  1. Sorry, New to this website for replying. I would be open to trades. I'm looking for Klipsch speakers. What do you have in mind? Jeff.
  2. Hi Carlthess40. What do you have in mind for trade? I'm looking for speakers. Thanks, Jeff.
  3. Ooops. Sorry about that. I had it in there and then somehow it got removed when I added to the description. Thanks for letting me know! J.
  4. This is a nearly perfect Marantz Model 1060 integrated amp with black faceplate. I think the black is a fantastic look because it really sets the knobs off against the background. It had a complete restoration with high quality components, here is the rundown - Installed Panasonic FC 105C rated capacitors on power supply board Removed glue residue from power supply board Installed CDE Quencharc snubber capacitor on power switch to prevent arcing Upgraded filter capacitor to Nichicon Gold Tune 10000uF/80V, installed film bypass capacitor Upgraded coupling capacitors to Mundorf M-Lytic 4700uF for enhanced bass response Installed WIMA film and Elna Silmic II capacitors on preamp board Upgraded preamp board local filter from 100uF to 220uF Nichicon Fine Gold Installed gain matched OnSemi KSA992/KSC1845 transistors on preamp board Upgraded phono board local filter from 100uF to 220uF Installed Nichicon Muse and WIMA film capacitors on phono board Replaced unreliable 2SC458 transistors on phono board with gain matched KSC1845 Installed Nichicon Muse capacitors on amplifer board Upgraded input coupling capacitors to WIMA film types Replaced small signal transistors on amplifier with OnSemi KSA733C/KSC945C Replaced varistors with 1N4148 diodes Set bias and clipping to factory specifications 39 capacitors, 16 transistors, 2 diodes, 1 snubber capacitor replaced This amplifier sounds great, and performed well on bench testing. All functions and inputs are working correctly. The 1060 is a legend in the Marantz lineup for good reason, it is a warm and enjoyable sounding amp. It's very well built, easy to service, and loaded with features. The 1060 is a capacitor coupled design, so expect a "thump" from your speakers when powering the unit on. The top cover has a nice satin black powdercoat. It comes with a reproduction WC-10 case in walnut. It is beautiful and best of all, doesn't smell like smoke that many of the the old ones suffer from. You would be hard pressed to ever find one this nice. I ship with Fedex ground and it will be very, very well packed for shipping. This is a very heavy piece with the cabinet. I'm guessing at 40lbs. Ships to CONUS only. All sales final with no returns. This one was completely rebuilt by Jailtime on AudioKarma site. He is a long time rebuilder and knows his stuff. Thanks so much. Please consider the case alone was over $180. Labor and parts $250. Price is $750 plus $50 flat rate Fedex with insurance to Conus. Local pickup zip 62690.
  5. Hello. I am in need of (2) Passive Subwoofers for a pair of KG4. Anyone have them besides Ebay? Thanks!
  6. Thanks for the welcome and for the info. I am going to put this on my to do list. Have to save a few bucks first. Hahaha. Thanks!
  7. Hello all. I am considering recapping my KG 2 speakers and noticed the 8uF caps are a little hard to find. My question is, can I replace the 8uF with a 10uF perhaps if the voltage is the same? Will it make any difference in sound or possibly compromise the system in any way? Thanks for your help!
