  1. Damn, I like my HIII. But now only have room for the LS II. Maybe I need a pair of HIV. With the kids gone, I could find space to set up in another room. Maybe I need to install MAHL or MWHL with BC 120’s in the HIII. Never noticed the highs being deficient, but you never know of improvements until you experience them. I liked the HIII so much it lead to getting the LS II. That was a step up.
  2. Hope fresh crossovers has these singing. What is serial number to see DOB? Never used the Watco product. Excellent results using Howard.’s Wax and Feed. It will darken the color a little. The larger horn has three sloppy coats and it is several shades darker than raw.
  3. There are trade offs when bridging an amplifier. Higher gain, higher output impedance, and higher slew rate. The slew rate may be what you hear as an improvement in bass quality. Driving LS II with bridged Micromega MyAmps. Doubt going from 30 watts to 120 is audible with LS II. Something is.
  4. Is that the HD or still an analog carrier?
  5. This one is way under the radar. Accessories4less has the Micromega Myamp for 249.95. Retail is 649.95. Integrated, class AB, ESS dac, USB, and Bluetooth. Three analog inputs, pre outs, and mono sub out. Only 30 watts into 8 ohms, doubles to 60 into 4 ohms. Should be fine with HIII. Bought one amp thinking Micromega is a solid company who prides themselves on quality products. I waste 250.00 all the time. Love it. Fancy 256 step analog volume control. Remote too. Never had an amplifier or active speaker with remote before. I have not hooked to my Heresy III. Maybe 40 hours on La Scala II’s. Sound is excellent. And dead quiet. Ear to tweeter and there is no noise with gain maxed. Only used as a power amp, analog input from another dac with volume control. But saw someone post the internal dac is better than his Micromega MyDAC. Not tried the Bluetooth either. If it matters, designed and built in France. Mattered to me.
  6. Do not know how much of the Rockford home gear was inspired by Acoustat. Rockford purchased them and moved the operation from Florida. The Acoustat TNT-200 and TNT-400 were high current amplifiers for driving the low efficiency and low impedance electrostatic speakers they were known for.
  7. I did not know original shipping packages were available. Been wanting a smaller sized Mac stereo power amp for a while. Will make sure this does not happen. The cost of restoration would be prohibitive for this one. Would purchase several replacements.
  8. It is late to the game, I have a recommendation. Micromega Myamp. Integrated with a dac. class AB, not a digital amp. Dead quiet on La Scala ii. 30 watts into 8 ohms and 60 into 4 ohms. Best thing is 249.95 at accessories4less. Built in France too. Only have used as a power amp, it has a sweet volume control, Bluetooth, and remote control. Price is a highly discounted, they list for 649.95. I use homemade amps. This sounds identical. My amps have no dac, volume control, Bluetooth, or remote and cost me 800.00 to 1,000.00 to build.
  9. The black set in the middle is the K-77F used in the Scala ii.
  10. I have a low hour pair of La Scala II tweeters sitting. Maybe 200 hours and work perfect. Includes the horn. Changing out is not bad. Found a tutorial on this site. They have to be changed from the backside. There are screws holding them in place. First time it is a 30 minute job. Second unit time is 20. PM me if interested.
  11. I hate to say it, but my LS II most likely do not measure a lot better. At least in near field. Listening distance needs to be a lot more. Not that they sound the same.
  12. The picture is the unfinished back to the crucifix. The finish looks to be a high gloss clear. I like the grain pattern that runs through some of the wood. The wood is very stable and tough. They machine 10 mmm round beads and somehow orient to center bore with the the grain. All the holes are centered. Never had one crack. I am worse off than the worry about naming. The looks of the horn is important to me. Never see it again after installation.
  13. Then maybe only oil wood from the Middle East has the tight grain. The Spanish, Greek, and Italian olive groves are in a more temperate climate. The desire for tight grain is driven by the machining done. Noticed Dave has given in to helicoils or wood inserts. These are usually a very course thread on the outside and a machine thread on the inside.
