    45 amps

    That depends on whether the tubes are old NOS, or newer versions of 45 or 2A3. They all have their own sonic signature in there own way. And it really depends on the circuit they are in, with the driver section being rather important itself. There are many variations of single-ended amplifier circuits using 2A3 or 45. Directly heated, or heated with DC...another subjective preference... But I'll throw my opinion out...45 is little more euphonic than 2A3, with 2A3 more neutral sounding than 45. This is with old brands of 2A3 and 45, like RCA and GE. The Sovtek 2A3 I have used were a little more neutral sounding than GE 2A3, with less euphonic sound than GE. Figure room size as well...

  3. Eminence 12LFA...isn't that the 4 ohm version?
  4. Works rather well with Cornwalls, for low to moderate listening in a small place...
  5. Here's my Texas Instruments "digital" 3255 evaluation amplifier mounted in a case with a 48v separate linear "analog" supply mounted in a case. Powers digital Cornwalls with battery powered crossover networks...
  6. His Heresy speakers are digital as well. 😛
  7. Nothing worse than getting a Hustler stuck in the mud...other than having it die and not start in the mud. Getting high centered with one is no fun either.
  8. I had a old Toyota pick-up that had trailer mirrors that stuck out a bit. They would ride up this steep two lane road with no shoulder right at 7:00AM, when people go to work in cars. I'd be getting a good run up the hill, and about half way, there would four or five bicycle clowns blocking the lane...have to slam on the brakes...I hated that! I'd try get as close I could with those trailer mirrors without actually tagging them...they'd move over real quick once they caught on to it.
  9. Maybe try a different model crown amp?
  10. Was stuck in town between appointments and had an hour to kill. Stopped at smoke shop for something to drink, and next door was a record store with vintage audio gear. He was just opening...I followed him in after asking if I could look around. On one side he had a old dirty pair of Cornwall II...somebody converted them into some sort of pseudo pro sound Cornwall, no grilles, all spay painted black. Keep in mind the Cornwalls were up on a shelf, above dozens of smaller speakers below on the floor which had price tags...The Cornwalls didn't have tags. I am looking at them thinking damn, those are rough...and then I hear a record player fire up through them. Okay, they are his shop speakers to listen to while working. We briefly chatted, told him about my Oak '83 Cornwalls. "You ever want to sell them, get ahold of me." I always get that line.... The guy paid 250 bucks for them. Perfect for work speakers.
  11. Shulte is what they use...
