  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. 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.

    Sounds defensive. Didn't think my post implied offensive connotations. It was about the math. Relax. Where's my participation trophy?

    A now closed antiques store, I recognized the owners name in a facebook ad as a family friend and went to meet him.  

    Excellent! So “Friends and neighbors” can do more than send you a draft notice.

    Hi Dave, I believe they are solder lug, I did not grab a picture before I closed them up. Anyone know what the "R" stamp indicates on the mid?

    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!

    Wow, that's a score!

    Indeed. I have been tracking the Az part of the site:



    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….

  8. 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.
