  1. hear hear. I agree. many thanks @captainbeefheart for sharing your knowledge, effort, even mistakes with us all here so that we might actually learn something.
  2. I don't (yet) have the amp collection some of you folks do, but I'm working on it, lol. following this thread with interest. not sure once more details are firmed up if I will participate due to my time constraints. but I promise this - if I buy into any kit that may come available, that will not go to waste if I can help it. I am certainly a beginner where this is concerned, and can probably manage a decent solder joint. but I'm interested enough to follow along, and if time were no object, I'd be all in. so with all that said, what I would say for me to begin with would be a decent entry level amp, not too complex for a noob but would turn out to be a decent finished product. reduced intimidation would certainly be good.
  3. following, as this idea intrigues me too. looking to up the rest of my game now that I've got the speaker part of the list checked.
  4. @jvs1670 - great looking HK you have there! glad you were able to get/keep it going. I missed a twin power unit here not too long ago. sometimes I suffer paralysis of analysis and miss out.
  5. I'd have to get a lawyer... for the divorce. And then go wife shopping, AGAIN.

    make sure you get everything you want on that 1st trip... then

    and a consideration might be: when you go to pick up the speakers, pack several trash bags. keep the speakers & anything else, and bag the rest right then & there.
  8. Yes, they sound INCREDIBLE! my wife, who is a saint putting up with me and allowing me latitude with very little push back, stood at the end of the room and closed her eyes. She said she thought she was in the audience at the performance! Unbelievable!
  9. congrats on winning the auction. I was a competing bidder who would rather I had won, but that's how it goes sometimes. sounds like they're in a good home, and that's important. so congrats again to you, and enjoy.
  10. so I found my pair! still amazed at what I found! and how absolutely FABULOUS they are!!! I found a pair of KB MEL Macassar Ebony Lacquer, 1981, not far from me! seller delivered today. I helped him unload, reassemble top hats back to bass bins, side panels, etc. got them connected, and WOW! Unbelievable! and gorgeous! just absolutely beautiful! https://postimg.cc/gallery/s5VGBr8 I've been watching here & other places for a bit, and finally taking the plunge here with a WTB post. Looking for a K-horn pair. cannot think of any absolutes but I do have preferences: KB - I like the collared look. finish - lean toward walnut but open for discussion. stock or close to it - bit, here also-flexible. location - preferably in SE USA. I live in Sweet Home, Birmingham. was watching a recent auction in Nashville area that for location was pretty good. price - depends on what we're looking at, but would, again-prefer, to find something other than a total rehab project. looking for a finished, or mostly finished product. I haven't considered how much work I'm willing to take on, so let's say keep that lite. I drifted. price: depends, but willing to go to 4k for the right pair. if I've missed any details to help, I've been here enough to know how good membership is about calling for more info. so just do that & I'll do my best. thanks.
  11. even more reason to get there in a hurry, right?
  12. not much info shown, and only 1 photo. looks like Heresys to me. $100 somebody jump in the car! get these before the flippers do! CL - P-cola FL
  13. sure, makes perfect sense. anyway, missed that one. I got the impression that I was next in line, since seller came back to me this morning, and I told him I have to work, let's meet up around lunch, and he agreed. but it is now sold.
  14. I say boat anchor because IDK yet exactly what condition it may be in. but I'm meeting a local at lunch today who posted for sale a Mc 2100 for $400. he says: "For parts or not working. New amplifier boards . Out of my technical abilities. Nor do I have the time. No help selling. Obo" I have a friend who seems to be trained & experienced enough, and says with help, hell yeah you can figure out what ails it & fix it. so, would you guys say this is worth that investment, even if it isn't much more than a boat anchor right now? also - I saw it popup last nite. I offered him $300 then. he said another guy had offered to meet asking price $400. so I countered that with 'ok, if he doesn't show, I'll match his $400' maybe a ploy to get his asking price, or not. idk. thanks.
  15. Yes, thanks for that. Usually little good comes from rushing to do something.
  16. Sometimes I'm a bit "commitment adverse " in that I'm not always sure I wanna pull the trigger. So to avoid any undue effort etc with fellow forum folk, I've not yet come out with a WTB post. But I do watch much more frequently than I have in a while. And responded to a couple FS posts that didn't turn out.
  17. Well maybe someone from here was the winning bidder. Bidding was very slow until the last 2-3 minutes, when the price jumped 2k-2500 in the last 5 minutes. Hammer price was $6500 +up to 13% buyers premium. Oh well. I'm not quitting; just have to keep looking/watching.
  18. over in this thread in Alerts! - - prior to this estate sale offering, someone had kept the boxes for their '88 K-horns... maybe even had kept the speakers IN the boxes! although I find that hard to believe! (I've kept a pair of R28-Fs in their boxes just because my wife gave them to me, which means I will probably be buried with them. but I have expanded the family to include a pair of Heresies and CWs, so decisions had to be made. hence they got boxed up.)
  19. Yes. Not the 1st example in the area from the 80s with their original boxes! Very pretty.
  20. this would not be the 1st time I've missed something, but I don't understand the connection to the 74 KBWO. you have a line on that pair if a member is interested? or you're looking at that pair for yourself? or did you 'splain this & I missed it. thanks.
  21. yes - in the terms of purchase, pick up is specified "All items must be picked up and paid for on NOVEMBER 29, 2021 10:00am-4:00pm"
  22. and you very well may be right. but I will keep on looking if that turns out to be the case. oh well. I've been looking. and I may just keep on looking. we shall see. and yes, not happy about the buyer premium, but that's part of this deal. so be it. if I want them, have to play their game.
  23. I might need to chat you up to talk about this... to grab that pair, assuming a reasonable reserve value, a weekend pickup would certainly be easier to plan. but, at a good price, you know, we sometimes surprise ourselves at what we can manage to pull off.
  24. thanks for the info. yes, it is beautiful. here's hoping for a trip to Music City with a purpose!
  25. they DO look gorgeous! IDK what type grille cloth that is but I like it. and btw, thanks @uteman1011 for sharing this find. I'm not sure how I'll get any sleep between now & when the auction closes...
