  1. I’ve got Yamaha C-60 pre and an M-65 power amp which I love. They can be problematic, though. Three common issues are: Solder joint failure on the I/O jacks The same on heat stressed parts (usually transistors. And the most common, the “Dreaded Sony Bond Glue” problem. I’ve had to deal with all three, but keep these as my every day system cause I love the sound. The Crown and QSC I used while T/s and repair activities were pending on the Yammy just did not sound as good to me, so once fixed the Yamaha was back in.
  2. First thing I saw: First rate work, as ever.


    Boy, is that nice!

    What I Got Today!

    Mild heat exhaustion. Trimmed some palms inna backyard. High and tight. Got to use a variety of ladders, edged weapons and three liters of cool water. But they look much better now.
  5. Never heard the “More Noise” story, but the contraction is correct.
  6. If you have woodworking skills, someone on here prolly has dimensions. If you are looking to purchase: Garage Sale There are vendors on e-bay Crites Speakers may have them Good luck with the search.
  7. I do believe yer toaster wuz held up at the border…..


  9. Not SS; not valve. But it iz vintage, and purely mechanical. All the way from Camden, New Joisey, by way of New York, West Germany, Maryland, Colorado and Az, (🎼🎵”And all points in between”🎶 I have schlepped dis ting around da woild) featuring “Nipper”: The Victor Talking Machine!
  10. This resembles the Chihuly art on display down here. I wonder where he gets his inspiration. https://dbg.org/exhibits/chihuly-in-the-desert/2021-12-23/
  11. Raining in the desert. First time in months. Even the ducks are walking, and the lizards are seeking shelter.
  12. Excellent! So “Friends and neighbors” can do more than send you a draft notice.
  13. Pretty sure I have read on the forum that the R indicates a Klipsch warranty or replacement part. I don’t have the link so take this with a grain of salt. Well Randy beat me to the keyboard, but seems I may have been correct. Holy affirmation, Batman!
  14. Indeed. But I already knew this, and I am reminded daily by my bathroom mirror…..
  15. $1225 for the package. Still a major bargain for all, and a reasonable price for the amps alone. ~ 30 hrs left…… Gentlemen: Start your engines.
  16. At the current bid, the price is about $15 per amp or $3 per pound of gear. Plus lots of other stuff. https://www.publicsurplus.com/sms/auction/view?auc=2929675

    What I Got Today!

    Indeed. I have been tracking the Az part of the site: https://www.publicsurplus.com/sms/all,az/browse/allcat for about five years now. Useful gear shows up in Az about quarterly, but most times it is either 200 miles one way to pick up, appt only; or gets too rich for me. This one was a bonus, too. The 10 auction pix showed only one view of two of the QSC and the Crown. There were four of the QSC PLX 1602 on the pallet when I picked up. Three miles from my home. Life is good this month….

    What I Got Today!

    Chandler school district upgraded some auditorium sound systems and My bid won the auction of the old kit. I’m keeping most of the amps, but after I make sure the lights come on, the live performance gear will be available.
