  1. Here is a 2230: https://www.shopgoodwill.com/Item/123192753
  2. There is a 2235 here loclally: https://portland.craigslist.org/wsc/ele/d/hillsboro-vintage-marantz-and-sony-hi/7330796338.html Lemme know if your interested in it and want to have me get it and ship it to you.
  3. What Mcintosh gear did he say he has? I'm local to Portland, so if anybody needs storage when purchasing this from afar let me know. I'm happy to help.
  4. I used this AP2 MKii for a little bit and it certianly helped with digitial music sounding better when used with the different dacs I have (had). I have the AP2 MKi with PP and I've decided to keep the AP2 MKi with PP and send this one(AP2 MKii) down the road to fund other purchases in the future. Sorry for any confusion. $275 plus shipping and PP fees.
  5. These are listed here locally: https://portland.craigslist.org/clk/ele/d/vancouver-klipsch-heresy-ii/7324278203.html Pretty steep, but maybe I'm wrong.
  6. I will call the place in NJ next week and chat with him. Since he works on thee things, maybe he can provide some more guidance.
  7. Its my understanding with this model that they have to run together. I've been told and have read its a No No to turn the controller on without having the sub attached. 🤷‍♂️
  8. The servo controller box as well as the subwoofer box are very easy to open and take a peak inside.
  9. I have reached out to them, but its probably cost prohibitive because I would have to ship the service controller and the sub box to them cross country.
  10. Well the mechanical hum of the servo controller has gotten worse and the popping is becoming more frequent again....... I'm going to start considering other options. One question I have, is a horn loaded servo controlled sub a thing? I really like the tightness of the Velodyne servo controlled bass. Or if I considered the La Scala mod for the ported stand would that be a good replacement for a sub, or will that just still be lacking? There are some songs where I really enjoy that bass hit, like I'm at a conference and also other songs where I like hearing that down low growl in vocals that comes from artist like Captian Beefheart and Guy Clark. Thanks for any help or suggestions!

  12. Which Seismic sub do you have?
  13. Very good, but are they sonically BETTER in any way than the normal La Scalas?

  15. https://salem.craigslist.org/ele/d/salem-klipsch-studio-la-scala-speakers/7310912732.html Seems like a good deal. Also, what is the biggest difference performance wise between these and normal la scalas?
  16. Nice! I've always thought it would be fun to double stack them in my room! And then listen from down the block! 🤣
  17. This was not previously mentioned in the rest of the thread. Thanks! I have never set the bias on the St-70, the last tube amp tech I had check it out, reset it with the newer tubes I got for it. I'm running a NOS GZ37 and new Tung Sol El-34s and NOS RCA 7199 blackplates, in that amp right now. I will admit its a bit daunting to me to take this bias adjustment on, cause I don't want to ruin anything, but I also want to learn more about all of this, so I will find some time to try out what Bob Latino suggests The ST-35 doesn't have bias pots and James Burgess PP 45, this is what James told me There are no bias adjustments. It is set up so the AC(signal) balance of the phase inverter can be adjusted. This is only necessary when changing/replacing the 6SN7 tubes. All the tubes in the James Burgess are NOS and close matched. I listened to the PP 45 last night and ignoring the noise, the sound was divine. Thanks for your thoughts and help!
  18. So, should I look into placing some resistors across the speaker wire connects on the crossover? Would that help? But, Yeah, I guess I will learn to live with it.....for now..... Thanks for your help! 🙂
  19. Welp, I turned off every circuit in the house except the one that the stereo system is on and the buzz still persists. What's weird is that my SET amp doesn't have the buzz, it has a dull hum up close, but all of my push pull amps have this same buzz. Video attached of the sound from 3ft away from the speaker. Headphones are helpful to hear it, because of taking the video from my phone. 20210423_194609_2.mp4
