  1. I have a smokey mountain and I have had it for years. It makes darn good food and the virtual Weber bullet is a great site.
  2. Want to sell them as is? Yes, I am serious.
  3. Pretty darn clean! If I didn't just drop a bunch of money on Belles I would probably drive the 2.5 hours.
  4. Is there any known info on how many Belles were produced in total or even how many Belles were produced each year. I know they are rare. I guess I am curious on how rare. I have these two Belles: lN249 and lN250 which apear to be from 1975. I am sure others would like production numbers on other models as well if you have them.
  5. I don't know enough to build my own. I would only know enough to get the same spec caps that I have right now. From there I could solder them in. But I don't know anything about the transformers, etc. that are on the old ones. So I would either need my hand held or I should stick to either ordering a kit or the crossovers from Bob. On a side note, didn't DeanG get out of the business? I thought I read that at some point.
  6. I looked at the crites stuff. I worked with in on my previous Chorus II. I was looking at the 4500/A crossover he offer which requires the tweeter change. That would leave me with my AA crossovers for historical and resale purposes. That would also leave my k77s with factory items in it. But that is a higher cost than just ordering caps from Crites. Any thoughts on this? Did you just redo the caps?
  7. There is a Dynamic St-500 close to me. It is an old tube amp. Would it be something to play with to start? I know nothing about tubes. So I wouldnt want to invest much yet. It is the same one that is on ebay.
  8. I just purchased a set of Klipsch Belles a few days back. I am still messing around with setup, placements, etc. Yes know room will play a role in all of this. Just looking to see what worked for others with Belles. Towed in? A lot? A little? Of the back wall or on? Close to corners or away? The room is in my finished basement. Walls and ceilings are drywalled and insulated. I only have an area rug and a large couch as notable items to help with sound down there. So, I know I will have to change that. Presently they are being powered by a Marantz 7011 as a preamp and a Parasound HCA-2205 amp. I haven't even had a chance to wrap my head around other options at this point. Ie may poke around at a tube amp at some point, but the Belles will serve mixed use. Likely 80-90% music and the rest would be home theater. Belles are 1975 with AA crossovers. They are all original. In the past I had RF7, Chorus ii, Chorus, xf48 in Klipsch. I have had other models outside of the Klipsch name as well. Nothing quite like the Belles though.
  9. Can anyone tell me anything about this RARE integrated amp? I guess I am looking for real life info. Specs only say so much. I have attached a picture of its guts. It looks like it is built like a tank. Yes I know I could probably find something close to as good for less money. I like to have an interated amp around the house. This should but much nicer than my onkyo a7070. I keep getting drawn back to this thing. Probably because they are so hard to find. Here are the specs: Power output: 130 watts per channel into 8Ω (stereo) Frequency response: 5Hz to 50kHz Total harmonic distortion: 0.08% Damping factor: 50 Input sensitivity: 2.5mV (MM), 150mV (line) Signal to noise ratio: 76dB (MM), 90dB (line) Output: 150mV (line), 30mV (DIN) Speaker load impedance: 4Ω to 16Ω Dimensions: 440 x 154 x 388mm Weight: 21.3kg Year: 1977
  10. Added to original Post. Thanks for the heads up.
  11. I have no pictures under 2.0 mb! I will have to get some later.
  12. I had been spending a lot of time in one of the facebook groups. But I am learning quickly that I have out grown most of that. Nothing wrong with any of the people. But lot of the answers are given by people that are guessing. At least here you can put your questions in the appropriate area an likely get an educational answer.
