a small room or not trying to see how loudly you can play, SET amps are incredibly pleasing. But, a P-P amp has some feedback which will provide its own benefits. All the sonic benefits you find tubes in general are offered in great abundance with P-P designs. Im not a fan of Parallel Push Pull or Parallel SET but there are reasons for that... Ill leave it at the KISS approach as rule outs. Class A SS badass. SET Badass but not enough for most of us. P-P Tube... just right. (Dynaco ST35/ ST70, Rogue Chronus, MC275, nearly any KT88 P-P or EL84 P-P )
