  1. Horn adaptor for K-77 replacement

    WOW those are awesome.
  2. Glad to hear they will take costume order on some stuff. They should let people know, that's an untapped market they lost a few years back. I really like the lambs wool cloth so much i made new grills for my Heresy's. Think I'm going to do the same for the LaScalas also. Cant wait to see what your new K-Horns look like. I saw that grill cloth on the 70th pilgrimage it is awesome.
  3. Speaker Wire 12/2 & 14/2

    Because my speakers are 50 ft from the receiver......if i were buying right now probably use this... www.knukonceptz.com/home-theater/speaker-wire/kord-speaker-wire/sp/kord-ultra-flex-12-gauge-speaker-wire-100/ I also have monster cable on that 50ft run that's been there for over 30 years and seems okay even though i can see corrosion inside the insulation. I will probably replace it one of these days but still sounds fine.
  4. A Very Lucky Guy!

  5. Other brands of speakers...

    Started with AR 2ax then altec what ever model these were,,lol Then went to LaScalas.....never turned back.lol.
  6. Wire upgrde

    I vote for this www.knukonceptz.com/home-theater/speaker-wire/kord-speaker-wire/sp/kord-ultra-flex-12-gauge-speaker-wire-100/
  7. 2 Channel/amp

    The Emotiva would be a good one i bet......50 watts should be good enough. If you want older i still recommend a HK 430 if you can find one seems a lot of forum members snapped them up...Including me...lol. Where you located maybe a member could bring some stuff over for you to try.
  8. Hello! New 1977 era La Scalas owner here!

    You will need to replace the caps in the crossovers probably. I changed mine from AA to type A with out the diodes.

    www.knukonceptz.com/home-theater/speaker-wire/kord-speaker-wire/sp/kord-ultra-flex-12-gauge-speaker-wire-100/ This all you need.....What are you going to power them with. Here's a pic of my 1980 ones that i veneered and rebuilt the crossovers.
  10. 2 Channel/amp

    I think you should try the HK 430 or 630 or 730.......but if you want new you have to make sure it has phono inputs which is hard to find these days.
  11. I also used those https://www.parts-express.com/erse-super-q-25mh-16-awg-500w -inductor-crossover-coil--266-908 They look well made and i liked the specs. No clue if they sound better. I had hard time finding them the other day parts express site is hard to navigate i think.
  12. Pegboard cabinet door grills

    If you want the old white lambs wool type fabric https://www.123stitch.com/cgi-perl/itemdetail.pl?item=59-135X
  13. Depends on what you listen to i think. Go find a member that has some and listen to them. Your talking about new ones or older ones?

    Don't forget the used route....RF-7s II in lake Ozarks for 695 right now...also Mahogany K-Horns for 6500 made in 2000 in Kansas city ,Mo. https://www.accessories4less.com/make-a-store/item/intdtr303/integra-dtr-30.3-7.2-ch-x-100-watts-thx-networking-a/v-receiver/1.html

    I would say call Cory Harrison for the speakers he also has AVR and separates....look at Accessories4less for refurbished AVR i bought Integra from them . All boils down to your budget but spend most of it on speakers get the best you can afford.
