  1. The Yamaha CR-3020 made my list below from last fall when mustang guy and myself were on the monster receiver kick. Just saw another complete Rotel RX-1603 sell for $715 but my audio budget is currently depleted so I had to pass again. I have restored versions of the Concept 16.5 and the Pioneer SX-1250 and I'm a big fan of both; however, it is difficult to find either cheap. I would have to agree. Here is a list of some of the most powerful (mfg 8 ohm ratings) pre-1990 vintage receivers of all time. Many are from the 1970s; however, there are a few after that period that seemed to deserve recognition in this list. I almost picked up a Rotel RX-1603 for a nice price; however, it was sold before I got around to it. 1. Technics SA-1000 - 330 WPC 2. Marantz 2600 - 300 WPC 3. Sansui G-33000 - 300 WPC 4. Pioneer SX-1980 - 270 WPC 5. Marantz 2500 - 250 WPC 6. Sansui G-22000 - 220 WPC 7. Sansui G-9700 - 200 WPC 8. Kenwood KR-9050 - 200 WPC 9. Hitachi SR-2004 - 200 WPC 10. Marantz 2385 - 185 WPC 11. Pioneer SX-1280 - 185 WPC 12. Technics SA-5770 - 185 WPC 13. Rotel RX-1603 - 180 WPC 14. Nikko NR-1415 - 175 WPC 15. Fisher RS-1080 - 170 WPC 16. Yamaha CR-3020 - 170 WPC 17. Concept 16.5 - 165 WPC 18. Technics SA-5760 - 165 WPC 19. Kenwood KR-9600 - 160 WPC 20. Luxman R-117 - 160 WPC 21. Onkyo TX-8500 MkII - 160 WPC 22. Pioneer SX-1250 - 160 WPC 23. Sansui G-8700 - 160 WPC 24. Sansui G-9000/901 - 160 WPC 25. Sansui 9900Z - 160 WPC These didn't make the list as they are 'only' 125 WPC; however, I think they look great. what a wish list - and most of these are still exceptional amplifiers but they are very expensive to repair - so you better find one in great shape - that helps greaty rather than a beat up unit -
  2. we really want to know how it sounds , the walls are going to shake with the Daytons - were theyt moreexpensivethan say a KAPPA15C - any reason why you chose the DAYTONS overall -
  3. what a lucky dude -have a safe trip and best of all may God Bless -
  4. your Heresy speakers are 1983 for sure as there was a Heresy 1 with k24-k77-k701 in 84 - the Heresy 2 was released in 85 with a k24 -k53-k76
  5. these are the odd heresy with the k53 instead of the k55v -and the E2 network - is the midrange horn a K700 with the screw on adaptor for the k53 or is it a k701 plastic midrange horn - Plastic mid horn. What year are they? E - Heresy (E2 for 1983-1984 Heresy-Is with K-24 & K53/701's)
  6. First, can you carry a note, lol. Lol it's not me that does the singing. Trust me on that! It's my wife's friends that wants me to have karaoke when they come over. But of course I am doing it in my living room! then you will have a true party - these speakers are very awesome
  7. If only we could have had Jason weigh in on this thread as he is very current with ALTEC gear -
  8. the OP said EXPERIMENT - sort of like a test or curiosity - the problem is while it will fit in a CW1 baffle -it wont in a CW2 unless you make the opening bigger - you cant use the same screw holes or the crossovers either - -a Cornscala seems to be the best choice iN A 2 WAY SETUP with the ALTEC crossover IMHO
  9. these are the odd heresy with the k53 instead of the k55v -and the E2 network - is the midrange horn a K700 with the screw on adaptor for the k53 or is it a k701 plastic midrange horn -
  10. the fact that it is a 8ohms woofer vs the K33 4 ohms -how foes that aspect play out
  11. Yes, you just clamp it on to your chain, hold onto it with one hand, and turn the pedals with the other. The chain gets routed through the different brushes which are bathed in a degreaser. DOH, even I get it now. just dont squeeze it very hard -or drop it this is very thin plastic -
  12. this amp is a tank - how do you ship this safely -
  13. Chorus 2 for karaoke would be way overkill , they can be heard in a hall - your neighbours 100 feet away will feel the bass -as for yourself 1 watt of power will be more than enough -
  14. hi Jim - does a baffle opening diameter of 14 1/8 " fit
  15. OO1


    Hi Francis -since the ,listing ended , there are no fees -as long as they are not paid for - shoot back
  16. the 416-8C should fit in a Cornwall 1 as it is not front mounted - the mounting hole diameter is 14 1/8 inches -
  17. ooooooooooops - mike's right - these are still used in Scalas 2 - Khorns and will still be for years - the k400 are however beautiful show pieces -versus the plastic -
  18. a rag bathed in chainsaw oil is even better - bathe the rag with a light film to clean and remove the dirt - then use a clean rag with new oil - works every time -
  19. It wont damage them if the distortion is in the recording. The tweeters are merely faithfully reproducing the recording. What gets damaged is your psyche. crappy recording - who made the recording -
  20. Howz about now? No time like the present. he must be very far to get these - and that goes for me as well -
  21. OO1


    good luck Francis - you gotta get these
  22. super nice speakers - no fixing , no sanding - no painting - beautiful -
  23. Ha! I was wondering if saying that would be "going there." Frankly, I don't know how else you respond to that. Many people seeking a way to lose weight are looking for magic pills. There aren't any. Ooops! Just went there again. Once upon a time I fully believed things were that simple and was quite the jackass about it. And to some extent, it was that simple. I used to work with the head dietitian of a large hospital to devise weight loss plans. But, we were largely dealing with mostly healthy and able bodied 30 year olds who simply chose to eat ice cream and drink a coke for breakfast, sometimes repeating that four times a day. But, mix in an injured back and the inability to sleep properly, and things get a little more complex. If it were a stupid simple formula that only required dedication I'm pretty sure I would have mastered it by now. But hey, thanks for the bits of wisdom, I'm kicking myself for having never thought of such things before. I think that if you were training - ice cream and a coke as fuel would have been digested - but not exercising means a sleep disorder -as it keeps you awake - -plus the prospect of type 2 diabetes -enjoy
