  1. I said that here a couple of years ago in response to a similar post, I said different not better or worse and was seriously flamed by "tube experts" here that said changing the rectifier tube cannot change the sound....
  2. I am cleaning out some of my stuff I don't use so here are two cartridges: Audio Technica AT120E, the cartridge has about 300-400 hours on it. The stylus has about 100. I used it with an AT150mlx stylus (sold) the rest of the time. $55 shipped in the lower 48. Shure M97xe the cartridge and stylus have about 200 hours on them. $45 shipped in the lower 48. PayPal. Both worked fine the last time I used them. Both will be packed securely and shipped with their original boxes. prices are firm. If the same person takes both the price is $90 shipped. Thanks David
  3. Yes they are complete and ready to go.
  4. For sale a pair of KG4 crossovers. They are out of a pair that I used to own. The capacitors have been updated. The 3uf and 8uf with Solen FastCaps and the 33uf with a bipolar electrolytic, I think it is Bendix but not certain. The mounting cups are NOT included, just what you see in the pix. $40 (PayPal) shipped in the lower 48. Thanks
  5. So were these 4 rectifiers of a different type? Some were some weren't. If all were the same type and you measured 4 widely different voltages from them I'd be careful of your tube source... you should be able to take a dozen of the same type rectifier tubes from different manufacturers and not see a major difference in the B+ I didn't say widely or major in describing the voltage difference My point was that changing rectifiers can (and does in my experience) change the sound.
  6. I have a Hagerman Cornet 2 that uses tube rectification. I have used 4 different rectifier tubes and they all make it sound a little different. A lot of people claim that if it is not in the signal chain it does not affect the sound, that is baloney. Everything affects the sound, particularly with tubes because small changes in voltages such as bias will change the sound. Different rectifiers will usually have a different voltage drop, which affects the B+, which can affect the sound. The B+ was different with every rectifier that I used. I was a licensed electronic tech in the tube days of the 70s, so I have a decent understanding of what is going on but I don't claim to be an expert.
  7. Went to electronics school in the 70s and worked in a repair shop for a while, so yes I can solder
  8. You must be educated in something that employers need. A degree in English Literature, Sociology, History etc and a lot of similar things may get you a job teaching but that is about it. More emphasis also needs to be put on learning trades, the world will always need plumbers, HVAC repair people, welders etc.
  9. Yep, went to electronics school in the 70's.
  10. I had to replace a woofer on my KG4s a few years ago, ended up getting them on ebay. People often part them out like that.
