  1. 🧀🍺⛵ I really wish you both the best outcome here. I am looking forward to all the pics and reviews coming as a result of this deal actually happening. Am a huge fan any day high end excellent quality vintage Klipsch gear comes near my hometown.
  2. (7) QSC mx 1500a showed up near me today. $180 each https://madison.craigslist.org/ele/d/madison-qsc-amps/6839823117.html
  3. I am so sorry. Thats hurts. Prayers sent. I do not have experience with those products. Just in case you had not thought of it. Alexa enabled devices with speakers are another choice for fast and short term solution. Able to call 911, or anyone. Easy to set up. Internet and wifi required. Multiple locations usually needed. Voice activation also required. Just trying to help anyone realize that many homes have these devices installed already, and can be used for emergency purposes.
  4. Too bad they are not oiled walnut. If they were I would flip my black lacquers. Nice and local too.
  5. Anyone into vintage cardboard?

Bongiorno designed amplifiers in six different decades, working alongside other industry legends such as Richard Sequerra, Sidney Smith, David Hafler, Morris Kessler, John Curl, and Bascom King. Bongiorno will best be remembered for Great American Sound (GAS), the company he founded in 1974 after leaving SAE. The GAS Ampzilla power amplifier was an instant classic, outperforming many much more expensive amplifiers and sending ripples through the industry. Bongiorno was eventually forced out and the company folded a few years later. He quickly founded a new company, Sumo Electric Company, Ltd., to bring his circuits to moderately priced products. As with GAS, disputes between business partners led to Sumo’s premature demise. Sumo's class AB Andromeda has a full wave, four quadrant balanced topology exercising total control over any loudspeaker connected to it, regardless of load type. It's four independent push-pull feedback loops maintain your speakers in absolute phase with the musical signal, resulting in perfect imaging and a wide soundstage. Andromeda achieves its astonishing accuracy through a combination of high power output - 200 watts per channel into 8 ohms and up to 350 watts into 4 ohms, and a complete lack of current limiting. Rather than introduce invasive circuitry to protect the amplifier, which leads to restricted dynamic range and increased distortion, Sumo engineers put extremely wideband, extra high dissipation power transistors at the output. The dynamic range and awesome deep bass response of Andromeda was unapproached by any other amplifier of its time. SPECS Power output in watts RMS per channel 2 channels driven 20khz-20khz @8Ω 200Watts @THD<0.05% Power output in watts RMS per channel 2 channels driven 20khz-20khz @4Ω 350Watts @THD<0.1% Damping factor: 300 from 20Hz-1Khz Input sensitivity: 1.8V Input impedance 100K Ohms Signal to noise ratio: 100dB Dimensions: 19" x 8.75" x 7" Weight: 35 lbs. Original MSRP $899 Manual available upon request Everything about Electra's design underlines Sumo engineering's fanatic attention to detail. While other preamps give you volume controls, Electra provides laser-trimmed stepped attenuators for volume, bass treble and balance. These controls will pass high frequency square waves with no apparent distortion, and offer near-perfect channel to channel tracking. 1% metal film resistors are used throughout the signal path. The phono preamp stage for moving coil cartridges is both fully complementary and DC coupled, as is the FET magnetic phono stage. The entire preamplifier remains in phase from input to output. Even the circuit topology has been configured to reject stray magnetic fields, which can introduce hum and noise into the system. When Electra is used with other Sumo equipment, such as the Andromeda, the interaction is synergistic. The whole is greater than the parts. You will hear a wide, accurate soundstage, incredible dynamic range, astounding definition throughout the audio band. In short, the natural, effortless purity of live music. SPECS Frequency response: 2Hz to 100kHz +/-3db 20Hz-20Khz +/-0.1db Low filter (Quasi-2nd order) 20Hz -3db Total harmonic distortion: 0.01% Gain @1KHz: 68dB (MC), SNR 65db 42dB (MM), SNR 70db 20dB (Tuner, Aux, Tape), SNR 100db Input sensitivity 3V RMS-1KHz: 0.115mV (MC), 2.3mV (MM), 315mV (line) Crosstalk @20KHz -60db, @below 1KHz -80db Dimensions: 19" x 3.5" x 9" Weight: 12lbs.

