  1. So this is very interesting. Lots of people say, “replace the capacitors” but here is actual before and after test results. Thanks!
  2. So it isn’t clear from the page you posted. Did they replace all the caps? The page just talks about cleaning and retensioning the tube sockets. The performance clearly improved, I can’t tell if the caps were changed.
  3. I read the before and after specs, what happened in between?
  4. I've still got my analog NAD Tuner, bought in 1980. Analog dial, analog tuning. Unfortunately the signal strength meter is LED, not analog. But it is pre-auto tune, you can drift off the channel (happens very rarely). It will be part of my system until no FM or AM broadcasts are decipherable by it's old school circuits. But I rarely listen to it. My biggest mistake was letting my AM tube radio go in 2006. I grew up listening to baseball on an old crackling tube radio. It doesn't sound right any other way.
  5. I love all of this except don't hide the casters. Display them proudly. (Vintage-looking ones)
  6. I think laminating large panels is usually done with contact cement rather than PVA, others will probably chime in. Weighting a large panel and keeping it bubble free is difficult, contact cement is easier in that regard.
  7. That Heritage Theater Bar looks amazing. But when I saw the price I thought, “Better to cannibalize a set of Heresy speakers!” If this is his only sound system I would run separate speakers and use the console for storage. If he has a prime system and this is a second system in a different room then I’d try to reuse some Heresy speaker internals. That theater bar seems too expensive when compared to a “real” Heritage two channel system.
  8. I made new grill boards for two old Heresy speakers. They mounted with Velcro, I modified them to magnet mount. It was not hard. The KP-250 grill cover mounts with screws, not sure about the 201, but I'll bet you could figure out a way to make a "pretty" replacement.
  9. Many consoles of that era fired the woofers out the ends. Perhaps you could put a set of Heresy horns in front and fire the woofers out the ends. I'd still draw it ten times trying to get an entire unmodified Heresy in. I truly love that design but dropping a Heresy pair in is the best way to not mess up the sound.
  10. Peter P has some radical but interesting ideas. Do you have larger Heritage speakers in a different room anyway? You are going down a road to some type of compromise - these are worth considering.
  11. I love the look of that, I am a Mid Century Modern nut. Is there no way to scale it up to fit the Heresy's?
  12. I bought a sweet Magnavox console, but not for the sound, I want to put modern stuff in it for my Mid Century Modern man cave. I found out that the amp is actually prized by rebuilders. I have messed with electronics in my day, actually building two low powered tube guitar amps. So I am considering that. I'd probably rather pay a pro to do it if the price was not crazy.
  13. My Heresy's benefited from a 10" 50 watt sub. I don't play a extreme levels though and I don't play electronic music. Old rock and jazz do well with it though, and the subwoofer is very helpful when watching televised auto racing.
  14. also, did you move the leads with the speaker?
  15. So the old mid and tweeters are inactive and you raised the mid/tweeter by adding new? This is an interesting mod since most Heresy modifications attack improved bass.
