  1. RC3s and Heresys in a small room here too, no harshness i would care to notice.
  2. And I already have thoughts of how to modify my rack with a pull-out board for the TT. This never ends... Always new ideas. If only i had as much time & money as I have ideas...
  3. Resurrection time! I've decided to get a TT as well. I'll go down vintage road and will have a look at a Dual 1218 on Tuesday. " Ready to set up for audition", we'll see how that goes. I already made up my mind to rip the whole thing apart and do a revision. There's a german forum ( dual-board.de ) i signed up to with lots of help. If there's interest, i can post about progress, once i get to details. The 1218 seems to be an upper-level player for beginners these days, for me anyway. Really wanted a Thorens but was too slow (again) to get a reasonably priced TD 160 (200€). The Dual will be 55€, and i will have to work on it, but once it works it might be more fun than just plug and play.
  4. "so it will likely be cool for people who enjoy seeing old things given a new life, like I do." My sentiment exactly.
  5. We like pictures of new arrivals. 😉 (The Heresys that is.) Also, there is a thread for Heresy owners, if You' re interested: And welcome to the Forum!
  6. Wow, those are real lookers! Makes me think, if i ever was to re-verneer my RF3s, this verneer instead of walnut...?
  7. Those subs make the Heresys look like they are really just bookshelves...
  8. What do You want to do/ what type of problem do You have?

    KP-250 II

    I was misleading, I wasn´t talking about myself. To expect a forum member in the US to help me out here in Europe would be a little much to expect...

    KP-250 II

    Nobody in the San Diego area on this forum to help out?
  11. This is used for all my electronic cleaning needs. As for Your straw Billy...
  12. First thing i did. 😉 Thanks for all the quick input!! Found the relais on eBay, next to a picture of some cavernous warehouse in China.

    https://www.discogs.com/de/release/3350006-Quiet-Riot-Rehab Waited for too long to get this one, all songs great. RIP Kevin DuBrow.
  14. These speaker relais in my Yamaha give me some trouble lately, i have to push the appropriate speaker select button a few times to make the left speaker work on the A channel and for the right one on the B channel. I already gave the buttons a spray of contact-cleaner. Do you think it might be feasible to drill a little hole in them to get some de-oxifier inside?
  15. I´m not sure, but will this work with the dispersion of the horn (horizontal vs. vertikal)? What i mean is, these were designed to be used in horizontal position, no? I know on some of the Reference & Reference Premiere lines horns could be turned to allow laying a speaker on its side.
  16. Hello and welcome to the Forum! Do You have bana plugs on both ends of your cables ( speakers and the Sony)?
  17. HDMI pass thru means that a signal, from your DVD for example, will go to your TV, even if the receiver is turned off. This only works if both, TV and DVD player are hooked up to the receiver. But with my receiver, it only works if it is in stand by.

    My girlfriend came back from Japan yesterday and brought this back for me: https://www.discogs.com/de/release/16391550-Akira-Ifukube-Zyu-Akira-Ifukube-90th-Birthday-Concert This is special interest really IMO. But Ifukubes life was very interesting and so is his music. A studied forester, he made his hobby his lifes blood. In the west he is mainly known for the music he composed for most of the old Godzilla movies. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Akira_Ifukube

    The Other Discs

    When I read about it, i couldn´t resist and ordered: https://www.discogs.com/de/release/3091197-Basil-Poledouris-The-City-Of-Prague-Philharmonic-Orchestra-And-Chorus-Nic-Raine-Conan-The-Barbarian- Re-recording of the 1982 movie OST, two discs, just over two hours of music. About a third of the tracks were unreleased before. This is a much clearer recording, compared to my 1987 muffeled original. Details are different, for example: • On the old recording the drums are prominent. • Some tracks are played a little slower (my impression). • Makos (Iwamoto Makoto) opening is missing in this recording. Now i´m looking for this to make my collection complete: https://www.discogs.com/de/release/4430514-Basil-Poledouris-Conan-The-Barbarian-The-Complete-Original-Motion-Picture-Soundtrack
  21. I can add another version. From the BSG OST SE3:
  22. I own a SR6008. Here the tone controls are hidden inside the audio menue, but Audyssey must be activated for them to be accessible, if i remember correctly. And no, mine does not get noticably warm in standby... Maybe a dust related problem? I´d do a rudimentary set-up and see if everything works, maybe clean it inside.
