    Restoring worn speakers

    I do not own Klipschorns, nor have I ever heard them. But I do have a nice set of La Scala speakers. I drive them with an old Yamaha set up: a C-60 preamp and an M-65 power amp. They sound superb. Members here who who do own the big boys are split between tube amps and solid state. The speakers are highly efficient and can be driven to excessively loud levels with low powered amps (>25 watts). In the solid state arena, members use class A; class AB and some use class D. All have pluses and minuses. It is a matter of which you personally prefer. (Which sounds best to you) Prices can range from a few hundred used to a second mortgage new. Due to the the age of the speakers, the crossover networks may need to have the capacitors replaced, as these components will degrade over time. More knowledgeable members will undoubtedly chime in soon with more details. As to the veneer, for me this would be the last step, after the network update. Welcome to the forum, and enjoy the fantastic speakers you have!


    As you wish........

    New love for Klipschorns



  5. Only the "NON-SHORTENING"caps do dat.



    Cables, Coffee, and Cocktails

    After dinner, I love rendering the Christmas ham. It makes me feel like quite the orthopedic surgeon, as I disarticulate de head uv da femur, slicing thru da acetabular labrum near the lunate surface, dissecting da pubofemoral and ischiofemoral ligaments, and laying waste to da articular cartilage. Den da dogs gets da femoral head and de ilium\ischium acetabular segments. Aaaahhh good times, good times.

    Fixing noisy doorbell....

    Fixing noisy doorbell....

    Is it a relay? Current thru the coil may be causing the hum.

    What I Got Today!

    The Yellow Peril has a flavor which reminds me uv de habanero I grew about seven years back. Not my favorite, but will be used to add heat to pots of chili. The Red Menace is prime. Not an every day sauce, but the flavor Iz "Me Gusta"! It will be reserved for me, when I want the heat. The other three are prime table sauces for all to enjoy, as they combine a bit of heat with zesty, fruity flavor. (And a wide, deep flavor stage and sparkle, bumping, thumping kick, etc.) (Are you being sarcastic?) (No, just normal Nooo Yawk, Italian/Irish) (OK) P.S.S. : The pro version delivers the heat at a much higher level than the heritage.

    What I Got Today!

    A shipment uv @oldtimer hot sauces. Tested most of them on some tamales which were delivered Saturday. The Hawaiian Firecracker were both fruity, full bodied, and possessed of moderate heat. The Red Menace XX and the Yelow Peril were both quite flavorful, but probably not for novices. These are both quite spicy. Had me sweating profusely, and may burn tomorrow. I prefer the flavor of the red over the yellow, but that is just personal preference. I will try the Tropical Tiki at my next meal. Yum 👅 👅 NOTE: There were two more bottles, but they were duplicates uv the hottttt ones.
