  1. Other members report that gaskets from those plumbers-sets work very nicely. https://www.amazon.de/NATUCE-Unterlegscheiben-Dichtungsringe-Rohrleitungen-Wasserhähne/dp/B089YQF279/ref=sr_1_39?__mk_de_DE=ÅMÅŽÕÑ&dchild=1&keywords=dichtung+set&qid=1623573252&sr=8-39
  2. First post in this section of the forum. I have a question for the history buffs here. I am interested in the writings of Alfred Thayer Mayhan, mainly his Influence of Seapower on History Trilogy. To get these books is easy enough; what i want to know and haven´t seen yet, are well annotaded editions of Mayhans works. Can anyone here maybe give me some pointers as to what books to look out for. Thanks!
  3. Got email from Michael Crites the other day, my grill fabric and mid-horn gaskets are on the way. Once stuff arrives i can get serious in restoring the cabinets. While waiting i will make new shelves for my CDs, collection of which outgrew my old IKEA ones. I will use the same technique as for my gear rack, just taller and a bit lighter. Finally bought a Blue Ray. It´s a Panasonic DP-UB824. Features are great, can watch Netflix on my big system now.. Still, i wish Marantz continued making BD-players, compared to the Panasonic, my DV7001 is a tank.
  4. I´m offering my old Pioneer LaserDisc player for sale. I know there will be next to none interested people. I´m reaching out to other german forum members that i don´t know yet and especially to @MicroMara and @KT88, do You know anybody who might be interested in this kind of vintage gear? If there is any interest in details like fotos, let me know please! Thanks, Andre
  5. No Billy, what would be Your estimation, please i would like to hear that too?
  6. If anybody else looks up this post, specs: http://images.klipsch.com/Brochure_960000-3_KM_635363545468718000.pdf
  7. Good to know Randy, i´ll keep that in mind.
  8. Yes, they were really hot, but by the time i could reply, they were gone...
  9. Well, the interest is there, but they are too far away and no shipping (plus i´ve had bad experience shipping speakers with german mail...) and i´m gonna take a look at an interesting Panasonic blueray this weekend wich will be approx.300€ if i buy. Almost got a pair of good KG4s two weeks ago. Thanks guys @billybob & @001
  10. Yep, they´re black alright: Price says "negotiable" and since we are in Germany here, i´m think the seller will ask some outrageous price for sure. Come with some old JVC receiver.
  11. On german ebay a pair of KM6 turned up. I never heard of them before. Google led to the spec-sheet for the whole line. Are these lower class contemporaries to the .5 KG line?

    You said Vancouver, yes? Well, the trees give it a mediterranean appeal. You really picked a nice spot.

    What I Got Today!

    My thoughts: - Didn´t mind the PS5 next to Jethro Tull. ^^ - What speakers are we looking at here? Excuse my lack of knowledge, but i don´t know the makers-logo... - AND – most interesting of all! Star Fleet Project? I haven´t heard Brian May´s music (yet), i asume You know the TV show?
  14. Those are beautiful. glws!
  15. Ah, so it isn´t meant for home-hifi per se, that is?
  16. I don´t mean to be a smart alec, that unit was not broken out of the box?

    Tubecube 7

    I am seriously considering the Elekit for the future. I like kits and it´s more affordable here in Europe. I would really like to try the Tubecube, alas...
  18. I bought tape like this one ( sorry, german amazon...): https://www.amazon.de/dp/B081ZQBQG8/ref=sspa_dk_detail_1?psc=1&pd_rd_i=B081ZQBQG8&pd_rd_w=pRJeI&pf_rd_p=b9377742-1edc-4d5e-b680-070f2360d891&pd_rd_wg=5BrWY&pf_rd_r=5ZE7SWDED643NA3JHZS3&pd_rd_r=4d316f63-1415-4db9-a090-ee146be7ba21&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUEyVFJSM0I4MlVLR0NOJmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwMzg4ODc3M1QzTTU1T09MNjFHTSZlbmNyeXB0ZWRBZElkPUEwOTYxMDIxM01aV1hGMlpZN0IzTSZ3aWRnZXROYW1lPXNwX2RldGFpbCZhY3Rpb249Y2xpY2tSZWRpcmVjdCZkb05vdExvZ0NsaWNrPXRydWU= I used it on the backpanels and i will use it to seal off the horns against the cabinets too. For replacing the gaskets on the midrange, You will find instructions, as well as parts on Michael Crites site. I think, the tweeters and their respective horns are bolted together, no seal. You can replace the diaphragms, but not seperate horn and driver.
  19. Welcome to the Forum! As far as restoring the shine to Your finish, You have to like it and as long as you don´t want to sand down the verneer to re-oil it, the restorer seems the t be the way. I have chips in my Heresys as well, i plan to use repair-wax to fill up the mising pieces. I guess, that is all one can do, apart from re-verneering the whole thing. Concerning Your old account, maybe @Chad , our moderator can help You out.

    What I Got Today!

    While it´s not for the faint hearted, there are instructions on iFixit for repairs. Have You thought about it? Or was the old mac getting long in its teeth anyway?
  21. Look up ebay and craigslist for prices if You want to sell. There are people looking for these. You can offer them up in the "Garage Sale" section of this forum.
  22. Those are Klipsch KG3: https://www.klipsch.com/products/kg-3 Nice speakers, if You were in Germany, i would ask if maybe You would like to give them away. If i were You, i would keep them.
  23. Marvel, i always wondered, won´t those rubber/plastic discs stick to the finish, given time?
