    Tube Amp for newbie

    Dynaco Mark III's can still be found on the cheap ... they are inexpensive and easy to bring up to date, plus they pack a " huge " punch for the buck .. the iron in those old mark III's are worth there weight ... I just sold these to another forum member for 1500.00 CAN which is closer to $1200.00 USD ... fully restored and modified by Craig at Nosvalves Original purchase b4 mods was about $500.00 These amps can drive a pair of lascalas to near ear bleeding volume with headroom to kick you in the gut , with the added bonus of crystal clear clarity for your sonnet's .

    How loud can Klipsch speakers get?

    LOL .... Depends on the room and how many speakers you load it up with ! My first HT room had 4 K-horns ( Ft mains & Rears ) , a Belle as the center , a KLF-C7 as the rear center and a pair of Lascalas taking up the sides , plus 2 klipsch powered subs Pack all that into a 14x20 room and you've got SPL that will raise the hair on your head , powered by Three Rotel RB - 1090 & a RB-993 and look out My SPL meter was showing 130db plus in the center of the room ... the biggest thing was isolation of components , Black Diamond " Racing cones " and Black Diamond "Those things " under just about every component plus mission isoplats just to keep everything from vibrating into oblivion . PS : Add in about 15k worth of room treatments as well , or the horns will kill your ears .

    I'm guessing the cow dung in Calgary clouds the comprehension of the english language ... for the rest of us " finished " means the top coat , or the protective layer ... the last thing applied.

    Tung has been around for a looooooong time ... These just have one coat , I wanted to put something on the bare wood so it wouldn't dry out , but also something I could get back off if I wanted to , I live in northern alberta where its pretty cold and very dry in the winter months .. i've actually got a pair of black k-horns that have some grain splitting on the top hat sections due to just that . Oil is simple and easy for the DIY crowd or those with limited access to proper equipment .... I worked for 30 years as an autobody refinisher at a GM dealership where I had unlimited access to a $150k Alpo Rotocab down draft paint chamber , on weekends and evenings I use to spray lacquer for a local cabinet shop , I'm sure I've done 1000 or more complete kitchens , in return I got unlimited access to a million dollars in wood working equipment . If you look at my other thread with the Belle for sale , there's a pic on that thread of a pair of my birch k-horns spray stained with an alcohol stain and then one coat of lacquer sealer and one coat of 30% autolaq which is a pre-catalyzed lacquer .. not a spec of dust , dirt of lint in the finish , that's the bonus of access to a proper spray booth .

    Yes it was the first one ... this is actually the picture he sent me when he was burning it in . Mine has a volume pot , the second one he built had a step attenuator I do believe ...he did that one for chris if memory serves Down in the garage sale section I've got some brand new magnaquest iron 4sale and 2 walnut amp chassis to match this one , was going to build JFL 300B SET but never got around to getting at it ... life gets busy ...

    Russian 6N30P-DR SUPER TUBE

    Sign of the times ...... I threw away cases of these exact tubes 25 years ago , couldn't even give one away ! I bought a surplus lot of NOS tubes in 1992 for $200 that consisted of over 3800 tubes ( an entire skid of tubes ) Wishing I would have held onto some of that stuff now ...

    Single walnut belle -- edmonton area

    Bought this Belle from Greg Roberts ( voltiaudio ) like 15 years ago when he still lived in maine ... Think I paid $500.00 plus shipping , if I could get my money back out of it I'd be more then happy . PS : I've been on this forum for 20 years under various user names , I leave for a year or 2 and come back to everything changed and my profile long gone . Original user name was - Dalew