  7. For the serious collector. You will not find another pair for sale anywhere. If you don't know, just ask. Happy to help. Sold! My location is Fall River, Wisconsin 53932 Come on over for a listening session, no commitment required https://manuals.harman.com/JBL/HOM/Technical Sheet/L200t3 ts.pdf I have for sale 1 pair of L200T3 speakers. I actually have 2 pairs, but I am keeping one pair for myself. Audio Venture in Waukesh, Wisconsin is where the speaker drivers were restored. Paperwork will be provided in the sale. The cabinets are all hand done by me. Many hours have went into this. I just need some space back for other interests. These are extremely rare. Manufactured in 1990 only. Less than 1000 pairs were ever produced. Original MSRP in 1990 was $999 each. The L200T3 are easily compared to the JBL 4425 monitors, which were themselves the baby sister to the JBL 4430. Both L200T# and 4425 share the same bi-radial horn and driver. The differences are in the woofer, and cabinet. The cabinetry is identical to the JBL L100T3. Let me know if you require accomodations on getting these to your location. It is possible to split the cost of moving these over shorter distances by meeting me halfway. I will not be providing any form of freight style shipping options. If necessary I will deliver these myself, with a travel expense fee added to the final sale price.
  8. I could possibly book a trip to NE Indiana for anyone looking.
  9. All are welcome here. I hear San Francisco economics are unhinged from the rest of the Union. I wonder if that has anything to do with general asking pricing in that region. Just curious.
  10. I am not looking forward to the long days ahead when I begin the process of uninstalling, disassembling 14 jbl tweeters, removing, cleaning, replacing the speaker foam inserts, final reassembly, and then reinstalling. Fortunately all of the foam vent plugs in all of my JBL woofers have been removed and replaced with metal screens. I have had all my JBL woofers professionally rebuilt by Bill at AudioVentures in Waukesha, WI. Along with the foam surrounds, he also replaces the spiders, regaps the coils, and installs new dustcaps. If you are thinking about doing anything with those crossovers, better start saving up now. I am adding a pic of the stock JBL 250TI crossover for those out of the loop. Please note: on the second pic is 3.466KG. That's 7.641LB stock.
  11. Congratulations @tigerwoodKhorns. I know how difficult these are to acquire. Welcome to the club. Good to see I am not the only one running JBL and Klipsch rooms. I run Chorus II's also. Here is how I am set up currently. It is a small room, so compromise is required. They just sound so much better in there than in the open concept upstairs.
  12. Not being an expert on the subject, all I know is the Cornwall timeline available online. January 1986 Cornwall II were first introduced. I see the 1986 on the tag. I also see Cornwall. Where is the II moniker? Looks like they were signed C#.
  13. Not affiliated. Look nice from limited pics. Priced near current average. Not original owner. Crites tweeters. https://rockford.craigslist.org/ele/d/rockford-klipsch-cornwalls-ii/6838182197.html
  14. I would drive 8 hours for an original owner pair of Chorus II's (condition effects price of course). Unfortunately this pair is 2 days drive for me.

    SOLD Original owner. Paper work says I paid the $550 sale price which was MSRP $1000 in 2004 from Flanners Audio in Brookfield, WI. Condition is great. Function is like new. Issues are a minor ding, no chips, one grill peg is gone, but that does not effect sound or cosmetics. I have the original paperwork, but not the original box or packaging. I have never driven the sub over 50% and usually had it running %25 on the dial. My location is Fall River, Wisconsin 53932 Spec sheet http://images.klipsch.com/RSW10_635042119366650000.pdf?_ga=2.186152233.1035410326.1551473621-2070303326.1523799684 Manual http://images.klipsch.com/RSWSubManualEnglish_635042116596670000.pdf?_ga=2.186152233.1035410326.1551473621-2070303326.1523799684 The RSW line has been known as being Klipsh's best subwoofer line they ever produced. The sealed passive design allows for a much more compact size. The distortion levels are very low. This sub has a very musical quality, and integrates very well into a Klipsch speaker system.
